  (a)   means a pension (including a benefit that is taken, under these regulations, to be a pension for the purposes of the Act), other than a benefit that is taken, under subregulation   1.06(1), to be a pension by reason only that it is provided under rules of a superannuation fund that meet the standards of subregulation   1.06(2); but
