Death grants

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

16.—(1) Death grants in the case of a member who did not accrue any membership of the Scheme are calculated under the earlier Schemes notwithstanding the revocations effected by regulation 2 (revocation of regulations).

(2) Subject to paragraph (3), death grants in the case of an active member who accrued any membership of the Scheme are calculated under regulation 40 (death grants: active members) of the 2014 Regulations regardless of whether the member had accrued any membership of the earlier Schemes (excluding membership deriving from a pension credit).

(3) In the case of an active member of the Scheme who is also a deferred member or a pensioner member of the earlier Schemes, if the amount of death grant that would have been payable if regulations 32 (death grants: deferred members) and 35 (death grants: pensioner members) of the Benefits Regulations, or the corresponding provision of any of the former regulations, still applied is higher than the amount that would be payable under paragraph (2), the death grant payable is that higher amount.

(4) Death grants in the case of a deferred member or pensioner member of the Scheme who has membership accrued before 1st April 2015 are calculated by adding together the death grant calculated under the earlier Schemes based on membership accrued before 1st April 2015, and the death grant calculated under the Scheme based on membership after 31st March 2015.
