Departmental Pensions

Volume 485: debated on Thursday 11 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many and what proportion of civil servants in his Department and its agencies are members of the (a) Classic, (b) Classic Plus, (c) Nuvos and (d) Premium civil service pension schemes. (240311)

Information as at November 2008 is as follows:

Number of staff in scheme

Proportion of staff in each scheme (percentage

(a) Classic



(b) and (d) Classic Plus + Premium Civil Service Pension Scheme



(c) Nuvos



The figures provided do not include employees who have elected to join a Partnership pension scheme or have opted out of the pension. Therefore the figures provided do not total 100 per cent. of employees currently in the Department.

It is not possible to differentiate between those employees in the Premium pension scheme and those in the Classic + pension scheme. They are not recorded separately on the pension records held by the Department's payroll provider and would be available only at disproportionate cost, if at all.
