Payment by periodical contributions

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

56.—(1) Subject to the following provisions of this regulation, where a police officer elects to make payment under this regulation the periodical contributions—

(a)shall be made as from the date of his birthday falling within the year beginning with the date of his election, and

(b)shall continue, subject to any discontinuance on the ground of financial hardship in accordance with regulation 54(4) until the date—

(i)specified in the notice of election in accordance with regulation 53(3)(b);

(ii)on which any election made by him under regulation 7 takes effect;

(iii)on which he retires under regulation 15, 16 or 17, as the case may be, or otherwise ceases to serve as a police officer, or

(iv)subject to paragraph (7), on which he retires under regulation 18, whichever is the earliest.

(2) All contributions under this regulation shall be deducted by the Board from the pay of the officer concerned.

(3) Such contributions shall be of such amount, calculated by the Board in accordance with tables prepared by the Scheme actuary, as is necessary to purchase the added years specified in the notice of election.

(4) In a case where the police officer makes an election to pay by periodical contributions while he is in part-time service, either—

(a)payments payable by him shall be calculated as if he were in full-time service and his pensionable pay were the amount that would be his pensionable pay if he were in full-time service, or

(b)those payments are to be payable in accordance with paragraph (7).

(5) An officer who made an election under regulation 53(2) at a time when he was a full-time member of the police service and has subsequently begun to serve on a part-time basis may vary that election within the period of three months from the date on which he began to serve on a part-time basis.

(6) Variation of an election in accordance with paragraph (5) shall be made by giving written notice to the Board specifying that the police officer in part-time service concerned wishes the payments payable by him to be payable in accordance with paragraph (7) and takes effect on the date of that notice.

(7) Where a police officer who is in part-time service—

(a)makes an election under regulation 54(2), or

(b)varies such an election in accordance with paragraph (5) and (6),

specifying that the payments which are payable by him are to be payable in accordance with this paragraph, then the payments payable by him by periodical payments shall be payable at the same percentage of his pay as if he were in full-time service.

(8) In the case of a police officer who has retired with an entitlement to an ill-health pension but has subsequently rejoined the police service or joined a police force in Great Britain in accordance with regulation 48 his periodical contributions shall again become payable as provided by paragraph (1).

(9) A sum held in another pension scheme may not be used to purchase added years under this regulation.
