Jovanka Broz, who is 82, has lived in Belgrade in a government-owned house under a leaky roof and without heating since Tito's death in 1980.


She was receiving the equivalent of $155 month in state social welfare.


The Serbian government says it has now granted her a state pension worth $1,420 a month.
