PART II


INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE USE OF PENSION TABLES


The calculation of the amount of the pension that will or may become payable at the death of a contributor
should not be delayed until such death has actually occurred; but records should be kept in which full particulars in
respect of each contributor should be entered, and in these records should be recorded against every married or
widower contributor the amount of the pension which would become payable should he die immediately, leaving a
widow or orphans entitled to such pension. The amount of the pension per annum so entered in the records against a
contributor (which in these Instructions is referred to as his "registered pension") should be calculated, and re-
calculated as often as may be necessary, in accordance with these Instructions.

Note 1.-The pension, if any, (including all variations consequent upon the rise or fall in the amount of any contribution

or upon re-marriage) in respect of every officer who has ceased to contribute and whose last contributions fell
due on or before the 30th day of June 1959 shall be calculated or continue to be calculated on and in
accordance with the pension tables and rules for calculating pensions in force on the 30th day of June 1959.


Note 2.-The pension, if any, (including variations consequent upon the rise or fall in the amount of any contribution

which fell due on or before the 30th day of June 1959, but not which falls due on or after the 1st day of July
1959, and including variations consequent upon re-marriage on or before the 30th day of June 1959, but not
upon re-marriage on or after the 1st day of July 1959) in respect of every officer (other than an officer who
was a bachelor on the 30th day of June 1959) who commenced to contribute before, and was still a contributor
on, the 1st day of July 1959 shall be calculated in two parts in the manner indicated in the examples given in
section G of this Part, namely-

(a) the part purchased by contributions which fell due on or before the 30th day of June 1959, which shall
be ascertained by subtracting the annual pension, calculated on and in accordance with the pension
tables and rules for calculating pensions in force on the 30th day of June 1959, which would be
payable to beneficiaries of the officer in the event of the officer making no further contributions after
the 30th day of June 1959, from the annual pension, similarly calculated, which would have become
payable to beneficiaries of the officer if he had died on the 30th day of June 1959; and

(b) the part purchased by contributions falling due on or after the 1st day of July 1959, which shall be
calculated on the section of Table B in Part I of this Schedule which contains in the heading the age
next birthday of the officer at the date of completion of his period of contribution or, where completion
of the period of contribution occurs on his attaining the age of sixty-five years without his having
contributed for thirty-five successive years, on the last section of Table B in Part I of this Schedule,
such calculation being based on the annual contribution of the officer as at the 30th day of June 1959;

and if Part (b), so calculated, is not less than it would be if it were similarly calculated on the appropriate
section of Table B of the pension tables in force on the 30th day of June 1959 it shall be added to Part (a);
otherwise, Part (b) shall be similarly calculated on the appropriate section of Table B of the pension tables in
force on the 30th day of June 1959 and the amount thereof added to Part (a).


Note 3.-The pension (including variations consequent upon the rise or fall in the amount of any contribution or upon

re-marriage) in respect of the following officers shall be calculated on and in accordance with the Tables and
Instructions set forth in this Schedule, that is to say-

(a) the pension, if any, in respect of every officer who commenced to contribute on or after the 1st day of
July 1959; and



Cap 94 - WIDOWS AND ORPHANS PENSION ORDINANCE 29

(b) the pension, if any, in respect of every officer who, being a bachelor, marries on or after the 1st day of
July 1959, in relation to contributions paid both before and after marriage and whether or not he
commenced to contribute before the 1st day of July 1959.


Note 4.-The Tables and Instructions set forth in this Schedule shall apply-

(a) to the pension, if any, in respect of every officer who commenced to contribute before, and was still a
contributor on, the 1st day of July 1959, for the purpose of calculating variations when the amount of
his contributions rises or falls on or after that date; and

(b) to the pension, if any, of every officer, being an officer who commenced to contribute before, and was
still a contributor on, the 1st day of July 1959, who on the 30th day of June 1959 was a widower, for
the purpose of calculating variations consequent upon his re-marriage on or after the 1st day of July
1959, if he re-marries on or after that date.


Note 5.-Notwithstanding Note 2, 3 or 4, where the amount of the part of a pension, if any, (including all variations

consequent upon the rise or fall in the amount of any contribution or upon re-marriage) purchased by
contributions falling due on or before 30 November 1967, when calculated on and in accordance with the
Tables and Instructions set forth in this Schedule, is less than the amount of any such part calculated on and in
accordance with the pension tables and rules for calculating pensions in force on 30 June 1959, the difference
between the two amounts shall be added to the registered pension, if any, as at 30 November 1967, calculated
on and in accordance with the Tables and Instructions set forth in this Schedule. (Added 7 of 1971 s. 2)


Note 6.-Notwithstanding Note 2, 3 or 4, where a pension calculated on and in accordance with the pension tables and

rules for calculating pensions in force on 30 June 1959 and payable before 1 December 1967 is greater than it
would be if it were calculated on and in accordance with the Tables and Instructions set forth in this Schedule,
that pension shall continue to be calculated on and in accordance with the pension tables and rules for
calculating pensions in force on 30 June 1959. (Added 7 of 1971 s. 2)


SECTION A-CONTRIBUTOR WHO COMMENCED TO CONTRIBUTE WHILE A BACHELOR OR WHILE A

WIDOWER WITHOUT ANY CHILD OF PENSIONABLE AGE

Note 1.-In this section-

"first wife" (首任妻子) , in the case of an officer who commenced to contribute while a widower without any
child of pensionable age, means the first wife married by such officer after his commencing to contribute;
and

"marriage" (婚姻、結婚) , in the case of an officer who commenced to contribute while a widower without
any child of pensionable age, means the first marriage of such officer after his commencing to contribute.


Note 2.-No registered pension is to be recorded unless and until the contributor marries.


I-FIRST WIFE'S PROSPECTIVE PENSION


The registered pension to be recorded on marriage is found by adding together the two amounts calculated in
accordance with the following rules I(a) and I(b), respectively-

(a) Pension in consideration of the contributions paid before marriage.


RULE I(a)-Increase each contribution by 50 per cent (being Government's contribution); then accumulate the
contributions (so increased) at 3 1/2 per cent, compound interest, with yearly rests at each 31st
December; and then multiply the result by the quantity found from Table A corresponding to the
respective ages next birthday of the husband and wife at the date of marriage.


The product gives the registered pension on account of the contributions paid before marriage.


(b) Pension in consideration of the annual contribution current at the date of marriage.



Cap 94 - WIDOWS AND ORPHANS PENSION ORDINANCE 30


RULE I(b)-Increase the amount of the current annual contribution (which is obtained by multiplying by 12 the

amount of the last monthly contribution) by 50 per cent (being Government's contribution); then
turn to the section of Table B which contains in the heading the age next birthday of the husband at
the date of completion of his period of contribution, or, where completion of the period of
contribution occurs on his attaining the age of 65 years without his having contributed for 35
successive years, turn to the last section of Table B, and multiply the amount of the current annual
contribution (so increased) by the quantity found from that section corresponding to the respective
ages next birthday of the husband and wife at the date of marriage.


The product gives the registered pension on account of the annual contribution current at the

date of marriage.

(c) Variations of pension consequent on increments to, and decrements from, the current annual contribution while

the contributor is married to his first wife.


RULE I(c)-Increase the amount of the increment to, or the decrement from, the current annual contribution (which
is obtained by multiplying by 12 the amount of the last monthly contribution) by 50 per cent; then
turn to the section of Table B which contains in the heading the age next birthday of the husband at
the date of completion of his period of contribution, or, where completion of the period of
contribution occurs on his attaining the age of 65 years without his having contributed for 35
successive years, turn to the last section of Table B, and multiply the amount of the increment or
decrement (so increased) by the quantity found from that section corresponding to the respective ages
next birthday of the husband and wife at the date of the variation of the contribution.


The product gives the amount to be added to the registered pension consequent on the increment

to the current annual contribution, or, as the case may be, the amount to be deducted from the
registered pension consequent on the decrement from the current annual contribution.


The cessation of the contribution from any cause, other than by reason of the death of the

contributor, before the completion of the full period of contribution must be regarded as a decrement
from the current annual contribution equal to the amount of such current annual contribution.


EXAMPLE-


Assume particulars as in example subjoined to rules I(a) and I(b).
Annual contribution increases on 31st May 1967 from $500 to ............. $700

II-SECOND, AND SUBSEQUENT, WIFE'S PROSPECTIVE PENSION


(a) Variations of pension consequent upon increments to, and decrements from, the current annual contribution
while the contributor is a widower.


RULE II(a)-Assume that the contributor is married to a wife of the age that his last preceding wife would have

been had she survived to the date of the variation of the contribution, and proceed in accordance
with rule I(c).


EXAMPLE-



Cap 94 - WIDOWS AND ORPHANS PENSION ORDINANCE 33


If the particulars be as in the example subjoined to rule I(c), except that the first wife, who was born on

31st August 1942, dies on 30th November 1962, it would be assumed that the contributor was at the date of each
of the three variations of the contribution married to a wife who was born on 31st August 1942. The calculations
will then be identical with those given in the example subjoined to rule I(c).


(b) Variations of pension consequent on the re-marriage of the contributor.


Note-No variation of the registered pension is to be recorded if the second or subsequent wife was at the date of
the re-marriage of the same age next birthday as the last preceding wife would have been had she survived
to that date.


RULE II(b)-If the second, or subsequent, wife was at the date of the re-marriage of a lesser or greater age next

birthday than the last preceding wife would have been had she survived to that date, multiply the
amount of the registered pension by the quantity found from Table C corresponding to the age next
birthday of the husband at the date of re-marriage, and the age next birthday which the last
preceding wife would have attained had she survived to that date; then multiply the product so
obtained by the quantity found from Table A corresponding to the respective ages next birthday of
the husband and of the second, or subsequent, wife at the date of the re-marriage.

The result gives the registered pension to be recorded on the re-marriage of the contributor.


EXAMPLE-


Assume particulars as in the example subjoined to rules I(a) and I(b).
First wife dies on ......................................................... 30th November 1962
Contributor re-marries on ............................................. 31st January 1967
Contributor's age next birthday at date of the re-marriage ...... 35
Second wife born on .................................................... 30th June 1947
Second wife's age next birthday at date of the re-marriage ..... 20
Age next birthday which the first wife would have attained had she survived to date

of the re-marriage ..........................

25


31st January 1967 (i.e. date of re-marriage)-The second wife being of a less age next birthday at the date of

the re-marriage than the first wife would have been had she survived, the registered pension of $4381.45
(see example subjoined to rules I(a) and I(b)) is to be re-calculated as follows-


Quantity found from Table C-

Husband ......................... 35



4.25

First wife** .................... 25


Quantity found from Table A-

Husband ........................ 35

} .209 Second wife** ............... 20
Registered pension at 31st January 1967 = $4381.45 x 4.25 x .209

= $3891.82

(c) Variations of pension consequent on increments to, and decrements from, the current annual contribution while

the contributor is married to his second, or subsequent, wife.


RULE II(c)-Proceed as in rule I(c)

SECTION B-CONTRIBUTOR WHO COMMENCED TO CONTRIBUTE WHILE MARRIED



Cap 94 - WIDOWS AND ORPHANS PENSION ORDINANCE 34


Note-In every case of an officer who commenced to contribute while married, the wife at the date of commencement

of the contribution is to be considered as the officer's first wife, and no particulars are to be recorded respecting
any former wife to whom he may have been married unless there is issue of such former wife of a pensionable
age, in which case the matter is regulated by sections 21, 22, 24, 25 and 28 of the Ordinance (see Section D-
Pensions to orphan children).


III-FIRST WIFE'S PROSPECTIVE PENSION


(a) Pension in consideration of the annual contribution current at the date of commencement of the contribution.


RULE III(a)-Increase the amount of the current annual contribution (which is obtained by multiplying by 12 the
amount of the last monthly contribution) by 50 per cent (being Government's contribution); then
turn to the section of Table B which contains in the heading the age next birthday of the husband at
the date of completion of his period of contribution, or where completion of the period of
contribution occurs on his attaining the age of 65 years without his having contributed for 35
successive years, turn to the last section of Table B, and multiply the amount of the current annual
contribution (so increased) by the quantity found from that section corresponding to the respective
ages next birthday of the husband and wife at the date of commencement of the contribution.

The product gives the registered pension on account of the annual contribution current at the
date of commencement of the contribution.

RULE V- For the purpose of calculating the registered pension assume that the deceased wife survived to the date

of commencement of the contribution and died immediately afterwards; then proceed in accordance
with the rules applicable to the case of officers who commenced to contribute while married (see
Section B).


SECTION D- PENSION TO ORPHAN CHILDREN

Pensions to orphan children are regulated by sections 21, 22, 24, 25 and 28 of the Ordinance.


SECTION E- CONTRIBUTOR TRANSFERRED TO THE SERVICE OF ANOTHER COLONY
Throughout these Instructions and the examples given the calculations depend, not on the official income of

the contributor, but on the amount of his contribution so that the transfer of an officer to another service does not
affect his registered pension unless the amount of his current annual contribution is varied, in which case the
proper adjustment is to be made in accordance with the preceding rules.


SECTION F- CALCULATION OF QUANTITIES (OR TABULAR RESULTS) FOR AGES NOT GIVEN IN THE

TABLES

TABLE A-This Table gives every age of the husband from 18 to 65; and every fifth age of the wife from 15 to 80.

Ages of husbands and wives younger than the youngest or older than the oldest ages quoted in the Table
are to be dealt with as if identical with the youngest and oldest ages respectively as shown in the Table.

For the intermediate ages of wives, interpolate by exact fifths but where to do so would give a figure
of more than three decimal points, that figure shall be taken to its nearest thousandth part of a unit.


EXAMPLE-

To find the quantity corresponding to the ages of a husband and wife aged, respectively, 25 and 19 next
birthday-

The quantity for ages 25 and 15 next birthday given in the Table is ......................... .294
The quantity for ages 25 and 20 next birthday given in the Table is ......................... .334

So that the addition of 5 years to the age of the wife results in an addition of .04 to the quantity given in the

Table for ages 25 and 15 next birthday.


An addition of 4 years to the age of the wife accordingly results by proportion in an addition of four-fifths
of .04 to the quantity given in the Table for the ages 25 and 15 next birthday.


Four-fifths of .04 = .032, which when added to .294 gives .326 which is the required quantity corresponding

to ages 25 and 19 next birthday.

TABLE B-This Table is divided into twelve sections. The first eleven sections are respectively applicable to officers

who will be aged next birthday 55, 56, 57, and so on for each year up to 65, when they complete their
period of contribution after having contributed for 35 successive years. The twelfth section is applicable to
officers who will cease to contribute on attaining the age of 65 years without having contributed for 35
successive years.



Cap 94 - WIDOWS AND ORPHANS PENSION ORDINANCE 36

In each section quantities are given for consecutive ages of the husband, and for every fifth ages of the
wife.

Age of the wife younger than the youngest or older than the oldest age quoted in whichever section of
Table B is applicable in the circumstance of the case in question are to be dealt with as if identical with the
youngest and oldest age respectively as shown in the Table.

For the intermediate ages of wives, interpolate by exact fifths in the manner indicated in the example
given for Table A in this section, but where to do so would give a figure of more than two decimal points,
that figure shall be taken to its nearest hundredth part of a unit. Thus, the quantity found from the first
section of Table B (age 55 next birthday) corresponding to the ages of a husband and wife aged
respectively 40 and 33 next birthday is three-fifths of .4, added to 2.39, which gives 2.63.

For officers who commence to contribute at an earlier age than 20 next birthday the method of
calculation given in the subjoined example is to be followed.


EXAMPLE (1)-


An officer aged 17 next birthday, having a wife aged 17 next birthday, commences to contribute. Assume that
the officer is aged 20 next birthday and apply the first section of Table B. The quantity thus found is 7.67 (i.e. 7.23 +
two-fifths of 1.1).

This officer receives an increment of salary at age 22 next birthday, when his wife's age is also 22 next
birthday. Assume that his age is 25 next birthday (i.e. his actual age next birthday plus the difference between his
actual age next birthday at date of commencement of contribution and the age of 20 next birthday, which in this
Example is 3). On this assumption, the quantity found from the same section of Table B will be 6.44 (i.e. 6.04 + two-
fifths of 1).


EXAMPLE (2)-


An officer aged 19 next birthday commences to contribute as a bachelor, and five years later, when aged 24
next birthday, marries, his wife's age being 20 next birthday. The quantity found from Table A in accordance with rule
I(a) will be taken for the actual ages next birthday (husband 24 and wife 20) and will be .351. With respect to the
current annual contribution at marriage, assume that the officer's age next birthday is 25 (i.e. his actual age next
birthday plus the difference between his actual age next birthday at date of commencement of contribution and the age
of 20 next birthday, which in this Example is 1) so that the quantity found from the first section of Table B will be
6.04.

This officer receives an increment of salary when aged 39 next birthday, when his wife's age is 35 next
birthday. Assume as before that the ages next birthday are 40 and 35, so that the quantity found from the same section
of Table B will be 2.79.

Note-It will be observed that the method given in the above two examples takes account of the actual number of years

for which the annual contribution will run. In Example (1), when the officer receives the increment of salary at
the age 22 next birthday he has contributed for five years, so that at the expiration of 30 years from then his
contribution will cease. Similarly, in Example (2), when the officer marries at age 24 next birthday, he also has
contributed for five years, so that although he is two years older than the officer in Example (1), yet the
unexpired period of contribution is the same in each case. (If the wife's age were also the same in each of these
two cases, no important error would be involved in using the same tabular quantity for the two cases).


TABLE C-The quantities are given for the same ages as in Table A. Ages of husbands and wives younger than the

youngest or older than the oldest age quoted in the Table are to be dealt with as in using Table A.
For the intermediate ages of wives, interpolate by exact fifths, but where to do so would give a figure

of more than two decimal points, that figure shall be taken to its nearest hundredth part of a unit. It must be
noted, however, that in this Table an addition to the age of the wife results in a deduction from the quantity
given in the Table.


EXAMPLE-


To find the quantity corresponding to the ages of a husband and wife aged respectively 37 and 29 next



Cap 94 - WIDOWS AND ORPHANS PENSION ORDINANCE 37

birthday-
The quantity for ages 37 and 25 next birthday given in the Table is .................. 4.68
The quantity for ages 37 and 30 next birthday given in the Table is................... 4.08

So that the addition of five years to the age of the wife results in a deduction of .6 from the quantity given in
the Table for ages 37 and 25 next birthday.

An addition of four years to the age of the wife accordingly results by proportion in a deduction of four-fifths
of .6 from the quantity given in the Table for ages 37 and 25 next birthday.

Four-fifths of .6 = .48, which deducted from 4.68 leaves 4.2, which is the required quantity corresponding to
the ages 37 and 29 next birthday.


SECTION G-CONTRIBUTOR (EXCLUDING A CONTRIBUTOR WHO WAS A BACHELOR ON 30TH JUNE

1959) WHO COMMENCED TO CONTRIBUTE BEFORE, AND WAS STILL A CONTRIBUTOR
ON, 1ST JULY 1959


Note-The registered pension of such an officer is to be calculated in two parts, namely, the part purchased by

contributions which fell due on or before the 30th June 1959, and the part purchased by contributions falling due
on or after 1st day of July 1959, the first part on the Table in force on 30th June 1959 and the second part on the
Tables in Part I of this Schedule, unless the registered pension at the 30th June 1959 (calculated on the Table in
force on 30th June 1959) exceeds the registered pension as calculated in two parts as stated in this Note in which
case the former is to be retained as the registered pension of the officer as at the 30th June 1959. Variations in
the registered pension consequent upon the rise or fall in contributions on or after the 1st July 1959 or resulting
from the re-marriage of the officer on or after that date are, however, to be calculated on and in accordance with
the Tables and Instructions in this Schedule.


EXAMPLE (1)-


Officer born on ............................................................................... 31st July 1920
Officer married on .......................................................................... 30th June 1945
Officer commenced to contribute on ................................................ 1st April 1946
Annual contribution as at 30th June 1959 .......................................... $1500
Wife born on ................................................................................ 31st August 1921
Registered pension as at 30th June 1959 (calculated on Tables in force

on that date) ............................................................................. $10785

Quantity found from Table B in force on 30th June 1959, section for officers aged 61 next birthday when

they complete their period of contribution-
Husband aged 39 next birthday on 1st July 1959

} 4.50 Wife** aged 38 next birthday on same date


Therefore, on the Tables in force on 30th June 1959, the part of the registered pension to be purchased by
contribution falling due on or after the 1st July 1959 is $1,500 x 4.50, i.e. $6750.


Therefore, on the same Tables, the part of the registered pension purchased by contributions which fall due

on or before 30th June 1959 is $10785 minus $6750, i.e. $4035.


Quantity found from Table B in this Schedule, section for officers aged 61 next birthday when they
complete their period of contribution-

Husband aged 39 next birthday on 1st July 1959

} 4.27 Wife** aged 38 next birthday on same date


Therefore, on the Tables in this Schedule, the amount of the registered pension to be purchased by
contributions falling due on or after 1st July 1959 is $1500 + $750 (i.e. 50% increase of annual



Cap 94 - WIDOWS AND ORPHANS PENSION ORDINANCE 38

contribution) = $2250 x 4.27, i.e. $9607.50.


As, in this example, the part of the registered pension to be purchased by contributions falling due on or
after 1st July 1959, when calculated on the Tables in this Schedule, is greater than the same part when
calculated on the Tables in force on 30th June 1959, it is to be added to the part purchased by
contributions which fell due on or before 30th June 1959.


Thus, the registered pension in this example, as at 30th June 1959 is ..........

......................................................................................................... $ 4035.00
+$ 9607.50

Total ........ $13642.50
========


EXAMPLE (2)-

Officer born on ............................................................................ 31st July 1907
Officer commences contributing .................................................... 1st April 1927
Officer marries on ....................................................................... 30th June 1947
Wife born on .............................................................................. 31st August 1927
Age next birthday of officer on date of completion of contribution

period ....................................................................................

55

Age next birthday of officer on 1st July 1959 ................................ 52
Age next birthday of wife on 1st July 1959 ................................... 32
Annual contribution as at 30th June 1959 ..................................... $1200
Registered pension as at 30th June 1959 (calculated on Tables in force on that

date) ..................................................................

$16000

Quantity found from Table B in force on 30th June 1959, section for officers aged 55 next birthday when they
complete their period of contribution-

Husband aged 52 next birthday on 1st July 1959

} .73 Wife** aged 32 next birthday on same date
Therefore, on the Tables in force on 30th June 1959, the part of the registered pension to be purchased by

contributions falling due on or after 1st July 1959 is $1200 x .73, i.e. $876.00


Therefore, on the same Tables, the part purchased by contributions which fell due on or before 30th June 1959
is $16000 minus $876, i.e. $15124.00.


Quantity found from Table B in this Schedule, section for officers aged 55 next birthday when they complete

their period of contribution-
Husband aged 52 next birthday on 1st July 1959

} .36 Wife** aged 32 next birthday on same date


Therefore, on the Tables in this Schedule, the amount of the registered pension to be purchased by
contributions falling due on or after 1st July 1959 is $1200 + $600 (i.e. 50% increase of annual
contribution) = $1800 x .36, i.e. $648.00.


This is less than the same part as calculated on the Tables in force on 30th June 1959.


Therefore, the part to be purchased by contributions falling due on or after the 1st July 1959 is to be calculated

on the Tables in force on 30th June 1959, and added to the part purchased by contributions which fell due
on or before 30th June 1959.


Thus, the registered pension in this example, as at 30th June 1959, is ..... $15124.00
+$ 876.00



Cap 94 - WIDOWS AND ORPHANS PENSION ORDINANCE 39

Total .................... $16000.00
========


In other words, the total registered pension as at the 30th June 1959, as calculated on the Tables then in force,

is to be retained.
