Calculation of ordinary pension

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

25.—(1) A police officer’s ordinary pension shall be—

(a)an annual sum payable for life calculated by multiplying an amount equal to one seventieth of his final pensionable pay by the number of years of pensionable service he is entitled to reckon; and

(b)a lump-sum payment calculated by multiplying an amount equal to four seventieths of his final pensionable pay by the number of years of pensionable service he is entitled to reckon.

(a)A lump-sum under paragraph (1)(b) shall be reduced where the officer rejoins the police service having previously received a lump-sum payment by reason of—

(i)entitlement to a pension under regulation 26 (ill-health pension); or

(ii)receipt of early payment of deferred pension on the ground of permanent disablement under regulation 29,

(where that pension has been terminated under regulation 48).

(b)Where sub-paragraph (a) applies the lump-sum shall be reduced by an amount equal to the amount of the previous lump-sum payment increased by the same amount as that by which an annual pension of an amount equal to that previous lump-sum would have been increased under the Pensions (Increase) Act (Northern Ireland) 1971(1) by the date on which the award comes into payment, if the said annual pension had come into payment on the day on which the previous lump-sum payment was made.

(c)Where a police officer has rejoined the police service more than once having previously received on more than one occasion a lump-sum payment by reason of entitlement to an ill-health pension under regulation 26 or to early payment of a deferred pension on the ground of permanent disablement under regulation 29 (where each pension has been terminated under regulation 48) the lump sum payment payable to the officer under paragraph (1)(b) shall be reduced in accordance with the paragraph (2) with references to a previous lump-sum payment being construed as references to the officer’s most recent lump-sum payment, and of the amount it would have been if he had not prior to that received any lump-sum payment.
