Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally made). This item of legislation is currently only available in its original format.

Calculation of pensionable service

6.—(1) Paragraphs (3) to (5) are subject to rule 2(2) and (3).

(2) For the purposes of paragraphs (3) and (4), a period which comprises three hundred and sixty five completed days including 29 February must be treated as a completed year.

(3) The pensionable service of a regular firefighter member must be calculated in accordance with the formula—

where—

  • A is the number of completed years in the period, and

  • B is the number of completed days in any remaining part of a year.

(4) The pensionable service of a part-time regular firefighter member must be calculated as a proportion of whole-time service by applying the formula—

where—

  • A is the person’s weekly contractual hours,

  • B is the weekly whole-time equivalent conditioned hours, and

  • C is the period of the person’s part-time service in years (calculated in accordance with the formula in paragraph (3), and with regard to paragraph (2)),

and in this paragraph “conditioned hours” (“oriau wedi'u pennu”) means the number of hours that the person was required to work each week under the terms of that person’s contract of employment.

(5) The pensionable service of a retained or volunteer firefighter for any year or part of a year of the firefighter’s service must be assessed as a proportion of whole-time service in accordance with the formula—

where—

  • A is the actual pensionable pay received in that year, and

  • B is the retained or volunteer firefighter’s reference pay for that year.

(6) Where, for the purpose of calculating an award payable to or in respect of a firefighter member—

(a)it is necessary to determine the firefighter member’s pensionable service reckonable by reason of service or employment before or after a particular date (“the material date”), and

(b)by virtue of the receipt by an authority of a transfer value payment, the firefighter member is entitled to reckon a period of pensionable service (“the credited period”) by reason of employment for a period (“the previous employment period”) which includes that date,

the credited period counts as pensionable service reckonable by reason of employment before and after the material date in the same proportion as that between the parts of the previous employment period falling before and after the material date.
