(2)Paragraph 3 applies as if for sub-paragraphs (1) to (3) there were substituted—

(1)Where the member becomes entitled to income withdrawal, the applicable amount is—

Formula - VULSR divided by VUR multiplied by (LS plus AD)

  • LS is the lump sum paid, and

  • AD is the aggregate of the amount of the sums, and the market value of the assets, designated as available for the payment of unsecured pension on that occasion.

(2)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (1) there is to be deducted from the aggregate of the lump sum and the amount of the sums and the market value of the assets designated as available for the payment of unsecured pension so much (if any) of that amount as represents rights which are attributable to a disqualifying pension credit.

(3)Where the member becomes entitled to a lifetime annuity, the applicable amount is—

(b)in any case, so much (if any) of the aggregate of the lump sum and the annuity purchase price as represents rights which are attributable to a disqualifying pension credit.

(6)Where the member becomes entitled to a scheme pension, the applicable amount is—

Formula - VULSR divided by VUR multiplied by (LS plus AC)

but subject to sub-paragraph (8).
