How high is the tax allowance for widows’ pensions?

The widow’s pension serves to secure maintenance, but: survivors with their own income must have 40 percent of their own net income offset against the widow’s pension to which they are entitled. However, this income is only taken into account if it exceeds the tax-free allowances. Currently, the tax-free amounts are 883.61 euros in the East and 902.62 euros in the West.
If surviving children are also in the household, the monthly tax-free amount per child increases by 187.43 euros in the East and 191.46 euros in the West.
