Surviving dependent child’s pension
This section has no associated Policy Notes

3.E.8.—(1) If a member or a recent leaver dies leaving one or more dependent children, a pension is payable in respect of them(1).

(2) This is subject to paragraphs (7) to (9).

(3) If a dependent child ceases to be a dependent child after the date of death, the pension ceases to be payable in respect of that child.

(4) If a dependent child is born after the date of death, the same pension is payable in respect of the child as if the child had been born on the date of death.

(5) If a member or a recent leaver dies leaving two or more dependent children, they are entitled to such shares of the pension as the Scottish Ministers may from time to time decide.

(6) An amount payable under this regulation in respect of a dependent child is payable to the dependent child or, if the Scottish Ministers so decide, to another person for the dependent child’s benefit.

(7) No pension is payable in respect of any dependent children who on the deceased’s death are dependent on an adult who is entitled to a surviving adult’s pension whilst that pension is payable at the rate mentioned in regulation 3.E.4(1) (pensioner members) or 3.E.7(3)(b) (re-employed pensioners), except so much of that pension as is additional pension.

(8) If a dependent child is incapable of earning a living because of physical or mental infirmity for any period and the child is maintained out of money provided by Parliament in a hospital or other institution for a period exceeding one month, no pension is payable in respect of the child for any part of that period after the first month.

(9) If, apart from this paragraph, a pension would be payable in respect of any person as a dependent child of three or more persons who were deceased members or recent leavers—

(a)a pension is only payable in respect of two of them; and

(b)the amount payable is equal to the sum of the two highest pensions.

(1)

For the rate at which the pension referred to in paragraph (1) is payable, see regulations 3.E.10 to 3.E.15 (amount of surviving child’s pension) and, in any case where that pension includes additional pension, regulations 3.C.12(4) (effect of payment of additional contributions) and 3.C.14(3) (effect of part payment of periodical contributions).
