HC Deb 06 September 1909 vol 10 cc1069-70W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he would stats what would be the annual pension allowance of a teacher who, since he arrived at the age of 21, completed 35 years' service under the National Board of Education, and what would be his allowance for 38 years' service, including three years prior to his being 21; whether the Irish Teachers' Pension Office has power to commute such a pension for compensation, and, if so, what would be the amount?


The amount of pension depends on the class for which the teacher is paying premiums. A male teacher, aged 56, with 35 years' service after the age of 21, who has accepted Class A (in which pension is governed by service as well as age), is entitled to a pension of £53 a year if paying for 1 (1) class, £37 for 1 (2) class, £29 for second class, and £22 for third class. The pension is not increased for service rendered before the age of 21, and is not commutable.
