Reckoning of Service

19.—(1) Subject as hereafter in this rule provided, in respect of a person to whom this Part applies—

(a)there shall be reckoned as reckonable service—

(i)any period of service which, at the time of his ceasing to be employed in local government employment, is reckonable as contributing service or as service or a period of contribution for the purposes of a local Act scheme;

(ii)any period of national service after ceasing to be employed in local government employment which would have been reckonable as aforesaid if he had again become employed in local government employment after the termination thereof; and

(iii) one-half of any period of service which, at the time of his ceasing to be employed in local government employment, is reckonable as non-contributing service; and

(b)there shall be reckoned as class C external service for the purposes of the Teachers' Regulations any period of service which, at the time of his ceasing to be employed in local government employment, is reckonable as non-contributing service, except in so far as that service is reckoned under this rule or those Regulations as reckonable service or as class A or class B external service for the purposes of those Regulations.

(2) Where a person to whom this Part applies has, during his local government employment, been employed as a part-time employee, the period of his part-time service shall be treated—

(a)for the purpose of determining whether he has served for any minimum period prescribed by the Teachers' Regulations as necessary for any pension to be paid to or in respect of him as if it were whole-time service; and

(b)for the purpose of calculating the amount of any pension payable under the Teachers' Regulations, as if it were whole-time service for a proportionately reduced period.

(3) Where by virtue of a scheme modifying the Act of 1937 any period of service of a person to whom this Part applies is reckoned at a fraction of its actual length for the purpose of calculating the amount of the transfer value payable under rule 17, then, for the purpose of calculating the amount of any pension payable to or in respect of him under the Teachers' Regulations, only that fraction of that period of service shall be reckoned as reckonable service.

(4) In respect of a person to whom this Part applies there shall not by virtue of this Part be reckoned as reckonable service—

(a)any service which he is or was entitled to reckon as contributing or non-contributing service by virtue of section 15 of the Act of 1937 or the corresponding provisions of a local Act scheme if that service is reckonable as first class service under the Teachers Superannuation (Scotland) Regulations 1957(1) or as reckonable service within the meaning of regulations made under section 1 of the Teachers' Superannuation (Scotland) Act 1968; or

(b)any service which in his case is deemed to be service to which the said section 15 applies by virtue of the Local Government Superannuation (England and Scotland) Regulations 1948(2), if that service is reckonable as reckonable service otherwise than by virtue of these Rules; or

(c)any service which is the subject of a direction under section 17(3) of the Act of 1953 that all rights enjoyed by or in respect of the person with respect to that service shall be forfeited.

(5) The whole of any period of service to which paragraph (1) above applies shall, for the purpose of calculating under section 4(3) of the Teachers' Superannuation Act 1967 the average salary of a person to whom this Part applies, be reckoned as a period of employment in reckonable service and his salary during any period so reckoned shall be such amount as would under the Benefits Regulations be taken into account for the purpose of determining the annual average of his remuneration during that period.

(6) Notwithstanding anything in this rule before contained, any service of a person to whom this Part applies which under the Acts of 1937 to 1953 or a local Act scheme was at the time ceased to be employed in local government employment reckonable only of the purpose of calculating the amount of any pension payable to or in respect of him or only for the purpose of determining whether he was entitled to any pension shall be reckoned only for the corresponding like purpose under the Teachers' Regulations.
