Paragraph 10: Payment of pensions due on new rules day etc.
512.As a consequence of article A3 of the 1999 pensions order, the 1999 scheme rules would cease to have effect when provision is made under section 81(3) of the 1998 Act. The rules in the Act (the new scheme rules) are made in accordance with section 81(3) and will supersede those of the 1999 pensions order, save to the extent that the rules of the 1999 pensions order are saved by the Act.
513.Paragraph 10 specifies that the pension of any scheme pensioner under the 1999 pensions order continues to be governed by that order and not the provisions in the new rules set out in the Act. The provision preserves the entitlement expectations and pensions of existing pensioner members, albeit the SPCB’s pension functions including payment obligations are transferred to the new Fund trustees.
