Rule 58: Partner’s pension

242.Rule 58 sets out the qualification conditions for payment of a partner’s pension. Rule 58(1) allows for a partner’s pension to be payable following the death of a participating member, deferred pensioner or scheme pensioner. Rule 58(2) determines that a partner’s pension is 5/8ths of the deceased’s prospective pension entitlement as described in paragraphs 235-240.

243.Under rule 69, the partner’s pension is suspended for any 5 year guarantee period as a partner will receive a larger entitlement of the deceased’s pension if they qualify for a payment under the 5 year guarantee provisions (see Part L).
