Circumstances in which the modifications to the Act set out in regulation 65 apply

66.  The case referred to in regulation 65 is where, following the termination of an earner’s service in contracted-out employment by reference to a scheme the following conditions are satisfied—

(a)a transfer under section 16(1) of the Act, or regulations made thereunder, of the earner’s accrued rights to guaranteed minimum pensions under that scheme (in this regulation called the “transferring scheme”) to another contracted-out scheme (in this regulation called the “receiving scheme”) is made, or if already begun is completed, on or after 5th April 1983;

(b)the earner commences or has commenced employment which is contracted out by reference to the receiving scheme;

(c)by virtue of section 10(1) of the Act as modified by regulations made under section 16 of the Act, the calculation, under the provisions of the receiving scheme, of the earner’s guaranteed minimum pension for the purposes of section 10(2) of the Act falls to include earnings factors, or the weekly equivalent derived therefrom, arising out of contracted-out employment in any period of linked qualifying service which was contracted-out employment by reference to the transferring scheme, and

(d)either—

(i)the receiving scheme provides for the earnings factors or weekly equivalent derived therefrom to be increased at the rate by which they, or it, fell to be increased under the provisions of the transferring scheme or would have fallen to be increased under the provisions of that scheme relating to an earner whose service in contracted-out employment by reference to the scheme is terminated before he attains pensionable age;

(ii)if the provisions of the transferring scheme provided for those earnings factors to be increased by reference to orders under section 130 of the Administration Act, the receiving scheme provides for those earnings factors or the weekly equivalent derived therefrom to be increased in accordance with section 12(2) and (3) of the Act, or regulations made under section 12(3) of the Act;

(iii)if the transferring scheme provided for those earnings factors or the weekly equivalent derived therefrom to be increased in accordance with either section 12(2) and (3) of the Act or of regulations made under section 12(3) of the Act, the receiving scheme includes provision for those earnings factors to be increased by reference to orders under section 130 of the Administration Act from the date of termination of the earner’s service in the period of contracted-out employment from which those earnings factors arose, or

(iv)if a transfer of the earner’s accrued rights to the receiving scheme is not one to which sub-paragraph (d)(iii) applies and those rights were previously being increased at a rate calculated by reference to orders under section 130 of the Administration Act, the receiving scheme includes provision for those earnings factors or the weekly equivalent derived therefrom to be increased at a rate calculated otherwise than by reference to orders under section 130 of the Administration Act.
