7.—(1) For the purposes of paragraph 6 in relation to any additional contribution falling to be paid by an employee his remuneration for the time being is, subject to sub-paragraph (2), the remuneration received by him for the interval (being an interval determined under paragraph 9) at the end of which the additional contribution falls to be paid.

(2) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (1)—

(a)an employee is to be taken to have received for any period for which, while a contract of employment subsisted, he was absent from duty with reduced remuneration or without remuneration, otherwise than by reason of illness or injury, the remuneration that he would have received but for his absence from duty; and

(b)any reduction in remuneration by reason of the actual or assumed enjoyment by the employee during any period of absence from duty of any statutory entitlement shall be disregarded.

8.  An employee is to specify in his notice of election the birthday (“the specified birthday”) up to which additional contributions are to be paid, which may be—

(a)his 65th birthday; or

(b)any earlier birthday falling on or after the date on which he would attain pensionable age.

9.  Additional contributions are to be paid, at such intervals as the Committee may determine, from the employee’s birthday next following the date of the election.

PART IVUNCOMPLETED PAYMENTS

10.  This Part applies where an employee has under regulation C9 elected to make payment by instalments or by way of additional contributions and has commenced payment, but before, as the case may be—

(a)the date specified under paragraph 4; or

(b)the birthday specified under paragraph 8,

a relevant event occurs.

11.  The relevant events are—

(a)the discontinuance of payment under regulation C9(11); and

(b)where there has been no such discontinuance of payment—

(i)the employee’s ceasing to hold his employment; and

(ii)the death of the employee while in local government employment.

12.  Where the relevant event is the discontinuance of payment under regulation C9(11), the period of reckonable service in respect of which the election was made is to be treated as having been—

where—

  • A is the length of the period during which instalments or additional contributions have been paid;

  • B is the length of the period of reckonable service in respect of which the election was made; and

  • C is the length of the period during which, under Part II or Part III, instalments or additional contributions were to have been paid,

  • each period being expressed in complete years and any fraction of a year.

13.  Where the relevant event is—

(a)the death of the employee; or

(b)his ceasing to hold his employment by reason of permanent ill-health or infirmity of mind or body,

he is to be treated as having completed payment in accordance with Part II or, as the case may be, Part III.

14.—(1) Where the relevant event is the employee’s ceasing to hold his employment and—

(a)condition (a) or (b) in regulation E2(3) is satisfied; and

(b)the last day of his employment is not less than 12 months after the date of receipt of his notice of election under regulation C9; and

(c)he gives notice in writing for the purpose to the Committee within the period of 3 months beginning on the day after the last day of his employment,

he may pay to the fund within the period specified in sub-paragraph (2) an amount calculated by the fund’s actuary to represent the capital value of the instalments or additional contributions remaining to be paid, and shall in that event be treated as having completed payment in accordance with Part II or, as the case may be, Part III.

(2) The period for making a payment under sub-paragraph (1) is the period of one month beginning on the date on which the person is notified by the Committee of the amount calculated as mentioned in that sub-paragraph.

(3) The Committee may accept a notice given under sub-paragraph (1)(c) notwithstanding that sub-paragraph (1)(b) is not satisfied.

15.—(1) Where the relevant event is the employee’s ceasing to hold his employment and neither paragraph 13(b) or paragraph 14 applies, he is, unless sub-paragraph (2) applies, to be treated as if paragraph 12 (discontinuance of payment) had applied.

(2) This sub-paragraph applies where the employee—

(a)elected under regulation C9 to make payment by way of additional contributions; and

(b)has within 12 months after ceasing to hold his employment again entered local government employment, without having—

(i)become entitled in relation to the first employment to the payment of any benefit; or

(ii)elected to receive a payment under regulation C15(6) (return of contributions); or

(iii)made a request for earlier payment under regulation C15(11); and

(c)has not made an election for the purposes of regulation E2(8)(c) (retention of right to preserved benefits); and

(d)within 3 months after his again entering local government employment pays to his new employing authority an amount equal to any additional contributions that would have been payable if he had not ceased to hold the first employment.

(3) Where sub-paragraph (2) applies, the election under regulation C9 continues to have effect as if the relevant event had not occurred.

Regulation C11

SCHEDULE 6Further Additional Contributions

1.—(1) An election to pay contributions under regulation C11 shall be made by notice given in writing to the pensionable employee’s employing authority, and shall specify—

(a)the amount of the additional contributions which are to be paid, expressed either as a percentage of his remuneration or as a sum payable at the times mentioned in sub-paragraph (2); and

(b)the proportion (if any) of the contributions which he wishes to be used to provide benefits payable in the event of death.

(2) The additional contributions shall be payable on the pensionable employee’s usual pay day, and for that purpose shall be deductible by the employing authority, or be otherwise recoverable by the Committee, under regulation C14.

2.  With respect to any election under paragraph 1—

(a)the Committee may require, before any contributions are first made pursuant to the notice given under paragraph 1(1), that (until discontinued) the amount of the additional contributions payable in any tax year shall be not less than the amount specified in regulation 2(8) of the Pension Schemes (Voluntary Contributions Requirements and Voluntary and Compulsory Membership) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987(37);

(b)the amount of the additional contributions payable in any tax year shall, when aggregated with the amount of any other contributions payable under these regulations, not exceed the amount allowed to be deducted under section 592(7) and (8) of the Act of 1988;

(c)subject to paragraphs (a) and (b), the pensionable employee may at any time elect by notice given in writing to his employing authority to vary his additional contributions (both as to the amount and as to the proportion of those he is to continue to pay which are to be used to provide benefits payable on death) or to discontinue those contributions; and

(d)no additional contributions shall be payable with respect to periods during which the person contributing is not a pensionable employee under these regulations, or (subject to paragraph 6) with respect to any period after he ceases to be employed by the employing authority to which notice was given under paragraph 1(1).

3.—(1) Where a notice under paragraphs 1(1) or 2(c) specifies that all or part of the additional contributions are to be used to provide benefits payable in the event of death, the Committee shall make arrangements, for the provision of those benefits under a pension policy with respect to which the Committee are to make payments to the insurance company with which the policy is entered into of the same amounts as the contributions to be so used within one month of the day on which they are payable by the pensionable employee under paragraph 1(2).

(2) The policy shall make provision for the matters mentioned in paragraph 2, and for the arrangements mentioned in paragraph 6 in the event of a change of employment by the pensionable employee.

4.—(1) The Committee shall invest any additional contributions which are not to be used to provide benefits payable in the event of death with a relevant body.

(2) Subject to sub-paragraph (3) and paragraph 6, upon the pensionable employee ceasing to be employed by the employing authority to which notice was given under paragraph 1(1), the Committee shall as soon as reasonably practicable apply the accumulated amount of the contributions invested as mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) to the provision of additional pension benefits under a pension policy.

(3) If the pensionable employee dies before such a policy is entered into the accumulated amount shall be payable to his personal representatives.

5.—(1) As soon as an employing authority receive a notice under paragraph 1(1) or 2(c) they shall forward it to the Committee.

(2) The Committee shall give effect to a notice under paragraph 1(1) or 2(c) as soon as reasonably practicable, and in any event—

(b)in the case of a notice under paragraph 2(c), so that the pensionable employee may pay his contributions at the varied amount or proportions, or cease to pay his contributions (as the case may be), within 3 months of him giving that notice.

(3) The benefits under a pension policy entered into under paragraph 3(1) or 4(2) shall be money purchase benefits the value of which is reasonable having regard to the amount of the contributions paid and which (subject to that) are of a similar class as the benefits which are payable under Part E and payable in similar circumstances to those in which such benefits are payable, save that there need be no requirement in the policy that the pensionable employee should be able to reckon any particular length of reckonable or qualifying service in order for the benefits to be payable.

(4) Before entering into such a policy, the Committee shall consult the pensionable employee and shall give effect, so far as is practicable and subject to sub-paragraph (3), to his wishes with respect to the benefits to be provided under it.

(2) In the event of an election under sub-paragraph (1)—

(a)as soon as the new employing authority receive the notice of election they shall forward it to the Committee in relation to the new employment;

(b)no payment of additional contributions shall be made with respect to the period (if any) between the two employments, but subject to that the pensionable employee shall, with effect from the pay day next after the day notice was given under sub-paragraph (1), make payments of additional contributions in his new employment under his notice under paragraph 1(1) as from time to time varied (or subsequently discontinued) under paragraph 2(c);

(c)the Committee shall continue to invest all additional contributions paid by him not specified to be used to provide benefits payable in the event of death in the manner mentioned in paragraph 4(1) and apply any continuing additional contributions which are so specified towards the pension policy mentioned in paragraph 3(1); and

(d)paragraphs 4(2) and 6 shall have effect in relation to a cessation of the new employment as if the new employment were the one in relation to which notice was given under paragraph 1(1).

7.  Paragraph 2(d) shall not preclude a pensionable employee who has again become employed by a scheduled body (and has not elected under paragraph 6(1)) making a fresh election by notice under paragraph 1(2) in relation to his new employment.

8.—(1) If the benefits payable to a person in consequence of the payment of contributions under regulation C11, when aggregated with the other benefits payable to him under these regulations, exceed the maximum benefits payable if the occupational pension scheme or schemes represented by these regulations were to expect to continue to qualify as exempt approved schemes for the purposes of Chapter I of Part XIV of the Act of 1988, the benefits payable under Part E shall be reduced so far as is necessary to secure that those maximum benefits are not exceeded.

(2) Before reducing any benefits under sub-paragraph (1), the Committee shall consult the Commissioners of Inland Revenue.

9.—(1) Regulations C15 to C17 (return of contributions) and P2 (management of the fund) do not apply to contributions payable under (or interest on late payments which relate to contributions under) regulation C11.

(2) The making of contributions under regulation C11, and any rights or liabilities arising under a pension policy entered into under paragraphs 3(1) or 4(2), shall be left out of account in calculating the amount of a transfer value payable under Part J and Parts M (forfeiture etc.) and N (decisions and appeals) do not apply in relation to benefits under such a policy.

whichever would have occurred first.

3.—(1) This paragraph applies where before entering the employment which he has ceased to hold the person had, on ceasing to hold a previous employment, become entitled to benefits under regulation E2(1)(b)(i) or under regulation 9(1)(a)(i) of the 1962 regulations.

(2) Where this paragraph applies, the additional period shall be (A − B) or zero, whichever is the greater, where—

3.  Upon a person’s first becoming eligible to notify his wish to surrender part of his retirement pension the employing authority shall send him a notice stating that provision has been made by these regulations for the surrender of part of a retirement pension to a spouse or dependant and informing the person to whom the notice is addressed that he may on application to the authority obtain further information on the subject.

4.  Where a person wishes to make a surrender he may—

(a)in the case of a pensionable employee who on ceasing to hold his employment becomes entitled to a retirement pension (in this Schedule referred to as “a retiring employee”) not more than 2 months before or within one month after the date on which he ceases to be employed; and

(b)in the case of a pensionable employee who would, if he were to retire from his employment, become entitled to a retirement pension (in this Schedule referred to as “a continuing employee”), within 2 months before or at any time after becoming a continuing employee and while he is still employed,

notify his desire to surrender a part of that retirement pension by completing the form provided for the purpose, and sending it, together with a copy thereof, to the employing authority, and they shall transmit the original to the Committee.

Provided that where the Committee are satisfied that it has not been reasonably practicable for a retiring employee to notify his desire to surrender a part of a retirement pension within the time limit imposed by sub-paragraph (a) owing to circumstances beyond his control, they may at their discretion extend that limit to a date not more than 6 months after the date on which he ceases to be employed.

5.  On receipt by the Committee of a notification given by a person under paragraph 4 the Committee shall—

(a)forthwith arrange for the person to be examined by a registered medical practitioner nominated by them and for a report to be given to them by the practitioner stating whether, in his opinion, the person is in good health, regard being had to his age; and if the opinion stated in such report is that the person is not in good health, the Committee shall notify him accordingly and offer him an opportunity of a further examination by some other registered medical practitioner nominated by them with a view to that practitioner reporting to them on the state of the person’s health;

6.  Any fee payable to a practitioner in respect of an examination and report under paragraph 5 shall be paid by the person examined at the time of the examination.

7.—(1) Subject to the provisions of this Schedule, unless the Committee are of opinion, on consideration of a report obtained by them under paragraph 5, that the person to whom the report relates is not in good health or they are of opinion that the evidence produced in regard to marriage or dependency is not satisfactory, they shall allow the surrender of such part of the retirement pension as is specified in the person’s notification and as is in conformity with this Schedule and shall grant to the beneficiary named in the notification a pension, payable in the event of the beneficiary’s surviving the person and to be calculated in accordance with regulation E17(4).

Provided that a decision by the Committee to allow a surrender by a retiring employee shall not be made before the date on which he ceases to be employed and a decision by the Committee to allow a surrender by a continuing employee shall not be made before the date on which he becomes such an employee.

(2) Notwithstanding anything in sub-paragraph (1), the Committee shall, if they are dissatisfied with the evidence of marriage, but are nevertheless satisfied on the evidence already before them or, after making such further enquiries as they think necessary, that a person named as spouse in the notification given under paragraph 4 is a dependant of the person who gave the notification, treat the notification as if the person named therein as spouse has been named as a dependant of the person giving the notification.

(3) As soon as is reasonably practicable after coming to a decision in regard to a notification given by a person, the Committee shall notify him that they have allowed a surrender in favour of the person named in his notification or that they have decided not to allow a surrender of any part of the retirement pension, as the case may be, and if the Committee have allowed a surrender they shall also furnish him with a statement as to the amount of the pension to which the beneficiary may become entitled after his death and, if the person who gave the notification under paragraph 4 is a retiring employee, with a statement as to the amount of the reduced retirement pension to which he is entitled.

(4) A notification of a decision not to allow a surrender shall state the grounds for the decision.

(5) A notification sent to an employee in pursuance of sub-paragraph (3) shall, if it has been posted in a prepaid envelope addressed to the employee by the Committee, be deemed to have been received by the employee at the time at which a letter would be delivered in the ordinary course of post.

8.  A person who has given a notification of his desire to surrender a part of his retirement pension under paragraph 4 may cancel or amend the notification by a notice in writing addressed to the employing authority at any time before he has received notification from the Committee that his surrender has been allowed.

9.—(1) A notification given by a person under paragraph 4 shall become null and void if—

(a)the beneficiary dies before the person receives notification from the Committee that his surrender has been allowed; or

(b)the person dies at any time before midnight on the day on which the Committee decide to allow the surrender.

(2) Subject as aforesaid, a surrender allowed in pursuance of a notification given by a person shall have effect as from the date on which the person ceases to hold his employment.

2.—(1) The sums in respect of accrued pension, accrued retiring allowance and accrued modification shall be calculated by multiplying the accrued pension by the pension factor, the accrued retiring allowance by the retiring allowance factor and the accrued modification by the modification factor, such factors being the factors in the appropriate Table in Part II where regulation J14 applies and Part III where regulation J2 or J3(1) applies which are applicable to the person’s age when he ceased to be employed in his local government employment.

(2) The sum in respect of accrued widow’s pension shall be calculated by multiplying the accrued widow’s pension by 2.4 where regulation J14 applies and by 4 where regulation J2 or J3(1) applies.

(3) The sum in respect of the pensions increase liability on a person’s guaranteed minimum pension shall be calculated by multiplying the annual equivalent of his guaranteed minimum in relation to his retirement pension in connection with his local government employment by the pensions increase liability factor in the appropriate Table in Part IV which is applicable in relation to his age when he ceased to be employed in local government employment.

Regulations J4(2) and J8(5)

PART V

The additional transfer value payable under regulation J3(2) and the transfer value that may be accepted where regulation J8(5) applies is in each case

where—

  • A is the period—

    (a)

    which the person would have been entitled to reckon as reckonable service by virtue of regulation F6(1)(a); or

    (b)

    which would have been taken into account in calculating additional benefits in accordance with regulation F6(12); or

    (c)

    which he would have been entitled to reckon under the war service provisions of the public service scheme,

    as the case may be;

  • B is the figure in column (2) or (3) of the Table appropriate to the person’s age on 1st April 1978 and sex;

  • C is either—

    (a)

    the annual rate of the person’s remuneration at 1st April 1978, ascertained in accordance with the following:

    (i)

    the annual rate of any fluctuating element of his remuneration is to be estimated by reference to an average taken over a representative period;

    (ii)

    the annual rate of any benefit in kind included in his remuneration is to be the estimated annual value of the benefit in kind at the date on which he ceased to be employed;

    (iii)

    if at that date he had no remuneration or his remuneration was reduced because of absence from duty, the annual rate is to be taken to be the annual rate which would have applied if he had not been absent;

    (iv)

    if the annual rate of his remuneration is retrospectively altered as a result of a pay award promulgated by a national joint council or other negotiating body on or before the date on which he ceased to be employed, the annual rate of his remuneration is to be based on the retrospective pay award;

    (v)

    if his remuneration is not calculated by reference to an annual rate but by reference to some other rate, the annual rate is to be derived from the applicable rate at the date on which he ceased to be employed;

    (vi)

    if his previous local government employment was part-time, the annual rate of remuneration of a single comparable whole-time employment is to be used; and

    (vii)

    if the annual rate of his remuneration exceeds £100 it is to be rounded down to the nearest £100; or

    (b)

    if on that date he was entitled to a pension, the amount used as a multiplier in respect of remuneration in calculating the pension, increased by the annual amount (if any) by which an annual pension at a rate equal to that amount of remuneration, and beginning on the same date as the person’s pension, would by 1st April 1978 have been increased under the Pensions (Increase) Act (Northern Ireland) 1971(64); and

  • D is compound interest on (A × B × C), calculated, in the case of an additional transfer value payable under regulation J3(2), in accordance with regulation J7, in respect of the period beginning on 1st April 1978 and ending with the date on which the transfer value or additional transfer value is paid.

Regulation J9(1)(a)

SCHEDULE 17Calculation of reckonable service to be credited under regulation J9(1)(a)

1.  Subject to the provisions of this Schedule the period which a person is entitled to reckon as reckonable service by virtue of regulation J9(1)(a) is a period equal to the period of reckonable service which would enable the Committee to pay under regulation J2 a transfer value (calculated in accordance with Schedule 16)—

(a)of the amount which the Committee accepted in respect of him under regulation J8; or

(b)where—

(i)the person became employed in his local government employment after 4th April 1983; and

(ii)a limited revaluation premium was paid under Article 47 of the Pensions Order and has been repaid to the Committee by the Department of Health and Social Services,

of the total of the amount mentioned in sub-paragraph (a) and the amount of the premium.

2.  For the purposes of paragraph 1—

(1) in the case of a person who was subject in his non-local government employment to a statutory scheme or to any other scheme which is for the time being treated by the Department as a statutory scheme for the purposes of this Schedule—

(a)the calculation of the period he is entitled to reckon as reckonable service is to be made by reference to his age, and to the rate of his pensionable pay, used in the calculation of the transfer value accepted;

(b)where in that calculation an amount of a person’s pay has been disregarded in connection with a retirement pension under section 28 of the Act of 1975 or corresponding provisions of earlier legislation, the pensionable pay is to be increased by that amount; and

(c)any sum representing interest included in the transfer value accepted is to be ignored;

(2) in the case of a person who was subject in his non-local government employment to any other scheme—

(a)if he became employed in his local government employment before22nd April 1975—

(i)the calculation of the period he is entitled to reckon as reckonable service is to be made by reference to his age, and the annual rate of his remuneration, on 1st April 1972, or, if later, on the date when he became employed in his local government employment (here referred to as the “relevant date”); and

(ii)the sum to be used as the amount of the transfer value shall be the sum notified to the Committee by the scheme managers as the sum which the Committee would have received in respect of the person had the transfer value been calculated and paid on the relevant date;

(b)if he became employed in his local government employment on or after 22nd April 1975, the calculation of the period he is entitled to reckon as reckonable service is to be made by reference to his age, and the annual rate of his remuneration, on the date when he became employed in his local government employment, if the transfer value in respect of him is received by the Committee more than one year after he became employed in his local government employment, on the date on which the transfer value is received;

(c)any sum representing interest which is included in the transfer value accepted is to be taken into account;

(3) the accrued pension in respect of the period last mentioned in paragraph 1 shall be deemed—

(a)where the person is such a person as is mentioned in regulation J11, to be subject to that regulation, and paragraph (2) of that regulation shall have effect for this purpose as if at the end there were added the words—

; and

(c)at the end of regulation 53(2)(e) of the 1981 regulations, there had been added the words “and a proportionate amount in respect of part of a year of such service”;;

(b)where the person is such a person as is mentioned in regulation J12, to be subject to that regulation;

(4) where—

(a)the pensionable pay mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) relates to a period of part-time employment, the pensionable pay for that period shall be deemed to be the pensionable pay by reference to which the transfer value accepted would have been calculated had the person during that period been in a single comparable whole-time employment;

(b)the remuneration mentioned in sub-paragraph (2) relates to part-time employment, the annual rate of remuneration on the relevant date shall be deemed to be the annual rate of remuneration notified to the Committee by his local government employer as the remuneration which would have been paid in respect of a single comparable whole-time employment;

(5) in applying Schedule 16 in accordance with paragraph 1 of this Schedule in relation to a person who ceased to be employed in his non-local government employment on or after 6th April 1978 and whose non-local government employment was not contracted-out employment for the purposes of the Pensions Order, paragraphs 1(1)(c), 2(3) and (4) of Schedule 16 shall be ignored.

Regulation J14

SCHEDULE 18Fund apportionment where 100 or more transfer their pension rights under regulation J14

PART I

1.  This Part applies if the fund is to be apportioned under regulation J14(6) and all of the transfers under the transfer scheme are to take place on the same day.

2.  The Committee shall obtain a report from the fund’s actuary specifying the apportionment fraction to be applied in apportioning the fund together with details of the calculation.

3.  The apportionment fraction is—

where—

  • A is the value at the relevant date of the accrued actuarial liabilities of the fund which relate to the persons transferring their pension rights on that date to the approved non-local government scheme;

  • B is the value at the relevant date of all accrued actuarial liabilities of the fund;

  • C is the value at the relevant date of the transferable assets of the fund minus any sums then due from the fund;

  • D is the value at the relevant date of any adjustments to be made in consequence of a certificate under regulation P6(1)(b) to sums (other than sums then due to the fund) to be contributed to the fund under regulation P7(1); and

  • E is the value at the relevant date of the part (if any) of those adjustments which relates to the persons transferring their pension rights on that date to the approved non-local government scheme.

4.  The relevant date is the date on which those transferring their pension rights become subject to the approved non-local government scheme.

5.  The accrued actuarial liabilities of the fund are the actual and potential liabilities of the fund in connection with any service or employment before the relevant date and, for this purpose, it is to be assumed that the liabilities which relate to those transferring their pension rights remain liabilities of the fund notwithstanding regulation J14(8).

6.  The transferable assets of the fund are the assets which belong to the fund at the relevant date.

7.  The values of items D and E are to be agreed by the fund’s actuary and the actuary of the non-local government scheme or, if they are unable to agree, they are to be determined by an actuary appointed by the Department.

8.  Subject to paragraph 7, valuations are to be made by the fund’s actuary.

9.  Where more than one approved non-local government scheme is involved, separate apportionment fractions shall be specified in the actuary’s report for the different schemes.

10.  When the Committee receive the actuary’s report they shall provide the scheme managers of the approved non-local government scheme with a copy of it.

11.  The value of the share of the fund to which the scheme managers of the approved non-local government scheme are entitled shall be calculated in accordance with the formula—

where—

  • V is the value of the share of the fund to which the scheme managers are entitled;

  • W is the apportionment fraction specified in the actuary’s report;

  • X is the value (determined by the fund’s actuary) at the apportionment date of the transferable assets which still belong to the fund at that date and any other assets which belong to the fund at that date which represent in any form or have accrued from any transferable asset;

  • Y is the total of any sums due from the fund at the relevant date and still outstanding at the apportionment date; and

  • Z is the total of any sums due from the fund at the apportionment date (but not at the relevant date) in respect of any expenditure in connection with the transferable assets of the fund or assets representing or accruing from those assets.

12.  The apportionment date is the date specified as such by the Committee in a notice given to the scheme managers of the approved non-local government scheme.

13.  Except with the agreement of the scheme managers of the approved non-local government scheme, the apportionment date shall not be later than 6 months after the date on which the Committee receive the actuary’s report.

14.  Subject to paragraphs 15 to 17, immediately after the apportionment date the Committee shall transfer to the scheme managers of the approved non-local government scheme assets of the fund of a value at the apportionment date equal to the value of the scheme managers' share of the fund and unless the Committee and the scheme managers otherwise agree, the composition of the assets to be transferred shall so far as possible reflect the composition of the transferable assets which still belong to the fund at the apportionment date and any other assets which belong to the fund at that date which represent in any form or have accrued from any transferable asset.

15.  The Committee and the scheme managers may agree to transfer assets in advance of the apportionment date.

16.  The value of an advance under paragraph 15 shall not exceed such sum as the fund’s actuary may specify as appropriate in the circumstances.

17.  Where an advance is made under paragraph 15, the Committee’s liability under paragraphs 11 and 14 shall be reduced by an amount equal to—

where—

  • L is the value of the advance;

  • M is the value of the share of the fund to which the scheme managers would have been entitled under paragraph 11 if the apportionment date had been the date on which the advance was made; and

  • N is the value of the share of the fund to which the scheme managers would have been entitled under paragraph 11 if the advance had not been made.

18.  The employing authority shall bear the costs of apportioning the fund or, if there is more than one employing authority involved, each shall bear such part of those costs as the fund’s actuary determines.

19.  The Committee shall keep their accounts in a form which enables the calculations required in apportioning the fund to be made, and they shall also provide the fund’s actuary with any information he requires in connection with the apportionment.

PART II

20.  This Part applies where the fund is to be apportioned under regulation J14(6) and the transfers under the transfer scheme are to take place on different days.

21.  The provisions of Part I are to apply to the apportionment as if the transfer had occurred on a single date, but suitable adjustments are to be made to the sums payable to the scheme managers to reflect the fact that the transfers take place on different dates.

22.  If any question arises in connection with paragraph 21, it shall be determined by the fund’s actuary and the actuary of the approved non-local government scheme, or if they are unable to agree, by an actuary appointed by the Department.
