  • C3.  Subject to regulations C5 to C7 and C26, a member shall, at such intervals as the Committee may determine, make contributions in respect of every employment in relation to which he is a member—

    (a)

    in the case of a manual worker, at the rate of five per cent. of his remuneration in the employment, and

    (b)

    in the case of an officer, at the rate of six per cent. of that remuneration.

Contributions payable for previous part-time employment

C4.  (1)  This regulation applies to—

(a)a person employed on contractual hours of less than 15 hours per week or contractual weeks of under 35 weeks per year who becomes a member on the commencement date; and

(b)an existing member of the Scheme at the commencement date who before joining the Scheme worked for a LGPS employer for less than 15 hours per week.

(2) A person to whom paragraph (1) applies may elect by notice in writing to the Committee within six months of the commencement date (or such longer period as the Committee may allow) that his period of membership shall if he makes the appropriate payment to the fund have effect from a date, as specified in the notice, earlier than the commencement date but not earlier than 1st January 1993.

(3) The “appropriate payment” for the purposes of paragraph (2) is a payment equal to the contributions which the person would have been required to make under regulation C3 if he had throughout the period from the date specified in the notice to the earlier of the date immediately before the commencement date, or the date immediately before his membership commenced, been a pensionable employee.

(4) The payment under paragraph (2) is to be made, unless the Committee allows a longer period, within six months of the date on which the person is notified by the Committee of its amount.

(5) A member who becomes a member on the commencement date who has made a payment under paragraph (2) is entitled to count as a period of membership the period for which the payment was made.

(6) The employer or former employer will pay employer’s contributions at rates commensurate with the members' contributions for the appropriate period.
