The Pensions Board has responsibility for regulating occupational pension schemes and PRSAs (Personal Retirement Savings Accounts).
Public Sector Pension Schemes are pension schemes available to public sector workers e.g. civil servants, an Garda Siochana and public sector bodies. Usually these arrangements provide two types of schemes: a Superannuation scheme and a Spouses’ and Children’s Pension Scheme. Benefits from these schemes are either paid directly from the state or are partly funded by the state and may require some level of contribution from the member. Benefits are broadly determined by the amount of years service with the scheme and the members final pensionable salary as defined by the scheme.
If your enquiry relates to your entitlement to a public sector pension we recommend that you contact your superannuation department in the first instance.
