Part-time service

Special rules apply if you have part-time Service while you are a member of the DB Section. Your retirement benefits are still determined by the length of your Pensionable Service and your Final Pensionable Earnings, however an adjustment is made to reflect your part-time Service.

The example below shows a member with 20 years Pensionable Service (five years of which was part-time, working half the hours of a full-time employee).

When calculating your pension entitlement, if you have part-time Service your actual Final Pensionable Earnings are increased to your full-time equivalent and your Pensionable Service is decreased to take into account your reduced hours worked.
