Estimate of Pension Benefits

Please note that requests for statements are processed in order of date received with priority attaching to proposed retirements in the current school year.

The current processing time for statement requests is up to 3 months when all the information has been provided.

Statement requests for proposed retirement in future academic years will take considerably longer. During the peak summer months the processing of actual retirement applications received is awarded a higher priority than the issue of statements of benefits. This approach is necessary due to limited staffing resources and to ensure that benefits for those retiring are processed in a timely manner.


This page is for teachers in primary, secondary, community and comprehensive schools. A statement is an estimate of your benefits.
