This section has no associated Policy Notes

3.K.9.—(1) This regulation applies for the purpose of determining the amount of an Optant’s pensionable earnings (if any) that fall to be treated as capped Optant pensionable earnings for the purposes of calculating benefits payable to, or in respect of, the Optant under this Part.

(2) In paragraph (1), “capped Optant pensionable earnings” means the amount of pensionable earnings that the Optant is entitled to count under regulations 3.K.3 and 3.K.5 in respect of an amount of capped pensionable earnings for service in the 1995 Section up to, and including, 31st March 2008.

(3) For the purposes of paragraph (2) the Optant’s pensionable earnings were capped pensionable earnings in respect of service in the 1995 Section so far as—

(a)in the case of pensionable earnings in respect of service before 6th April 2006—

(i)the Optant was an active member of the 1995 Section; and

(ii)that Optant’s pension under that Section in respect of the service was to be calculated by reference to pensionable earnings limited in each tax year to the permitted maximum for that year within the meaning of section 590C(2) (earnings cap) of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988(1); or

(b)in the case of pensionable earnings in respect of service on or after 6th April 2006—

(i)the Optant was an active member of the 1995 Section; and

(ii)that Optant’s pension under that Section in respect of the service was to be calculated by reference to pensionable earnings limited in each tax year to an amount calculated in the same manner as the permitted maximum under Section 590C(2) of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988 was calculated for tax years ending before that date.

(4) For the purposes of paragraph (3) it does not matter whether, apart from the application of the limit referred to in that paragraph, the Optant’s earnings in any tax year would have exceeded the amount of the limit.

(5) In this regulation “pensionable earnings” has the meaning given in regulation 3.A.7.
