Superannuation Act, 1946

Adjustment of superannuation award.

3.—(1) This section applies to a person—

(a) in respect of whose remuneration a determination was made by the Minister for Finance under subsection (5) of section 3 of the Public Services (Temporary Economies) Act, 1933 (No. 37 of 1933), and

(b) who retired from the Civil Service with a superannuation award on or after the 1st day of July, 1940, and before the passing of this Act, and

(c) to whom the 1940 Regulations applied immediately before such retirement.

(2) In this section the expression “superannuation award” includes a superannuation allowance under subsection (1) of section 1 of the Superannuation Act, 1909, and any such allowance as altered under the Emergency Powers (No. 354) Order, 1945 (S. R. & O., No. 29 of 1945), and any additional allowance under section 3 of the said Act.

(3) The superannuation award of a person to whom this section applies may be so adjusted as to authorise payment as if the 1940 Regulations did not apply to him immediately before the date of his retirement, and the adjusted award may be payable as from the date on which the original award first became payable.

(4) In making payments under subsection (3) of this section credit shall be taken for the payments of the superannuation award already made.
