Application of regulation 2.D.9 where a 2008 Section Optant has submitted an application for ill health retirement under the 1995 Section
This section has no associated Policy Notes

2.K.16.—(1) This regulation applies to a 2008 Section Optant who—

(a)submitted a form AW8 (or such other form as the Scottish Ministers are willing to accept) together with supporting medical evidence (if not included on the form) for the purposes of an ill health pension payable in accordance with regulation E3 (early retirement pension on ill health grounds (post 1st April 2008)) of the 2011 Regulations; and

(b)that form and supporting medical evidence was received by the Scottish Ministers before the date on which the Scottish Ministers received the Optant’s option to join this Section of the scheme.

(2) If following a consideration of the form and medical evidence referred to in paragraph (1) an Optant referred to in that paragraph becomes entitled to a pension under regulation 2.D.8(2) (early retirement on ill health: active members and non-contributing members) (“a lower tier ill health pension”)—

(a)within a period of one year beginning with the day on which that Optant’s option to join this Section of the scheme is received; and

(b)immediately before joining this Section of the scheme the Optant was notified under regulation E4 (re-assessment of ill health condition determined under regulation E3) of the 2011 Regulations that the Optant may ask the Scottish Ministers to consider whether that Optant subsequently meets the upper tier condition under that regulation,

that Optant must be entitled to a re-assessment of entitlement to an ill health pension determined under regulation 2.D.9 (re-assessment of entitlement to an ill health pension) in accordance with the following paragraphs of this regulation.

(3) For the purposes of assessing whether the Optant satisfies the condition in regulation 2.D.8(3)(a) at the date of the Scottish Ministers’ review, “permanently” means until age 60.

(4) If, after considering the further medical evidence provided by the Optant under regulation 2.D.9 the Scottish Ministers determine that the Optant meets the condition in regulation 2.D.8(3)(a), then as from the date on which that determination is made the Optant—

(a)ceases to be entitled to a lower tier ill health pension; and

(b)becomes entitled to an upper tier ill health pension under regulation 2.D.8 but must be calculated in accordance with paragraph (5).

(5) Subject to paragraph (6), for the purpose of calculating the upper tier ill health pension referred to in paragraph (4)—

(a)the Optant’s service must be increased by the transitional enhancement period determined in accordance with whichever of regulation 2.K.14(3) or (4) apply to that Optant; and

(b)the transitional enhancement period must apply to that Optant’s service in place of the enhancement period that, apart from this regulation, would otherwise apply to that Optant’s service under regulation 2.D.8(6).

(6) In the case of an Optant to whom this regulation applies—

(a)regulation 2.K.14(3) must be read as if the definition of “the Optant’s assumed pensionable service” included the words “from the date of the Scottish Ministers’ determination under regulation 2.D.9” after “continued in service”; and

(b)references to the “enhancement period” in regulation 2.D.8 are to be read as references to the “transitional enhancement period” determined under this regulation.
