Consideration of Bill


Pensions Bill, As Amended


Terminally ill claimants and the Pension Protection Fund


Mr Mark Hendrick




To move the following Clause:—



Where the Board is satisfied that a qualifying member is “terminally ill”, that


member, regardless of whether they have reached normal pension age, shall be


entitled to a lump sum payment equal to twice their annual entitlement under the


scheme if they retired at normal pension age.



A person is “terminally ill” at any time if at that time they suffer from a


progressive disease and their death in consequence of that disease can reasonably


be expected within six months.’.
