This section has no associated Policy Notes

3.D.6.—(1) This regulation applies if, in a case where a member has exercised the option under regulation 3.D.5 (partial retirement: members aged at least 55)—

(a)during the period of 12 months beginning with the day after the option day, the terms on which the member holds the employment or employments referred to in regulation 3.D.5(1)(a) change again; and

(b)either—

(i)as a result, the level of the member’s engagement in that employment or those employments is increased to more than 90% of the member’s pre-change level; or

(ii)following an increase referred to in head (i), the member’s engagement in that employment or those employments is reduced to less than 90% of the member’s engagement during the period of 12 months ending with the option day.

(2) In the circumstances referred to in—

(a)paragraph (1)(b)(i), the amount of the member’s pension mentioned in regulation 3.D.5(4)(a) and (b) must be abated to zero from the first pension day immediately following the day on which the level of the member’s engagement increased; and

(b)paragraph (1)(b)(ii), subject to any adjustments in accordance with paragraph (3), the member is again entitled to receive payment of the full amount of the pension mentioned in sub-paragraphs (a) and (b) of that regulation as from the first pension day immediately following the day on which the level of the member’s engagement reduced.

(3) Where paragraph (2)(b) applies, before restoring the payment of a pension the Scottish Ministers must have regard to the advice of the scheme actuary as to whether the amount of the pension should be adjusted in view of the length of time during which it was abated to zero in accordance with paragraph (2)(a).

(4) For the purposes of this regulation, if during the period of 12 months beginning with the day after the option day the member enters a further employment or employments in which the member is an active member or a non-contributing member of this Section of the scheme—

(a)that event is to be treated as if the terms on which the member holds the employment or employments in respect of which the option was exercised (“the option employment”) had changed again; and

(b)the member’s level of engagement in the further employment or employments is to be treated as an increase in the level of the member’s engagement in the option employment or employments.

(5) In this regulation, a member’s “employment”, “the option day” and “pre-change level” have the same meanings as in regulation 3.D.5(7) (partial retirement: members aged at least 55).

(6) Where—

(a)a member’s pension is abated in accordance with paragraph (2)(a) in the circumstances described in paragraph (1)(b); and

(b)the member’s level of engagement does not reduce in the manner described in paragraph (1)(c),

the pension is (in any event) payable by the Scottish Ministers when the member retires, or partially retires again, from pensionable employment or attains age 75 and in doing so the Scottish Ministers must—

(i)have regard to any pensions already paid, including any lump sum paid as a result of the member exercising an option under regulation 3.D.10 (general option to exchange part of pension for lump sum); and

(ii)take the advice of the scheme actuary.
