    Date of joining the scheme                 > 01/03/2012
    Date of Notice of Invalidity received    > 01/07/2015
    40 consecutive months preceding
    the month of Notice received              > 03/2012–06/2015
    employee contribution record1

    Based on the above example, employees are eligible to receive a pension at a rate of 50% of their average assumed monthly wages.

    Date of joining the scheme               >  01/07/1999
    Date of Notice of Invalidity received  > 01/01/2015
    Number of monthly contributions for
    July 1999 to December 2014            > 186 months
    2/3 monthly contributions paid         > 2/3 x 186 months = 124 contributions
