AMMAN — Social Security Corporation spokesperson Shaman Al-Majali said on Monday that amendments to the social security draft law will enable women to inherit in case of divorce or widowhood after the death of the testator (father or brother), according to Al-Mamlaka TV.اضافة اعلان

Majali said that the amendment related to women inheritors covers all cases prior to the adoption of the law, and that their shares will be disbursed as soon as they are approved.

“The law that is currently in force does not stipulate that married women and sisters receive their share of inheritance in the event of divorce or widowhood after the death of their testator,” Majali said.

He said that the amended draft law, which is in the process of being debated and enacted by the Lower House, will be presented to the SSC board of directors to go through the stages needed to obtain constitutional approval.
