Rule 78: Transfer payment

316.Rule 78 sets out the time limit for the payment of a transferable sum as being no later than the individual’s 65th birthday or, if later, the day falling six months after the transfer notice was given.

317.Rule 78(2) governs a transfer payment that is made more than six months after the guarantee date. The guarantee date is the date used to calculate the amount of the transferable sum to be paid. Should the payment be delayed by more than six months, the transfer sum is to be increased to either (a) the amount the transfer sum would have been if the guarantee date was the transfer date, or (b) the original transfer sum plus the amount of daily interest.
