Education (Scotland) Act 1945

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

2(1)Notwithstanding anything in any enactment, a teacher employed in service within the meaning of this Scheme shall not be subject to an independent superannuation scheme in respect of that service.

(2)Where a teacher who becomes employed in service within the meaning of this Scheme at or after the, appointed day—

(a)has, not more than one year before he so becomes employed in such service, been subject to an independent superannuation scheme, and

(b)would, but for the foregoing paragraph, be subject to such a scheme in respect of the service in which he so becomes employed,

the service in which he so becomes employed shall not be treated as service within the meaning of this Scheme, and he shall be subject to the independent superannuation scheme accordingly :

Provided that if any teacher who is subject to an independent superannuation scheme by virtue of the foregoing provisions of this paragraph elects within the prescribed time and in the prescribed manner to withdraw from the scheme, the said provisions shall not have effect in relation to any service in which he is employed after the election takes effect.

(3)Where any teacher makes such an election, the election shall take effect as from the appointed day, or as from the time when he entered the service in which he is for the time being employed, whichever is the later.

(4)Where any such election is made by a teacher who is a contributory employee or a local Act contributor as defined by the Local Government Superannuation (Scotland) Act, 1937, he shall be entitled to receive out of the appropriate superannuation fund a sum equal to the aggregate amount of his contributions to that fund calculated in accordance with subsection (5) of section ten of the said Act of 1937, or, as the case may be, in accordance with the corresponding provision of the local Act scheme, together with compound interest on those contributions, calculated to the date on which he ceases to be a contributory employee or a local Act contributor at the rate of three per cent. per annum with half yearly rests.

(5)In this article the expression "independent superannuation scheme " means :—

(a)any superannuation scheme other than this Scheme (including a superannuation scheme established by or under any public general or local Act of Parliament or provisional order confirmed by Parliament) which provides for the payment of contributions to a fund by any local authority or the persons responsible for the management of any educational establishment or other educational institution, and for the payment out of that fund, in respect of service rendered to the authority or to those persons, of benefits on disablement, retirement, attainment of any specified age, or death ; and

(b)any system of superannuation (not being a system established by or under any public general or local Act of Parliament or provisional order confirmed by Parliament) operated jointly by a number of educational establishments or other educational institutions for the purpose of providing such benefits as aforesaid in respect of the service of persons employed by them.
