I am informed by the Central Bank that no other Central Bank employment contracts provide for termination bonus payments. For clarity, a total of 4 actuaries in the Central Bank have phased retention payments amounting to a potential maximum of approximately 14% of annualised salary for the period 2011 to end 2014 when the scheme ends. No other such payments are in place in the organisation.
