Rule 52: Amount of deferred pensioner’s ill-health pension

218.Rule 52 provides for the amount of deferred pensioner’s ill-health pension payable. The individual applying for a deferred pensioner’s ill-health pension is treated as if they were age 65 on the date the application for the pension was made. The amount of pension is then calculated under rule 37 (see paragraphs 141-143) and is based on accrued reckonable service. The final salary of the deferred pensioner is the final salary paid to them while in post, increased in accordance with an Order made under paragraph 2(1) of Schedule 3 to the Pension Schemes Act 1993. In effect, pension accrued to the date of entitlement is paid immediately, without any reduction because the individual has not reached age 65.
