Legal Heir Certificate is generally required for the beneficiaries of a serving or retired employee, who passed away. If that retired person dies, family pension advantages will go to the next legitimate heirs. Generally, any levy to a man from Government or nearby bodies will be paid to lawful heirs on the death of that individual. This certificate can be used for insurance claims, retirement benefit claims, pension claims and can also be used for gratuity and PF claims.
