Rule 79: Time limits

318.Whilst the rules provide time limits for the payment of a transferable sum from the scheme, there may be exceptional circumstances where it would not be acceptable to prevent a transfer payment being made outside these time limits. Rule 79 allows the Fund trustees some discretion to extend time limits should they think it reasonable to do so.
