If a member has paid contributions for 12 months or more they will be credited with the full amount of membership they would have purchased if they had carried on making contributions until their Normal Pension Age (NPA).
If they worked part time, the additional membership purchased will be calculated based on the number of pensionable hours actually worked.
If payment has been made for less than 12 months, the added years contributions will be returned.
