“Relevant service” and “relevant membership period”

1.—(1) For the purposes of this Schedule—

(a)a member’s relevant service is so much of his contributing service and non-contributing service as did not consist of years added to his service—

(i)under regulation 43 of the 1981 regulations, or

(ii)the corresponding provisions of the former regulations,

(b)a member’s relevant membership period is the total of—

(i)any period of membership deriving from relevant service which became reckonable service by virtue of regulations 39 and 40(1)(a) of the 1981 regulations, and

(ii)any subsequent period of membership (other than a period excluded by sub-paragraph (2)),

(c)in sub-paragraph 1(b)(ii) “subsequent period of membership” does not include an additional period purchased by lump sum or additional contributions except, subject to sub-paragraph (d) below, the additional period was purchased on or after 1st November 1991 under regulation 11 of the Local Government (Superannuation) (Amendment No. 2) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1991(1) or regulation C7 of the 1992 regulations, and

(d)where the additional membership period to which a person is to be treated as being entitled would be a longer period if, in calculating a person’s relevant membership period, an additional period purchased under regulation 11 of the Local Government (Superannuation) (Amendment No. 2) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1991 or under regulation C7 of the 1992 regulations were to be disregarded instead of being taken into account, the additional period so purchased shall be disregarded.

(2) The subsequent period of membership mentioned in sub-paragraph (1)(b)(ii) does not include an additional period purchased by a lump sum or additional contributions unless—

(a)it was purchased on or after 1st November 1991 under regulation 46A of the 1981 regulations or under regulation C7 of the 1992 regulations as continued in effect by Schedule C5, and

(b)taking that period into account results in an increase in the additional period.
