The Clerical Officer will be a member of the Single Public Service Pension Scheme, unless s/he is exempted in accordance with the Public Service Pensions (Single Scheme and Other Provisions) Act 2012. Full details of the Scheme and exceptions are available at http://per.gov.ie/single-scheme/ Contributions are deductible at 3.5% of net pensionable remuneration and 3% of pensionable remuneration.



If the Clerical Officer is not eligible to join the Single Public Service Pension Scheme, s/he will be a member of the Education Sector Superannuation Scheme.
