Abstract/Citation: Amends Section 4 of Occupational Pension Schemes (Preservation of Benefits) Regulations 1992. Provides that in a situation where a member changes both employment and scheme in circumstances arising out of a compulsory sale/take-over or where a member transfers to a company within the same group of companies, this will not be treated as a termination of "relevant employment" if the member transfers into the new scheme and the amount not less than the amount specified in the Regulations is paid to that scheme in respect of the member's accrued benefits. Termination of relevant employment will occur if commencement in the new employment/scheme does not occur within a specified period after termination of the first employment. Also amends Section 10 of the Occupational Pension Schemes (Preservation of Benefits) Regulations, 1992.
