Calculation of transferred-in pensionable service

81.—(1) Subject to paragraph (3), the period of pensionable service that a member is entitled to count under article 80(2) shall be calculated as at the date on which the transfer value payment is received by the Board and in accordance with guidance and tables provided by the Scheme Actuary for the purpose.

(2) For the purposes of that calculation, the member’s pensionable earnings are to be taken to be the amount of those earnings as at—

(a)two months after the application under article 78 is received; or

(b)the date on which the transfer value payment is received,

whichever is the later; and, in a case where the transfer value payment is received earlier than two months after that application is received, any necessary adjustment shall be made to that calculation to reflect any change in the amount of those earnings.

(3) If the transfer payment is accepted under public sector transfer arrangements, the period that the member is entitled to count shall be calculated—

(a)subject to paragraph (4), in accordance with those arrangements; and

(b)by reference to the guidance and tables provided by the Scheme Actuary for the purposes of this paragraph, that are in use on the date that is used by the transferring scheme for calculating the transfer value payment.

(4) If the period that the member would be entitled to count would be greater if the transfer value payment were accepted otherwise than under public sector transfer arrangements—

(a)those arrangements shall not apply to the extent that they provide for the calculation of the period, and

(b)paragraph (1) shall apply instead.
