Q. What are the conditions under which Supplementary Pension is payable

The occupational pension paid to a Class A employee is based on the assumption that the pensioner also receives the Contributory State Pension.  However, where this does not happen, a supplementary pension may be payable under the relevant public service pension scheme to bridge the gap, provided that:

  1. He/she does not enter other employment which involves the payment of a social insurance contribution and
  2. Due to circumstances outside his/her control, fails to qualify for the following Social Welfare benefits or qualifies for such benefits at less than the maximum personal rate:
  • Jobseeker’s Benefit
  • Illness Benefit
  • Invalidity Pension
  • State Pension (Contributory)
