The Tier 2 migrant will need to meet all the requirements of the Immigration Rules at the time when they apply for settlement. If they are considering applying for settlement in the future, they should note that the Immigration Rules are subject to change, so yes, a Tier 2 migrant granted leave in 2013 may be impacted in 2018 or after if they wish to apply for settlement then.

The Home Office has already indicacted from now that from 6th April 2016, the Tier 2 migrant must be earning the higher of:
£35,000 per year gross ; or the correct rate of pay for their job as stated in the code of practice for Tier 2 sponsors:

Hope this helps

Yes, correct, unless the figures change again by then.

All the best
