Civil Servants: Pensions
Laurence Robertson (Tewkesbury, Conservative)
Francis Maude (Minister for the Cabinet Office; Horsham, Conservative)
Recommendation 10 of the Independent Report on Public Service Pensions include a suggestion that abatement should be eliminated for those who return to work after starting to draw their pension. In line with this the proposed new Civil Service Pension scheme will not apply abatement, in respect of their service in the new scheme, to those staff who return to work after they have retired and started to draw their pension. The abatement rules in the current schemes will remain unchanged.
