A non-accruing period is the period during which a person is a [glossary:non-accruing member:188] and not able to add to the accrual of existing bonus periods. When their non-accruing period ends, they will become an accruing member again if they continue with the pension bonus scheme and are not a post 70/75 member of the scheme. Non-accruing members can claim a pension bonus in this period.
