Payment of dependent child’s allowance

This section has no associated Executive Note

H2.—(1) Subject to the following provisions of this regulation, if a member dies in the circumstances described in any of regulations H3 to H7 and leaves a dependent child, the dependent child will be entitled to a child’s allowance as described in this regulation and regulations H3 to H7.

(2) If a dependent child is born after the member’s death, a child allowance shall be payable as if the child had been born before the member died.

(3) The child allowance will be paid to the child or, where the Scottish Ministers so decide, to some other person for the child’s benefit and if there is more than one dependent child, the Scottish Ministers will divide the allowance between them in such shares as they decide from time to time.

(4) Where a child is a dependent child by virtue of regulation H1(4)(d), the child allowance ceases to be payable after 12 months if the child has not then returned to full-time education, or full-time training for a trade, profession or vocation, but will be reinstated if the child later returns to some such education or training and the Scottish Ministers are satisfied that the child intended to do so from the start of the break.

(5) No allowance will be payable to, or for the benefit of, a child who is incapable of earning a living because of permanent physical or mental infirmity for any period exceeding one month during which the child is maintained out of money provided by the Scottish Parliament in a hospital or other institution.

(6) Where a child is a dependent child in relation to 2 or more members, the child allowance will be payable in respect of the death of not more than 2 of those members and if an allowance would be payable in respect of 2 or more members then the allowance will be equal to the sum of the 2 highest allowances.

(7) The child allowance ceases to be payable when there is no remaining dependent child.
