(2) If an active member is absent from scheme employment by reason of illness or injury and is not entitled to receive pensionable pay (including statutory pay) for any period, that member may pay contributions at the contribution rate ascertained in accordance with regulation 119 (member contributions) multiplied by the amount of pensionable pay received immediately before the cessation of pay and if required by the scheme employer, must pay the amount of employer contribution which the scheme employer would otherwise be required to pay by regulation 126(3) (employer contributions).

(3) If an active member is absent on a trade dispute, the member may elect to pay the contributions at the contribution rate ascertained in accordance with regulation 119 (member contributions) multiplied by the assumed pensionable pay that member is treated as receiving and, if required by the scheme employer, must pay the amount of employer contribution which the scheme employer would otherwise be required to pay by regulation 126(3) (employer contributions).

(4) If an active member is away from work during a period of authorised unpaid absence, the member may elect to pay contributions at the contribution rate ascertained in accordance with regulation 119 (member contributions) multiplied by the assumed pensionable pay that member is treated as receiving and, if required by the scheme employer, must pay the amount of employer contributions which the scheme employer would otherwise be required to pay by regulation 126(3) (employer contributions).

(5) Where paragraph (2), (3) or (4) applies, the contributions must be paid before the end of the period of six months starting with the date on which the member is treated as receiving assumed pensionable pay.
