(b)paragraph 3 of Schedule 9 to the 1992 regulations applied,

regulation D7(2) does not apply on his ceasing to hold any further employment.

(2) If regulation D7 did not apply on the person’s ceasing to hold a previous employment, but does apply on his ceasing to hold a further employment, paragraph 2(1) of Schedule D3 applies with the substitution for paragraphs (a) and (b) of the words “6 243/365 years”.

(a)by virtue of regulation D9, in a case where there was no entitlement under any previous regulation of Part D,

(b)by virtue of regulation D11, or

(c)by virtue of regulation E2(1)(c) or (e) of the 1992 regulations,

  • then—

    (i)

    (ii)

    otherwise, the amount of that death grant (as calculated in accordance with that Part) is reduced by the amount, if any, by which it exceeds the difference between the amount of those benefits and that remuneration.

(b)a person’s “relevant previous or additional pensionable remuneration” is the greater of—

(i)the aggregate obtained by taking for each previous pension the amount of the pensionable remuneration by reference to which it was calculated and the amount by which that amount would have been increased if it had been the rate of an official pension (within the meaning of the Pensions (Increase) Act (Northern Ireland) 1971) beginning on and payable from the day after the last day of the relevant previous employment, and
