In accordance with Articles 31, 32, and 33 of the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan “On Pension Provision in the Republic of Kazakhstan”, in the event of the death of a person who has pension accumulations of compulsory, compulsory occupational, and voluntary pension contributions, they are all inherited in the manner established by the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Inheritance of pension accumulations is carried out by will or by law. When there is no will or if it does not determine the fate of the entire inheritance, as well as in other cases established by civil law, inheritance by law takes place.
According to Section 6 (Inheritance Law) of the Civil Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan, in order to acquire an inheritance, the heir must accept it by applying for acceptance of the inheritance or an application for issuing a certificate of right to inheritance at the place of opening of the inheritance to a notary or authorized body in accordance with the law to issue a certificate of the right to inheritance. The inheritance may be accepted within six months from the date of the opening of the inheritance, i.e. within six months from the date of death of the testator.
To simplify the procedure, as well as optimization of the interaction between UAPF and notaries on these issues, the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Republican Chamber of Notaries, NIT JSC, and UAPF concluded an Agreement on the interaction of the state information system "Unified notarial information system" E-notariat "and the information system of UAPF (hereinafter referred to as the Agreement).
Under the Agreement, notaries through the implemented service can send online requests to the UAPF to obtain information about the balances and cash flows on individual pension accounts (hereinafter referred to as IPA) of deceased persons, without sending written requests.
After receiving from a notary a certificate of the right to inheritance in the form of pension accumulations available on an IPA of a deceased person, the heir or his authorized representative must apply with a package of documents to UAPF. A complete list of documents is available here: enpf.kz
If the list of documents is provided by the heir in full, UAPF makes a transaction within 10 working days from the date of receipt or receipt of documents by UAPF.

1. on the basis of documents submitted to UAPF;
2. by UAPF, and not by other individuals or legal entities;
3. to the bank account of an heir, including cases when a recipient of pension accumulations is a minor or an incapacitated/limited adult person. Payment of pension accumulations to the bank account of another person, even a legal representative (guardian/custodian) or attorney, is not allowed .
