Bereavement pension: eligible child

101.—(1) If a surviving partner’s pension is not payable on the death of the member, a bereavement pension is payable to an eligible child who is entitled to an eligible child’s pension on the death of an active member or a pensioner member.

(2) If the surviving partner dies before the end of the initial period and a bereavement pension was payable to the surviving partner, a bereavement pension is payable to any eligible child for the remaining part of the initial period or, if earlier, until the child ceases to be eligible for an eligible child’s pension.

(3) If the member was an active member at the date of the member’s death, the weekly amount of the bereavement pension payable under paragraphs (1) or (2) is equal to the difference between the weekly amount of pensionable pay which the member was paid at the date of the member’s death or, where the member was treated as receiving assumed pensionable pay, the weekly amount of assumed pensionable pay, and the weekly amount of the surviving partner’s pension.

(4) If the member was a pensioner member, the weekly amount of the bereavement pension payable under paragraphs (1) or (2) is equal to the difference between the weekly amount of the pension to which the member was entitled at the date of the member’s death and the weekly amount of the surviving partner’s pension.

(5) If there is more than one eligible child, the weekly amount of the bereavement pension payable under paragraphs (1) or (2) is divided by the number of eligible children so that each receives an equal share.

(6) If a person ceases to be an eligible child before the end of the initial period, that person’s share of the bereavement pension must cease to be paid and the share must be distributed equally between the remaining eligible children (if any).
