Payment of children’s compensation

26.—(1) In a case where children’s compensation is payable in respect of children in relation to whom children’s short-term pension or children’s long-term pension is paid under regulation G11 of the LGPS Regulations (discretions as to payment of children’s pensions), children’s compensation—

(a)is payable to the same person; and

(b)is payable for the benefit of the eligible children in the same proportions,

as the children’s pension is payable.

(2) If children’s short-term pension or children’s long-term pension is not paid under regulation G11 of the LGPS Regulations because—

(a)of a relevant disqualification with respect to the deceased; or

(b)of the transfer of benefits to another pension scheme,

but otherwise (and on the relevant assumptions) it would be so payable, the employing authority shall decide to whom the children’s compensation is payable and in what shares it is to be apportioned amongst the eligible children.
