Election not to pay pension contributions

This section has no associated Executive Note

9.—(1) A regular police officer may at any time elect that regulation 7(1) shall not apply in that officer’s case by notice in writing given to the police authority.

(2) Subject to paragraph (3), the date on which an election under paragraph (1) takes effect shall be the date on which an instalment of pay next falls due to that officer after the receipt of notice under paragraph (1).

(3) In the case of a regular police officer who has given notice under paragraph (1) within 3 months of the date on which that officer last became such and to whom regulation 15 does not apply, that officer’s election under that paragraph shall be deemed to have taken effect on that date.

(4) In a case falling within paragraph (3), the police authority shall subject to regulation 35, pay to the regular police officer in question a sum equal to the sum of the pension contributions paid by that officer since the date on which the election is deemed to have taken effect.

(5) A regular police officer who has made an election under paragraph (1) may cancel such election by notice in writing given to the police authority and the election shall cease to have effect as from the date on which an instalment of pay next falls due to that officer after the receipt of such notice :

Provided that–

(a)a regular police officer having cancelled that officer’s election under paragraph (1) and subsequently made a further election under paragraph (1) shall not be entitled to cancel the further election during the same period of service as a regular police officer;

(b)a regular police officer shall not, if the police authority so resolve, be entitled to cancel that officer’s election under paragraph (1) unless that officer has undergone a medical examination in accordance with regulation 8 (and any fee payable in respect of such an examination and a report thereon shall be paid by the regular police officer concerned);

(c)a regular police officer in respect of whom it is determined, following such a medical examination, that the likely cost of providing that officer with benefits under these Regulations is disproportionately high, shall (subject to any appeal under regulation 8(4)) be entitled to cancel that officer’s election under paragraph (1) only subject to the condition that that officer shall not be eligible to receive pension awards payable on the ground of permanent disablement; and

(d)a regular police officer who was ineligible to receive pension awards payable on the ground of permanent disablement under regulation 8 on the date of the officer’s election under paragraph (1) shall upon cancellation of that election be ineligible to receive pension awards payable on the ground of permanent disablement
