Transfers from Firefighters' Pension Fund

3.—(1) Where, in consequence of a review under rule 1 of Part 9—

(a)a higher tier ill-health pension is cancelled before all the instalments of the higher tier ill-health charge in respect of that pension have been transferred in accordance with rule 2 of this Part; and

(b)a lower tier ill-health pension continues to be paid,

the amount referred to in paragraph (2) must be transferred from the FPF to any other fund maintained by the authority.

(2) The amount is an amount equal to the difference between—

(a)the aggregate of such instalments of the higher tier ill-health charge as have been transferred in accordance with rule 2; and

(b)the aggregate amount that would have been transferred if—

(i)the lower tier ill-health charge had always applied in respect of the pension, and

(ii)instalments of that charge had been transferred on the dates on which instalments of the higher tier ill-health charge were transferred.

(3) For the purposes of ascertaining the amount to be transferred in accordance with paragraph (2), the authority concerned must request the Assembly to determine the amount of the notional lower tier ill-health charge in respect of the pension concerned.

(4) Where a person declines an offer of employment under rule 2(3)(b) of Part 9 and does not again take up employment with an authority in Wales—

(a)paragraph (4) or (5) of rule 2 (as the case may be), must be disregarded in that person’s case (to the extent that it remains to be complied with); and

(b)the authority which made the offer—

(i)must not make any transfer into the FPF in respect of that person as regards any time after the date on which they receive notice that the offer has been rejected; and

(i)must transfer from the FPF to any other fund maintained by them an amount equal to the aggregate of the instalments that have been transferred to the FPF in respect of the pension that has been terminated.

(5) Where—

(a)a higher tier ill-health pension or a lower tier ill-health pension is wholly and permanently withdrawn under any provision of Part 9; and

(b)the former recipient of that pension does not again take up employment with an authority in Wales,

paragraph (4) or (5) of rule 2 (as the case may be), must be disregarded in that person’s case (to the extent that it remains to be complied with); and the authority must transfer from the FPF to any other fund maintained by them an amount equal to the aggregate of the instalments that have been transferred to the FPF in respect of the pension that has been cancelled.
