Reduction of some surviving spouses' pensions

44.—(1) Where a male pensioner member or deferred member marries and dies, the pension to which his widow is entitled under regulation 42 or 43 is calculated as if his retirement pension were only so much of his actual pension as is attributable to the period of his membership in contracted-out employment after 5th April 1978.

(2) Except in the case of a short term pension payable to the widower of an active member, the pension to which a widower is entitled under regulation 42 or 43 is calculated as if the member’s retirement pension were only so much of her actual pension as is attributable to her membership after 5th April 1988.

(3) But relevant additional membership also counts as membership after 5th April 1988, where the widower was married to the member at some time while she was in local government employment after 31st March 1972.

(4) Relevant additional membership is membership –

(a)forming the enhanced element of a member’s total period of membership by virtue of a retirement to which regulation 30 applied after 5th April 1988;
