Schedule 3 transitional Provisions and Savings

Paragraph 20: Guaranteed minimum pension

554.Rule 105 sets out the guaranteed minimum pension entitlement which is payable to a member in relation to a transfer-in sum on reaching pensionable age in accordance with sections 14 to 16 of the 1993 Act. See paragraphs 437-444.

555.Such rights for the scheme will only arise by virtue of being attached to transfer-in sums in respect of pre-1997 service in other pensionable employment. Paragraph 20 makes it clear that any guaranteed minimum pension entitlement for scheme members includes the value of any such rights attaching to sums transferred into the scheme under the transfer provisions of the 1999 pensions order.
