Written answers (Question to Education)

The person referred to by the Deputy is currently in receipt of pension but is not satisfied with the amount of service with an ETB that has been deemed non-pensionable for the purpose of pension calculation.  She met recently with the ETB to query the pensionable status of the service in question and she is not satisfied with the outcome.

The position regarding a review process was outlined to this person by my officials last month who remain available to advise on options in this regard.
