Rule 74: Statement of entitlement

308.Rule 74(2) provides for additional transfer rights to those set out in the 1993 Act. The 1993 Act only requires transfers and statements of entitlement for individuals up to one year prior to the normal retirement age. SPPS transfers can be made after the scheme’s normal retirement age of 65 (a member can contribute to the SPPS up to age 75). Rule 74(2) allows this rule to apply to those aged 64 or over, provided they stopped being a participating member of the scheme no longer than six months ago. Therefore, transfers out are possible for serving MSPs and office-holders over 64 where they have opted out of the scheme under rules 23 or 24.
