(4C) If the conditions in sub-paragraph (4D) are met, the amount arrived at under paragraph 3(2) in relation to the arrangement which is attributable otherwise than to the paying of relevant additional voluntary contributions is a protected pension input amount to the extent specified in sub-paragraph (4E).

(4D) The conditions in this sub-paragraph are that—

(b)the cessation date was on or after 22 April 2009,

(c)the arrangement under that other pension scheme by reference to which the individual was an active member of that pension scheme (“the old arrangement”) was one in the case of which some or all of the benefits accruing under the arrangement were accruing in circumstances in which the amount arrived at under paragraph 3(2) in relation to the old arrangement was to any extent a protected pension input amount by virtue of this paragraph,

(d)the individual does not make more than one arrangement under a pension scheme other than that under which the old arrangement was an arrangement in the period of 3 months beginning with the cessation date,

(4E) The amount arrived at under paragraph 3(2) is a protected pension input amount to the extent that it does not exceed the amount which would have been a protected pension input amount in respect of the old arrangement for the accrual period had the old arrangement continued during that period.

(4F) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (4E) the accrual period has the meaning set out in paragraph 8(4G)..

(3) For sub-paragraph (5) of paragraph 9 substitute—
