CHAPTER XII.—Certificates for Pensions of
Russian Subjects Abroad.

Russian subjects residing abroad who are entitled to receive Russian
State pensions, must send to the person whom they appoint to receive
their pensions in Russia, a power of attorney legalised free of charge
by a Russian State Consul, according to the note to Art. 9 of the
Russian Consular Tariff, together with a special certificate issued
by a State or Elective Consular officer in Russian, in the following

terms : " The Consul at.......hereby certifies that the pensioner

is alive, has produced a valid passport issued at (place and date of
issue), and that, so far as the Consul knows, the conditions under
which the right to receive the pension ceases, mentioned in Part VI.
of the Regulations as to Pensions, Edition of 1896, are not applicable to
him and that he has not, therefore, lost the right to receive the pension."

The above mentioned Part VI. of the Regulations as to Pensions
given by the Russian State, comprises Arts. 224, 231, 233, 235, of
Vol. III. of the Svod Zakanov, and is as follows :

The payment of the pension ceases :—

1. If the pensioner is reinstated in the service of the State ;

2. If the pensioner enters the active service of a Foreign
Government without the authorisation of the Russian Government ;

3. If the pensioner takes Holy Orders ;

4. If the pensioner remains abroad more than five years, reckoning
from the date of issue of his passport.

Persons who reside abroad on State service, or who have been
authorised by Special Decree of His Majesty the Emperor to receive
their pensions abroad, are exempt from these requirements.

The payment of a pension to a widow ceases1:—

1. On her death ;

2. On her re-marriage ;

3. On her entering a convent ;

4. If she is condemned by the decision of a court of law to a penalty
which involves the loss of her pension ;

5. If she remains abroad for more than five years, reckoning
from the date of issue of her passport, unless she has been authorised
by Special Decree of the Emperor to receive her pension abroad.

Pensions granted to widows and children, not on the foundation
of the Regulations as to pensions but by special order of His Majesty,
cease in accordance with special rules.

The payment of a pension to a son ceases2:—

r. If he dies ;

2. If he enters a public establishment and is kept there at the
cost of the Crown ;

3. If he enters the State service ;

4. When he attains the age of 17 ;

5. If he remains abroad longer than the terms for which he has
obtained permission, unless he has been authorised by Special Decree
of the Emperor to receive his pension abroad.
