Sickness and Absence

How will Assumed Pensionable Pay (APP) be calculated when an employee has multiple sickness which span over the assessment period?

In this situation the employer takes the last three complete months’ pensionable pay, if monthly paid, including any APP credited in those three months and multiplies this by four to calculate the annual rate of APP for that member.  In calculating the daily APP from this annual APP the employer should use whatever method is normally used to calculate one day’s pay from an annual rate.  For instance, by dividing the total annual APP by the number of working days in a year, or by dividing by the number of calendar days in a year or whatever method is normally used.  If they are not monthly paid the employer uses the last 12 weeks.
