3.E.18—(1) Paragraph (2) applies for determining the lump sum payable by virtue of this regulation on the death of a member who–

(2) The lump sum is an amount equal to the sum of–

(a)5 times the annual rate of the pension–

(i)payable under regulation 3.D.7(5) (upper tier ill health pension), if the deceased had not reached the age of 65 on the date of death; and

(ii)payable under regulation 3.D.1 (normal retirement pensions), if the deceased had reached the age of 65 on the date of death,

to which the member would have been entitled on the date of death; and

(i)5 times the annual rate of the pension payable after exercising any option under regulation 3.D.10 (general option to exchange part of pension for lump sum), less the amount of the pension payments already made to the member; and

(ii)an amount equal to twice the annual average of the member’s uprated earnings at the date of death by reference to which the pension was calculated, less any lump sum paid to the member when the pension came into payment as a result of the member exercising the option under regulation 3.D.10 (general option to exchange part of pension for lump sum).
