The surviving partner may also be required to prove that he or she is entitled to an estate financial pension under the Protection of Families and Dependants Act 1975, which aims to protect the relatives of persons who die without leaving them adequate financial provision. In any case, the surviving partner may be subject to strong financial pressure, even if it is ultimately successful, during an ongoing claim. In 2014, the scope of this legislation will be extended to eliminate anomalies that may unfairly restrict the access of certain dependent persons to aid. Consider, for example, a case with a woman who had lived nearly three decades with her alcoholic partner before moving just before he died because she feared for his safety. .
