Question posted in the General Law category relating to North West
I have an 11yrs daughter whose father passed on last year in June 2021 in Cape Town. By the time of death he had 5 children, 3 from same woman, 4th was mine, 5th (04yrs old) by another lady.
He was financially very committed father to all his children, because he was monthly maintaining my child including oaying for her school fees through debit order.
In January 2022 I went to the Master Court to enquire about what's due to my child because of her oustanding school fees & 2022 school fees, only to find that only his 2 eldest children (27yrs + 21yrs) were paid a lump sum of their late father's Pension Funds in November 2021 (4 months later) & that excluded their 12yrs sibling & both their half siblings ( my child included)
I really need your assistance to ensure that I /We recover what is due the other minor siblings

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment, even if it is R150 or R200.
You need to get hold of the pension company and tell them that they excluded some of the children from the pay out and that they need to sort it out. The pension company needs to know that your children were also financially dependent on the father.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required deposit, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make deposits for their questions - they get serviced first!
