Pensions Act (Northern Ireland) 2008

Part 7 - Additional pension: simplified accrual rates

Paragraph 32 makes consequential amendments to section 172 of the Contributions and Benefits Act so that any order setting the upper accrual point will be subject to the confirmatory resolution procedure in the Assembly, and an order designating the flat rate introduction year will not be subject to any Assembly procedure (this is also the case for normal commencement orders).

Paragraphs 33 to 36 make consequential amendments to the Pension Schemes Act in connection with contracting-out arrangements for defined benefit pension schemes to cater for the introduction of the upper accrual point.
