(6) After paragraph 29, insert—

(3) In this paragraph—

“deemed pension” means the amount of earned pension the member would have accrued in the member’s deemed period of pensionable service if the circumstances in paragraph 29(4B)(a) had not applied;

where—

A is the member’s assumed period of pensionable service; and

ending with—

for a member otherwise employed, the day before the day on which the member will reach prospective normal pension age (assuming that the member lives until that age);

“the member’s deemed period of pensionable service” means the period (expressed in years)—

(a)

beginning with the day the member became an active member of this scheme; and

(b)
