How high is the widow’s pension in the case of an occupational pension?

Anyone who, in addition to the widow’s pension, has income from an occupational pension, from private pension provision, from capital or from supplementary pensions from public utilities may have to reckon with a reduction in the widow’s pension. The above-mentioned income is not taken into account if:
The spouse died before 1 January 2002.
the spouse died after 31 December 2001, but the marriage took place before 1 January 2002. In addition, one of the spouses must have been born before 2 January 1962.
