Rights of former employees

27.—(1) The successor authority in relation to any superannuation fund transferred by this order shall send to any person entitled to a benefit payable out of the fund a notification in writing of the name and address of the authority which is liable under this order to make the payment.

(2) If any person to whom article 42 of the London County Council (Superannuation) Scheme 1958 applied immediately before 1st April 1965 thereafter enters the employment of the Greater London Council, the Common Council or the council of an inner London borough in the circumstances mentioned in paragraph (8) or (9) of that article, he shall be entitled to the like rights as he would have had under those paragraphs if he had re-entered the employment of the London County Council.

(3) If any contributor to the London County Council's superannuation fund who had retired on grounds of ill-health before 1st April 1965 thereafter enters the employment of the Greater London Council, the Common Council or the council of an inner London borough, he shall be entitled to the like rights as he would have enjoyed under article 45 of the London County Council (Superannuation) Scheme 1958 if he had re-entered the employment of the London County Council.

(4) Except as provided in paragraphs (2) and (3) of this article, any person who immediately prior to 1st April 1965 was in receipt of benefits payable out of the superannuation fund of any authority ceasing to exist on that day, shall, in the event of his re-employment by any local authority or other body, enjoy the like rights and be subject to the like obligations as if the Act had not been passed.

(5) Any authority which becomes liable under this order to continue the payment of a pension to any person shall have the like power to make payments to the personal representatives, or to the spouse or other dependant of the person as was exercisable by the authority by which the pension was payable immediately prior to 1st April 1965; and where the power is discretionary, article 26 shall apply in relation to its exercise.

(6) Where the rights and liabilities of a former employee of any authority or of his widow, dependants or legal personal representatives are affected by this order, section 35 of the Act of 1937 shall apply to any question concerning those rights and liabilities.
