Pensions: Senior Civil Servants

Volume 506: debated on Monday 22 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions whether bonus payments paid to senior civil servants form part of their remuneration for pension purposes. (315507)

I have been asked to reply.

Civil servants, including senior civil servants, have the choice of a pension provided under the rules of the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme or an employer contribution to a stakeholder pension. The general principle is that bonus payments are not normally pensionable.
