Relief from liability to make scheme member contributions

This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

30(1)An MSP member is to stop making scheme member contributions from MSP salary when he or she obtains sufficient reckonable service as an MSP to entitle him or her to the maximum annual MSP pension permitted by rule 38(2).

(2)Such an MSP member is to begin making scheme member contributions again only if his or her MSP salary increases.

(3)Those contributions are to be made—

(a)only in respect of the amount by which the MSP salary is increased, and

(b)at the rate which applied when the MSP member stopped making scheme member contributions in respect of his or her full MSP salary.

(4)Scheme member contributions are not to be made from the office-holder salary of an office-holder member whose reckonable service as an office-holder already entitles him or her to the maximum office-holder pension entitlement permitted by rule 39(4).

(5)Such an office-holder member is to begin making scheme member contributions again only if his or her office-holder salary increases.

(6)Those contributions are to be made—

(a)only in respect of the amount by which the office-holder salary is increased, and

(b)at the rate which applied when the office-holder member stopped making scheme member contributions in respect of his or her full office-holder salary.

(7)If—

(a)the Fund trustees have accepted an individual’s application to buy added years, but

(b)the individual has not yet paid for those added years in full,

the individual’s reckonable service as an MSP or office-holder is to be treated for the purposes of this rule as including the period by which his or her reckonable service will be increased on payment of the last instalment or lump sum.
