Social Security Contributions (Transfer of Functions, etc.) Act 1999

Section 15: transitional provisions

189.The SSA, which includes the new material on social security decision-making and appeals to the new unified appeals tribunal, is not yet in force. It will not come fully into force until after the day appointed for the operational transfer. A succession of appointed days in respect of different matters is expected during the course of 1999/2000. The main provisions of this Act are drafted on the basis that the changes made by the SSA are in place, but for a transitional period that is unlikely to be the case. Section 15 enables regulations to be made modifying existing adjudication provisions in the SSAA 1992 and the pension schemes legislation so as to enable the decision-making regime introduced by this Act to operate alongside the present arrangements for social security adjudication relating to contributions, SSP, SMP and pensions schemes during that transitional period.
