Re-employed Pensioners

5.11.1 Once the pensioner payroll department has calculated the level of the member’s pension abatement on rejoining it will not normally change during their re-employment. The level of abatement is not affected by an annual increase in the member’s re-employed salary.

5.11.2 However, you will need to complete box B or C of form CSP13 (see section 4.3 - Your responsibilities when re-employing pensioners) and send it to the Scheme Administrator if the person:

  • is promoted or demoted (either permanently or temporarily); or
  • increases or decreases their conditioned hours; or
  • starts (or stops) receiving a permanent pensionable allowance;
  • has a change in pay as a result of being on (or returning from) long term sick leave.

Note: If the member’s pay has substantially increased or decreased for any other reason than shown above you must complete a new CSP13 and send it to the Scheme Administrator.

You will need to look at your procedures to ensure that you complete a CSP13 on every change of circumstances. We suggest you include a prompt for HR staff on their Staff Advice Notices/Change of Circumstances forms.
