G9.—(1) If a female member elected, before 1st July 1989, to buy an increased widower’s pension, the widower’s pension described in regulation G7 will be based on pensionable service from 6th April 1988 plus the period of pensionable service before that date that the member elected to buy for this purpose under regulation 20(2) of the 1980 Regulations(1) (widower’s pension).

(2) Subject to paragraph (3), any retirement lump sum payable to a member under regulation E13 in respect of any period of pensionable service that the member elected to buy as described in paragraph (1), will be reduced by 2/80ths of final year’s pensionable pay for each complete year of pensionable service before 25th March 1972, and by 1/80th of final year’s pensionable pay for each complete year of pensionable service after 24th March 1972 plus, in each case, the relevant daily proportion of that rate for each additional day.
