(b)that form and supporting medical evidence was received by the Scottish Ministers before the end of a period of one year commencing on the date on which the Optant commenced payment for a period of additional service under regulation Q5 (paying by regular additional contributions) of the 2011 Regulations (as modified by paragraph 26 of Schedule 1 to those Regulations); and

(c)following a consideration of the form and medical evidence referred to in sub-paragraph (a), that Optant becomes entitled to a lower tier ill health pension or an upper tier ill health pension under regulation 3.D.7 (early retirement on ill health: active members and non-contributing members) within a period of one year beginning with the day on which the Optant’s option to join this Section of the scheme is received,

that Optant is not entitled to count a period of pensionable service under regulation 3.K.5 and—

(i)an amount equal to the contributions (less any tax that may be payable) made by the Optant in respect that period of additional service must be returned to the Optant in accordance with regulation Q7(2) (part payment for additional service or unreduced retirement lump sum) of the 2011 Regulations; and

(ii)regulation 3.K.5(8) does not apply.

(3) If—

(b)that form and supporting medical evidence was received by the Scottish Ministers after a period of at least one year commencing on the date on which the Optant commenced payment for a period of additional service under regulation Q5 of the 2011 Regulations; and

(c)following a consideration of the form and medical evidence referred to in sub-paragraph (a), that Optant becomes entitled to a lower tier ill health pension or an upper tier ill health pension under regulation 3.D.7 within a period of one year beginning with the day on which the Optant’s option to join this Section of the scheme is received,

in addition to the pensionable service that Optant is entitled to count under regulation 3.K.5, that Optant is also entitled to count a period of pensionable service determined under paragraph (4).

(4) The period of pensionable service that an Optant is entitled to count under this regulation must be a period of service equal to the difference between—

(a)the period of service the Optant is entitled to count under regulation 3.K.5; and

(b)the period of service the Optant elected to purchase under regulation Q1 (right to buy additional service) of the 2011 Regulations (as modified by paragraph 26 of Schedule 1 to those Regulations) calculated in accordance with regulation Q7(3) and (4) (part payment for additional service or unreduced retirement lump sum) of the 2011 Regulations (as modified by paragraph 26 of Schedule 1 to those Regulations) and as if the member had become entitled to a pension under regulation E3 of those Regulations on the day the Scottish Ministers received that person’s option to join this Section of the scheme.
