Scottish Parliamentary Pensions Act 2009

Rule 32: Contributions from the SPCB

123.The SPCB, by virtue of rule 27, is required to pay all scheme member contributions deducted from salary to the Fund trustees who then pay the contributions into the Pension Fund. Rule 32 provides that a sum must also be paid directly into the Fund each year by the SPCB.

124.Rule 32(2) allows the SPCB to determine the amount of that sum, providing it takes account of the scheme actuary’s recommended rate for future contributions and any advice received from the Fund trustees. The Fund trustees must obtain an actuarial report from the scheme actuary at intervals of no longer than three years. Such a report must include a recommended contribution rate from the SPCB, which is set as a percentage of a scheme member’s salary (see rule 103(3)).
