Please take a note of the following rules:

  • The full weekly Pension, Death in Service and Sick Pay contribution rate is payable to the Scheme regardless of the number of days worked in a week by any member.
  • Both the member and employer portion of the Pension, Death in Service and Sick Pay contribution must be paid into the Scheme together to ensure that the member is covered for Death in Service and Sick Pay benefits.
  • The Pensions Act, 1990 as amended, requires all employers to pay contributions due to a pension scheme within 21 days of the end of the month in which the deductions were made. If Pension and Death in Service contributions due to the Scheme have not been paid on time an arrears rate will be applied to any unpaid contributions as per Rule 4.9 of the Scheme’s Trust Deed & Rules.
  • Annual Member Benefit Statements for 2020 will be issued to all active members of the Scheme in March 2021. These statements will show all contributions paid into the member’s account from 1st January to 31st December 2020 as well as the current value of their pension fund to date and how it may grow in the future. Contributions paid in after 31st December 2020 will show in the 2021 statements to be issued in 2022.


New rates are effective 1st Feb 2022.
