This Website gives Irish Civil Servants basic information on their pension entitlements in the form of:

  • Frequently Asked Questions ( FAQs) - with answers to questions about your pension scheme
  • Pension Contribution: Information & Ready Reckoner
  • Pensions Modeller - which allows you to enter details of your service and salary and your projected retirement date and work pattern from now until your retirement and calculates an estimate of your pensions benefits.
  • Circulars and Information on Public Service Pensions - recent circulars and key documents plus a brief overview of Public Service Pensions.

    The FAQs and Pensions Modeller do not attempt to cover all aspects of the Pensions Schemes but will help you to understand the main benefits of your scheme. If you are a scheme member and  require further information you should contact the Personnel Unit of your Department which can help with any detailed questions you may have relating to your own personal circumstances. Detailed technical handbooks are available on this website.

It does not cover the separate superannuation schemes for members of the Judiciary, Ministers, Dáil Deputies or Senators.
