This section has no associated Policy Notes

2.E.17.—(1) The lump sum payable on the death of an active member or a non-contributing member, who is not also a deferred member or a pensioner member, is an amount equal to twice the member’s reckonable pay and, in the case of a 2008 Section Optant, this is subject to regulation 2.K.23 (lump sum payable on the death of a 2008 Section Optant who is in receipt of a lower tier ill health pension under regulation E3 of the 2011 Regulations) and, in the case of a Waiting Period Joiner, this is subject to regulation 2.L.4 (lump sum payable on death).

(2) Subject to regulations 2.E.21 (pension payable when member dies on or after reaching age 75) and 2.E.22 (payment of lump sums or pensions on death), the lump sum payable on the death of a pensioner member, who is not also an active member, a non-contributing member or a deferred member, is, in respect of each pension to which the member is entitled, the lesser of—

(a)an amount equal to 5 times the annual rate of the pension (other than any additional pension), less the amount of the pension payments already made to the member; and

(b)an amount equal to twice the member’s reckonable pay by reference to which the pension was calculated, less the aggregate of—

(i)any lump sum paid to the member when the pension came into payment as a result of the member exercising the option under regulation 2.D.14 (general option to exchange part of pension for lump sum); and

(ii)in the case of a 2008 Section Optant, the lump sum paid to the Optant under regulation 2.K.12 (amount of pension and lump sum to be paid to a 2008 Section Optant).

(3) The lump sum payable on the death of a deferred member, who was not an active member, a non-contributing member or a pensioner member, is an amount equal to the member’s deferred annual pension, multiplied by 2.25.

(4) The lump sum payable on the death of a recent leaver is an amount equal to the deferred annual pension to which the person would have been entitled if the person were entitled to such a pension calculated by reference to the pensionable service the recent leaver was entitled to count in the service that has ceased, multiplied by 2.25.

(5) In this regulation, references to a member’s deferred annual pension are to the annual pension, in respect of any period of pensionable service, to which the member would have been entitled under regulation 2.D.1 (normal retirement pensions) if on the date of death the member had become entitled to such a pension (other than any additional pension).

(6) The reference in paragraph (2)(a) to the annual rate of the member’s pension is to the member’s pension after it has been reduced to take account of—

(a)the exercise by the member of an option under regulation 2.D.14; and

(b)in the case of a 2008 Section Optant, the lump sum paid to the Optant under regulation 2.K.12 (amount of pension and lump sum to be paid).

(7) If a pensioner member exercised the option under regulation 2.D.17 (election to allocate pension), the reference in paragraph (2)(a) to the amount of the pension payments already made to the member is a reference to the amount of the pension payments that would have been made apart from the election.

(8) For the purposes of this regulation, the fact that a person—

(a)was an active member or a non-contributing member in service in an employment in respect of which the member has exercised the option under regulation 2.D.5 (partial retirement: members aged at least 55);

(b)is a deferred member as a result of service in an employment in respect of which the member has exercised that option; or

(c)is a pensioner member by virtue of being entitled to a pension under that regulation,

is ignored.
