  • to each legitimate or adopted son, an amount equivalent to two-fifths of the full rate until he attains the age of twenty five years:
    provided that in the case of legitimate son who is infirm and who is wholly dependent on the earnings of the insured person at the time of his death, dependants benefit shall continue to be paid while the infirmity lasts

     
  • to each legitimate or adopted unmarried daughter an amount equivalent to two-fifths of the full rate until she attains the age of eighteen years or until marriage, whichever is earlier; provided that in the case of legitimate or adopted unmarried daughter who is infirm and is wholly dependent on the earnings of the insured person at the time of his death, dependants' benefit shall continue to be paid while the infirmity lasts and she continues to be unmarried.
     
  • To the widowed mother  an amount equivalent to two fifths of the full rate for life.

If the total of dependants' benefit distributed among the widow or widows and legitimate or adopted children of the deceased person as aforesaid exceeds at any time the full rate, the share of each of the dependants shall be proportionately reduced, so that the total amount payable to them does not exceed the amount of disablement benefit at the full rate.
