child the right to benefit from social security, including social insurance, and

shall take the necessary measures to achieve the full realization of this right

in accordance with their national law.

2. The benefits should, where appropriate, be granted, taking into

account the resources and the circumstances of the child and persons having

responsibility for the maintenance of the child, as well as any other

consideration relevant to an application for benefits made by or on behalf of

the child.
