I have been living with someone who is fairly well off for many years but we are not married. He is very ill and I am worried about how I will survive when he dies. Am I entitled to any monthly sum ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 02 May, 2022
The Inheritance Law of 1965 provides for maintenance from a deceased’s estate for both women who were married and for unmarried women (cohabitees). For a cohabitee to be entitled to maintenance from the estate under the act she must have been living together with the deceased when he died and neither of them should have been married to anyone else.
