(3) The amount of the contribution under paragraph (2) must be such percentage of the authority’s estimate of the aggregate of the pensionable pay, as regards the year in respect of which the contribution is made, of those firefighters employed by the authority who are required to make pension contributions in that year, as determined and notified to them for that year by the Assembly.

(4) In respect of each firefighter employed by the authority who retires with an entitlement to immediate payment of a higher tier ill-health pension under rule 2 of Part 3, the authority must transfer into the FPF such amount as is determined and notified to them by the Assembly as the higher tier ill-health charge applicable in respect of that pension.

(5) In respect of each firefighter employed by the authority who retires—

(a)with an entitlement to immediate payment of a lower tier ill-health pension under rule 2 of Part 3; and

(b)with no entitlement to a higher tier ill-health pension,

the authority must transfer into the FPF such amount as is determined and notified to them by the Assembly as the lower tier ill-health charge applicable in respect of that pension.

(6) The amount to be transferred under paragraph (4) or (5) must be transferred in three equal instalments.
