Aggregate pension contributions for purposes of repayment

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

23.—(1) This paragraph applies for the purposes of calculating a payment under these Regulations by reference to the aggregate pension contributions of a police officer in respect of the relevant period of service.

(2) Where paragraph 1 applies, subject to paragraph (3), the relevant period of service shall be taken to—

(a)begin on the date on which the officer became a member of the police service or, if he has more than once been a member of the police service, the date on which he last joined the police service; and

(b)end on the date of the officer’s retirement, or otherwise ceasing to serve as a police officer or the death as the case may be, on which the award is payable.

(3) In the case of a police officer who has made an election under regulation 7, the relevant period of service shall be taken to be the period, or last period, during which pension contributions were continuously payable by him under regulation 5 since the date on which, had no such election been made, the relevant period of service would be taken to have begun.

(4) Where paragraph (1) applies, the aggregate pension contributions in respect of the relevant period of service shall be taken to be the sum of the following amounts—

(a)the aggregate of the pension contributions made in respect of that period by the person concerned to the Board including any payment made by that person under regulation 8(4)(c), or 8(6)(a)(iii) as the case may be, in respect of a period of unpaid maternity leave, unpaid parental leave or unpaid sick leave;

(b)the amount of any sums paid by the person concerned to the Board (including sums paid in pursuance of an undertaking) as a condition of being entitled to reckon pensionable service by reason of service before the said period.

(5) Where the person concerned has transferred to the police service, the amount referred to in paragraph (4) shall include any sum which, had he ceased to serve instead of transferring, would have been calculable under this paragraph as aggregate pension contributions at the time of transfer.

(6) Where the person concerned, while a member of the police service became entitled, in the circumstances mentioned in regulation 12(1), to reckon pensionable service by reason of a period of previous service or employment otherwise than as a police officer, the amount referred to in paragraph (4) shall include the amount of any award by way of return of contributions or of any analogous payment which would have been made to him at the end of that period of previous service or employment had he voluntarily ceased to serve or retired from employment in circumstances entitling him to such an award or payment under his former pension arrangements.

(a)Where the person concerned—

(i)previously retired with a pension on the ground of disablement under regulation 18;

(ii)that pension was terminated under regulation 49; and

(iii)he rejoined the police service,

the amount referred to in paragraph (3) shall include any sum which would have been calculable under paragraphs (3) to (6) as aggregate pension contributions at the time of the previous retirement; and

(b)all payments made by him to the police service in accordance with an election under regulation 53 (purchase of increased benefits).

(8) If the police officer is a pension debit member, the amount of his aggregate pension contributions under this regulation shall be reduced by such amount as is assessed in accordance with guidance issued by the Scheme actuary.
