Social Security Pensions Act 1975

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Modification of Part III in certain cases

5(1)Regulations may modify the provisions of Part III of this Act in their application to cases in which a person is employed at the same time in two or more employments (whether or not under the same employer), being employments of which at least one is contracted-out employment but which are not all contracted-out employments, with a view to enabling the employments to be treated either separately or together for the purposes of that Part of this Act.

(2)Regulations may modify the provisions of Part III of this Act in their application to cases in which—

(a)any description of benefit under a scheme is subject to a limit (however imposed) operating so as to prevent service beyond a particular length from qualifying for further benefits;

(b)earners qualify for the benefits of a scheme by reference not only to service in contracted-out employment but also to service in the same or another employment (whether or not contracted-out employment) before the scheme was contracted-out in relation to them or their employment;

and regulations under this paragraph may include provision for securing that in such cases an earner's employment does not cease to be contracted-out employment only because his service for the time being does not qualify him for the requisite benefits.
