Interim payments directions

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

103.—(1) If—

(a)a person leaves an employment in which that person was a member of the Scheme because of an offence in connection with that employment; and

(b)a forfeiture certificate has been issued under regulation 102(1) (forfeiture of pension rights after conviction for employment-related offences) in respect of that offence,

the former employing authority may give an interim payments direction to the Committee.

(2) But that former employing authority may not give such a direction under paragraph (1) if it has given any direction under regulation 102(4) (“a forfeiture direction”).

(3) An interim payments direction is a direction to make interim payments to any person who appears to the former employing authority to be a person who would be entitled to receive payment of a benefit under the Scheme if no forfeiture direction were given.

(4) The person to whom payments shall be made, and the amounts, shall be specified in the direction.

(5) The amounts shall not exceed the amounts which the person specified would be entitled to be paid if no forfeiture direction were given.

(6) An interim payments direction is not a decision under regulation 80 (first instance decisions - general) as to any person’s entitlement to a benefit.

(7) Payments in accordance with an interim payments direction shall be deemed to be payments in respect of a benefit to which the recipient was entitled (regardless of any contrary forfeiture direction or decision under regulation 80).
