Duration of compensation on death

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

15.—(1) Subject to paragraphs (2) and (5), a person’s short-term compensation under regulation 13 is payable from the day after that of the death, and the duration of the short-term compensation payable shall be ascertained from the table below.

Table 1

CategoryPerson entitled to short-term compensationDuration of compensation (months)
1.Spouse, civil partner, surviving nominated partner or nominated beneficiary3
2.One child or more where adult compensation is payable3
3.One child or more where no adult compensation is payable6

In the table above “adult compensation” means short-term compensation payable to a spouse, civil partner, surviving nominated partner or nominated beneficiary.

(2) Unless the compensating authority determines otherwise in the particular case, long-term adult compensation—

(a)is not payable if, at the date of the deceased’s death, the person to whom it would (apart from this sub-paragraph) have been payable is living with someone as if they were husband and wife or as if they were civil partners, and

(b)ceases to be payable when the person to whom it was payable marries, forms a civil partnership or begins to live with someone as if they were husband and wife or as if they were civil partners.

(3) But paragraph (4) does not apply to any long-term adult compensation payable following the death of a person who was in pensionable employment after 31st March 2007 or who would have been in such employment after that date but for an election under regulation B4 of the Superannuation Regulations.

(4) Short-term or long-term compensation payable to or for the benefit of a child ceases to be payable when he ceases to be a child.

(5) For the purposes of this regulation, two people of the same sex are to be regarded as living together as if they were civil partners if they would be regarded as living together as husband and wife if they were not of the same sex.
