Local Government Pension Scheme Amendment (Scotland) Regulations 2010 come into force

Implementation date: 5 July 2010

The Regulations impose a further restriction on the right to a refund of pension contributions where a member of the occupational pension scheme to which these Regulations relate holds two concurrent employments and ceases to be an active member in one of them. The Regulations require administering authorities to publish a pension fund annual report, and amend reg.9 of the Local Government Pension Scheme (Benefits, Membership and Contributions) (Scotland) Regulations 2008 (SI 2008/230) to clarify the meaning of pay for pension purposes. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
