Rule 49: Deferred pensioner’s ill-health pension

203.Rule 49 lists seven conditions which must be met before the Fund trustees can be satisfied that a deferred pensioner becomes entitled to an ill-health pension. The amount of pension payable is set out in rule 52. A deferred pensioner is defined in rule 109(1) and is a former participating member under the age of 65.

204.Conditions 1, 2 and 4 are similar to conditions 2 and 3 for serious ill-health pensions (see paragraph 198).

205.Condition 3 is similar to condition 1 in rules 47 and 48 for ordinary and serious ill-health pension and requires that the deferred pensioner has stopped doing gainful work as a direct consequence of their health condition.

206.Conditions 5, 6 and 7 are the same as conditions 4, 5 and 6 for serious ill-health pension (see paragraphs 199-200).
