174. The orphan’s or disabled contributor’s child’s pension ceases to be payable at the end of the month in which the beneficiary dies or ceases to be a dependent child within the meaning of paragraph a or b of section 87, or a child of a disabled contributor to whom a disability pension is payable under this act or under a similar plan.
Where a child became entitled to an orphan’s or disabled contributor’s child’s pension, as the dependent child of a contributor other than his father and mother, he ceases to be entitled to it at the end of the month in which he goes back to live with either of such parents.
The adoption of a beneficiary of an orphan’s pension by the surviving spouse, to the exclusion of every other person, does not terminate the pension.
