Information Circular No 6/2012: Pension Entitlements

By Industrial Relations Officer

Having received a number of queries regarding additions to pensions and entitlements while on pre-discharge leave the following is the position:

Personnel are deemed under the Defence Forces Pension Schemes to have been in receipt of such additions to pay e.g. Flying Pay, Account Holders Allowance, Irish Language Teaching Allowance notwithstanding that payment may have ceased during any period of leave immediately prior to discharge.

The specific purpose of this provision is to allow for the reckonability of certain payments where they cease during pre-discharge leave.
