SCHEDULE 1Scottish Parliamentary Pension Scheme

Part OAdded years

Resumption of service as MSP member

87(1)This rule applies where—

(a)an MSP member’s application to buy added years by monthly instalments is accepted by the Fund trustees but the individual concerned stops being an MSP member before paying the last instalment,

(b)the individual subsequently rejoins the scheme as an MSP member before the end of the period for which instalments were originally payable, and

(c)the individual, within 3 months of so rejoining, notifies the Fund trustees of his or her intention to resume paying instalments.

(2)Where this rule applies—

(a)instalments (of the same amount as before) are payable from the day on which the individual rejoined the scheme until the end of the period for which instalments were originally payable,

(b)the individual’s reckonable service as an MSP is reduced by the amount by which it was previously increased under rule 86(2), and

(c)when the last instalment is paid (or, if earlier, when the individual next leaves the scheme), the individual’s reckonable service as an MSP is increased by a number of added years calculated as follows—

where—

  • “A” is the number of added years the individual applied to buy,

  • “B” is the total of the periods (in days) before and after the break in service in respect of which instalments have been paid, and

  • “C” is the period (in days) for which instalments would have been paid had the individual remained in the scheme continuously.
