To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment the Government has made of the potential merits of suspending the abatement element in all public sector pensions during the covid-19 outbreak.
To support the emergency response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Government has temporarily suspended pension abatement rules for certain public service workforces. This temporary change is only being applied where retired public service workers are essential as part of the Government’s response to Covid-19. It includes the temporary suspension of abatement rules in the NHS pension scheme, supporting recently retired NHS staff to return to tackle the outbreak.
