Departmental Pensions

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps her Department is taking to advise staff of pension options available to them in relation to added years or additional voluntary contributions. (253271)

Information on how to purchase added pension and additional voluntary contributions is provided to all members of staff on joining the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (PCSPS). This is contained in the relevant scheme booklet sent to all those joining the Department.

This information is also made available to members of staff on the Cabinet Office website (a link to this is on the Home Office HR intranet site) and the annual benefit statements sent to all staff who are members of the PCSPS contain details on where to find further information for those interested in boosting their pension provision.
