Re-employed pensioners

28.—(1) Where a member is entitled to two retirement pensions because of being a member in two employments which were not concurrent, he may elect for a single new pension.

(2) If he so elects, he becomes entitled to a single retirement pension and retirement grant, each calculated by reference to the augmented period (but see paragraph (7)).

(3) The augmented period is the member’s total membership in the later employment, increased by the period which would have been aggregated if he had made an election under regulation 31(1) as respects his earlier employment when he became an active member in his later employment.

(4) However, if the retirement pension from the earlier employment was calculated using a longer period of membership than the period which is the augmented period under paragraph (3), the longer period is the augmented period for paragraph (2).

(5) No election may be made if the pension for the earlier employment–

(a)is paid under regulation 30 and subject to a reduction; or

(b)is an EPB pension.

(6) The member must set off any retirement grant he received because of his membership in the earlier employment (“the first grant”) against the retirement grant under this regulation and, if it was greater, repay the difference between the grants to the new authority.

(7) For paragraph (6), the first grant includes the amount by which it would have been increased under the Pensions (Increase) Act 1971(1) if it had become payable at the same time as the retirement grant under this regulation.

(8) Any additional period which did not count in the calculation of the first grant because of regulation 53(3) does not count in calculating the retirement grant under this regulation either.

(9) Any surrender of the pension from the earlier employment operates to the same extent on the single pension, but the surrendered pension is payable by the new authority.

(10) Where the later retirement is one to which regulation 26 (ill-health) applies and the member does not become entitled to a single pension–

(a)if his earlier pension is also payable under that regulation and he gave notice under paragraph 4 of Schedule 10 to the 1987 Regulations when he left the earlier employment, regulation 27(1) does not apply (and so his total membership without enhancement is used for the multiplier for the later pension); but

(b)if his earlier pension is not payable under that regulation, the membership enhancement period is 6 243/365 years more than his total membership.
