(a)has not attained the age of 18; or

(b)is, in the opinion of the Secretary of State, incapable of managing his own affairs by reason of mental infirmity; or

(c)is being maintained in an institution to which Article 64 applies; or

(d)is a person in whose case the award can be forfeited or has been restored under Article 68;

or if, in any other case, the Secretary of State considers that it is in the interests of that person that it should be so administered.

(2) A pension or funeral grant which is being administered under this Article may, as to the whole or such part thereof as the Secretary of State thinks fit and at such times as he thinks fit, be applied for the benefit of the person to or in respect of whom it has been awarded or be paid to any person whom the Secretary of State considers a fit and proper person so to apply the same.

(3) Where a pension administered under this Article has not, when it ceases to be so administered, been wholly paid or applied, payment in respect of the part not paid or applied may be made either in a lump sum or by instalments of such amount and at such intervals as the Secretary of State thinks fit.
