This section has no associated Policy Notes

3.E.10.—(1) This regulation applies for determining the annual amount of the pension payable under regulation 3.E.8(1) (surviving dependent child’s pension) if at the date of death the deceased was an active member or a non-contributing member of this Section of the scheme who was not also a pensioner member.

(2) Subject to paragraphs (5) and (6), that amount is the appropriate fraction of the basic death pension.

(3) In this regulation “the basic death pension” means 75% of the deceased member’s pension under regulation 3.D.1 (normal retirement pensions) and—

(a)in the case of an active member, that pension is to include the greater of—

(i)any increase due to such enhancement period (if any) that would have applied for the purposes of regulation 3.D.7(5) (early retirement on ill health: active members and non-contributing members) if the deceased had become entitled to an upper tier ill health pension on the date of death; and

(ii)10 years’ pensionable service;

(b)in the case of a non-contributing member, is to be based on the pensionable service that the deceased was entitled to count on the date of death,

and, in the case of a 2008 Section Optant, this is subject to regulation 3.K.23 (children’s pensions 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 3.L.5 (children’s pensions payable on the death).

(4) In this regulation “the appropriate fraction” means—

(a)if there is a surviving parent of the dependent child or children or a surviving spouse or civil partner of a parent of the dependent child or children and a surviving adult dependant’s pension is payable under regulation 3.E.1—

(i)one-quarter if there is only one dependent child; and

(ii)one-half if there are two or more dependent children;

(b)if there is a such a parent or spouse or civil partner of a parent, but no surviving adult dependant’s pension is payable under regulation 3.E.1—

(i)one-third if there is only one dependent child; and

(ii)two-thirds if there are two or more dependent children; and

(c)if there is no such parent or spouse or civil partner of such a parent—

(i)one-third if there is only one dependent child; and

(ii)two-thirds if there are two or more dependent children.

(5) If—

(a)a surviving adult dependant’s pension is payable under regulation 3.E.1; and

(b)there is a dependent child who is not dependent on the person entitled to that pension,

the rate of the pension payable in respect of that child for the first three months after the deceased’s death is equal to—

(i)in the case of a deceased active member, the average rate of the deceased’s pensionable earnings during the last complete quarter before the member died; and

(ii)in the case of a deceased non-contributing member, the rate of the monthly average of the deceased’s uprated earnings on the member’s last day of pensionable service.

(6) In a case within paragraph (4)(b) or (c), the rate of pension in respect of the dependent child or children for the period of 6 months beginning with the deceased’s death is equal to—

(a)in the case of a deceased active member, the average rate of the deceased’s pensionable earnings during the last complete quarter before the member died;

(b)in the case of a deceased non-contributing member, the rate of the monthly average of the deceased’s uprated earnings on the member’s last day of pensionable service.
