Social Security (Contributions) (Amendment No. 3) Regulations 2005 come into force

Implementation date: 6 April 2005

The Regulations amend the Social Security (Contributions) Regulations 2001 by inserting new definitions of 'the acquired gender' and 'full gender recognition certificate'. They also make provision for the earnings periods of a person who was born a woman, is a company director, and is aged between 60 and 64 when a full gender recognition certificate is issued recognising the person's gender as male. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
