Transitional provisions for an increase of severe disablement allowance for adult dependents

28.—(1) Subject to paragraph (2), where an increase of severe disablement allowance is payable for an adult dependent at any time during a period of 56 days immediately before the appointed day by virtue of section 90, that increase shall continue to be payable and the provisions in regulation 24(2) to (7) shall apply to that increase as if that increase were an increase of long-term incapacity benefit in a transitional case.

(2) Where a person becomes entitled to severe disablement allowance by virtue of—

(a)section 68(10) (treating days of entitlement to disability working allowance as having been days on which a person was both incapable for work and disabled); or

(b)section 68(10A)(1) (treating days engaged in training as having been days on which a person was both incapable for work and disabled),

and an increase had been payable under section 90 or paragraph (1) when he was last entitled to that allowance, he shall be entitled to an amount equal to the amount of an increase payable under paragraph (1) if, by reason only of the fact that there is no child for whom he is entitled to an increase under section 80, he would not be entitled to an increase for an adult dependent under the Increases for Dependants Regulations; and the amount payable shall be treated as if it were an increase under paragraph (1).
