Effect of payment of additional contributions under this Part

This section has no associated Executive Note

Q14.—(1) This regulation applies if—

(a)an option is exercised by a member under regulation Q8 and all the contributions to be made under the option are made; or

(b)an option is exercised by a member under regulation Q10 or by a member’s employing authority under regulation Q11 and the lump sum payment is made.

(2) Subject to paragraph (7) the member’s pension is increased by the full amount of the increase to be made in accordance with the terms of the option after the final adjustment in that amount in accordance with regulation Q17.

(3) Paragraph (2) is without prejudice to any reduction falling to be made in accordance with regulation Q15(5) as a result of the member becoming entitled to payment of a pension before his chosen birthday.

(4) In the case of an option under regulation Q8(1)(b), Q10(1)(b) or Q11(1)(b), any benefit payable to a surviving partner or a dependent child in respect of the member under these Regulations is increased by the appropriate amount.

(5) In paragraph (4), subject to regulations Q15 and Q16(3), “the appropriate amount” means—

(a)in the case of a surviving partner pension payable under regulation G2 (widow’s pension when member dies in pensionable employment), G4 (widow’s pension when member dies with preserved pension) or S6(12) (benefits on death in pensionable employment after pension under regulation E3 becomes payable), 37.5% of the amount of the increase mentioned in paragraph (2) that would have applied in the member’s case if the member had become entitled to the increase on the date of death (disregarding paragraph (3));

(b)in the case of a surviving partner pension payable under regulation G3 (widow’s pension when member dies after pension becomes payable), 37.5% of the amount of the increase in the member’s pension as a result of the option;

(c)in the case of a child allowance payable under regulation H3 (child allowance when member dies in pensionable employment), H5 (child allowance when member dies with preserved pension) or S6(19)(b), the appropriate fraction of 75% of the amount of the increase mentioned in paragraph (2) that would have applied in the member’s case if the member had become entitled to the increase on the date of death (disregarding paragraph (3)); and

(d)in the case of a child allowance payable under regulation H4 (child allowance when member dies after pension becomes payable) or S6(19)(a), the appropriate fraction of 75% of the amount of the increase in the member’s pension as a result of the option.

(6) For the purposes of paragraph (5) the “appropriate fraction” means the same fraction as that applied to the member’s pension in order to calculate the amount of child allowance payable in respect of that member.

(7) Paragraph (8) applies only to an option under regulation Q8(1)(a), Q10(1)(a) or Q11(1)(a) where a pension is to be paid for either three or six months at the same rate as the member’s pension was being paid at the date of that member’s death.

(8) Any increase in a member’s pension shall be included only in a benefit payable to a surviving partner or a dependent child in respect of the member under these Regulations whilst it is being paid at the rate and for the duration of one of the periods referred to in paragraph (7).
