Increased surviving civil partner’s pension

This section has no associated Executive Note

G13.—(1) If a member, who has formed a civil partnership, elects before 28th February 2007 to buy an increased surviving civil partner’s pension pursuant to regulation G12(1), the surviving civil partner’s pension described in regulation G10 (surviving civil partner’s pension) will be based on pensionable service after 5th April 1988 plus the period of pensionable service before that date that the member elected to buy for this purpose under regulation G12(1).

(2) Subject to paragraph (3) any retirement lump sum payable to a member under regulation E12 (lump sum on retirement), in respect of any period of pensionable service that the member elected to buy as described in paragraph (1), will be reduced by 1.4 times the yearly rate of the member’s pension plus the relevant daily portion of that rate for each additional day (except to the extent that any lump sum reduction has been set off under regulation Q2 (right to buy an unreduced retirement lump sum)).

(3) Where regulation E2(10), regulation E3(10) or regulation E12(10) applies to a member who has formed a civil partnership, any reference in those regulations to a lump sum payable on retirement means, in relation to a member whom paragraph (2) of this regulation refers, a lump sum which is not reduced as described in that paragraph.

(4) Subject to paragraph (5), where by virtue of an election under regulation G12(1), the amount of the retirement lump sum would fall to be reduced by 1.4 times the yearly rate of the member’s pension plus the relevant daily proportion of that rate for each additional day, the member may, prior to 28th February 2007, make an election to purchase an unreduced lump sum under regulation Q2 (right to buy an unreduced retirement lump sum).

(5) A member who has purchased additional service in accordance with regulation Q1 (right to buy additional service) by way of a payment under regulation Q6 (paying for additional service or an unreduced retirement lump sum by regular additional contributions) may not make an election under paragraph (4) in respect of the purchase of an unreduced lump sum.

(6) If a member who has made an election under this regulation—

(a)is in pensionable employment on 1st April 2008, or returns to such employment after that date; and

(b)dies without leaving a civil partner but leaving a surviving widower or, as the case may be, a surviving nominated partner,

the surviving civil partner’s pension described in paragraph (1) will be paid to that surviving widower, or as the case may be, that surviving nominated partner.
