Rule 80: Extinction of scheme benefits

319.Rule 80 specifies the effect that a transfer has on an ex-’scheme member’s rights in the scheme. These are extinguished once a transfer payment has been made. An exception to this applies where rule 77 required the Fund trustees to retain part of a transfer value to cover GMP rights or rights attributed to contracted-out employment.
