Article 11(1)

SCHEDULE 1FINAL REMUNERATION

In this Order, “final remuneration” means the greater of—
(a)the highest emoluments of a person as a Representative which are assessable to income tax under Case I or II of Schedule E and upon which tax liability has been determined for any period of 12 months in the 5 years preceding the relevant date, and
(b)the yearly average of the total emoluments of a person as a Representative which are assessable to income tax under Case I or II of Schedule E and upon which tax liability has been determined for any 3 or more consecutive years ending not earlier than 10 years before the relevant date.
Provided that—
(i)where final remuneration is computed by reference to any year other than the last complete year ending on the relevant date, the contributor’s remuneration (as calculated in (a) above) or total emoluments (for the purposes of (b) above) of any year may be increased in proportion to any increase in the index from the last day of that year up to the relevant date;
(ii)an early retirement pension in payment under the principal Order may not be included in final remuneration;
(iii)final remuneration shall not exceed the permitted maximum.
For the purposes of providing immediate benefits at the relevant date final remuneration may be calculated on the appropriate basis above using remuneration assessable to tax under Case I or II of Schedule E and upon which tax liability has not been determined. On determination of this liability final remuneration shall be recalculated. Should this result in a lower final remuneration then benefits in payment shall be reduced as necessary. Where final remuneration is greater, the benefits in payment may be augmented. Such augmentation shall take the form of an annuity.
Where immediate benefits are not being provided or where a transfer payment is to be made in respect of accrued pension benefits then final remuneration may only be calculated using remuneration assessable to income tax under Case I or II of Schedule E and upon which tax liability has been determined.

Article 11(2)
SCHEDULE 2

1.  This Schedule sets out the maximum pension payable in respect of a person at the relevant date.

Class A contributors

2.—(1) On retirement at any time after age 50 except before normal retirement date on grounds of incapacity, a pension of 1/60th of final remuneration for each year of service (not exceeding 40 years) or, if greater,

the lesser of

(a)1/30th of final remuneration for each year of service (not exceeding 20 years); and

(b)2/3rds of final remuneration minus the pension value of all retained benefits.

(2) On retirement before normal retirement date on grounds of incapacity an immediate pension in accordance with sub-paragraph (1) above on the basis of the number of years which would have counted as service had the contributor remained in service to the normal retirement date.

(3) On leaving pensionable service before the normal retirement date a deferred pension—

(a)for contributors who remain in service, of that proportion of the amount calculated in accordance with sub-paragraph (2) above that the number (not exceeding 40) of years of pensionable service completed before leaving pensionable service bears to the potential number (not exceeding 40) of years of service had the contributor remained in service to the normal retirement date; or

(b)for other contributors, of the amount calculated in accordance with sub-paragraph (1) above,

increased by up to 3 per cent for each complete year, or, if greater, in proportion to any increase in the index which has occurred during the period of deferment.

(4) Benefits are further restricted as necessary to ensure that the contributor’s total retirement benefit from the AVC scheme, from the principal scheme and from any FSAVC scheme does not exceed 1/30th of the permitted maximum for each year of service. For the purpose of this limit service is the aggregate of service provided that the total shall not exceed 20 years. The permitted maximum in this context is that for the year of assessment in which the benefits commence to be paid or, if earlier, are transferred out of the principal scheme. For the purpose of calculating the total retirement benefit the pension equivalent of benefit in any form other than pension is one twelfth of its cash value.

and

(b)2/3rds of final remuneration minus the pension value of all retained benefits.

(2) On retirement before normal retirement date—

(a)on grounds of incapacity, the amount calculated in accordance with sub-paragraph (a) above that the number (not exceeding 40) of years of service completed before leaving service bears to the potential number (not exceeding 40) of years of service had the contributor remained in service to normal retirement date.

(b)other than on grounds of incapacity the greater of–

(i)1/60th of final remuneration for each year of service (not exceeding 40 years); and

(ii)that proportion of the amount calculated in accordance with paragraph (a) above that the number (not exceeding 40) of years of service completed before leaving service bears to the potential number (not exceeding 40) of years of service had the contributor remained in service to the normal retirement date.

(a)the amount calculated in accordance with sub-paragraph (1) above on the basis that the actual date of retirement was the contributor’s normal retirement date; or

Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order makes provision for participants in the pension scheme for United Kingdom Representatives to the European Parliament (constituted by the provisions of Orders made under section 4 of the European Parliament (Pay and Pensions Act 1979) to pay additional voluntary contributions in order to secure additional benefits within limits determined by the Board of Inland Revenue. Article 3 provides for the Secretary of State to appoint financial institutions to accept contributions and to provide pension benefits and for the scheme to be administered by the Managers of the principal scheme.
Article 5 deals with the payment of regular and lump sum contributions and imposes a limit on their total amount. A transfer value to the AVC scheme may be accepted by the Managers only if it represents the realisable value of the contributor’s own voluntary contributions. Article 6 provides for the Managers to invest contributions in accordance with any instructions given by the contributor, which may include instructions to pay all or part of the contributions to secure a lump sum death benefit in the event of death while paying such contributions.
Article 7 sets out what benefits are available and when. On retirement, article 9 provides that investments (except those made with death benefit contributions) are to be realised and retirement or dependants' pensions, or both, purchased with the proceeds from an institution appointed by the Secretary of State in accordance with the contributor’s instructions. Article 10 sets out the circumstances in which, before retirement, the realisable value of a contributor’s investments may be transferred to another pension scheme, used to purchase an annuity, or returned to him.
Article 11, with Schedule 2, sets out the limits imposed by the Board of Inland Revenue on all kinds of benefits payable under the Order; to the extent that any limit would otherwise be exceeded, article 12 refers to Revenue Regulations which provide that the contributor may choose to use the excess to increase or to provide another permitted benefit, to link to the Index of Retail Prices pension which would otherwise be payable at a flat rate or to have the excess amount repaid, after deduction of tax.
Article 13 permits the Secretary of State to require an institution to surrender the whole or part of the value of contributions invested with it; the Managers must then re-invest the amount surrendered in accordance with article 6. Article 15 specifies that the costs of establishing and administering the AVC scheme are to be paid out of money provided by Parliament and article 16 prohibits the assignment or charge of any benefits payable under the scheme.
The Order revokes S.I. 1995/720 which was defective and was not published.
