§1253.  Membership in family or relationship

If there is no one wholly dependent and more than one person partially dependent, so much of the death benefit as each is entitled to shall be divided among them according to the relative extent of their dependency.  No person shall be considered a dependent, unless he is a member of the family of the deceased employee, or bearing to him the relation of husband or widow, or lineal descendant or ascendant, or brother or sister, or child.  Regardless of dependency, no payments shall be made to the concubine of the deceased employee nor the concubine's children, unless those children are related to the deceased employee by blood or adoption.
