Section 4Family Benefits

Article 25
Orphan’s Benefit

(1) In this Article “Party” means—

(i)Great Britain, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man or Guernsey, or

(ii)Jamaica,

as the case may be.

(2) For the purpose of any claim to orphan’s benefit under the legislation of one Party any period of presence or insurance completed under the legislation of, or in the territory of, the other Party, as the case may be, shall be treated as if it were a period of presence or insurance completed under the legislation of, or in the territory of, the former Party.

(3) For the purpose of any claim to orphan’s benefit under the legislation of Guernsey, a person who has completed an insurance period under the legislation of Jamaica, shall be treated as an insured person under the legislation of Guernsey.

(4) Where orphan’s benefit would be payable to a person under the legislation of one Party if that person, or the orphan for whom the benefit is claimed, were ordinarily resident in the territory of that Party, it shall be paid while that person, or the orphan, is in the territory of the other Party.

(5) Where, but for this paragraph, a person would be entitled to receive orphan’s benefit under the legislation of both Parties in respect of the same orphan, whether by virtue of this Convention or otherwise, he shall be entitled to receive benefit only under the legislation of the Party in whose territory the orphan is ordinarily resident.
