(3) The accrued amount for an accrual period for a person is—

where—

  • A is the accrued amount for the previous accrual period (or, in the case of the first accrual period beginning during the period of deferment, zero);

  • P is the amount of the Category A or Category B retirement pension to which the person would have been entitled for the accrual period if his entitlement had not been deferred;

  • R is—

    (a)

    a percentage rate 2 per cent. higher than the Bank of England base rate, or

    (b)

    such higher rate as may be prescribed in regulations under paragraph 7C(2).

(4) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (3), any change in the Bank of England base rate is to be treated as taking effect—

(a)at the beginning of the accrual period immediately following the accrual period during which the change took effect, or

(b)if regulations so provide, at such other time as may be prescribed.

(5) For the purposes of the calculation of the lump sum, the amount of Category A or Category B retirement pension to which the person would have been entitled for an accrual period—

(a)includes any increase under section 47(1) and any increase under paragraph 4 of this Schedule, but

(iii)in prescribed circumstances, such other amount of Category A or Category B retirement pension as may be prescribed.

(6) The reference in sub-paragraph (5)(a) to any increase under subsection (1) of section 47 shall be taken as a reference to any increase that would take place under that subsection if subsection (2) of that section and section 42(5) of the Pensions Act were disregarded..

(2) In relation to any accrual period (within the meaning of Schedule 5 to the Contributions and Benefits Act as amended by this paragraph) ending before 6th April 2010 the reference in paragraph 3B(5)(b) of that Schedule to section 83A of that Act is to be read as a reference to section 83 or 84 of that Act.
