6.3.20 A person who has suffered an injury that qualifies under the Civil Service Injury Benefit Scheme who then leaves on Voluntary Exit, Voluntary Redundancy or Compulsory Redundancy is entitled to ask for Injury Benefit.

This applies to those who leave before their pension age and those leaving at or after their pension age. The usual process for determining Injury Benefit entitlement applies. Employers need to ask the Scheme Administrator to ask the Scheme Medical Adviser to assess the extent to which the person’s injury has impaired their earning capacity and whether apportionment is appropriate.
