The main objective of the Retirement Pension is to guarantee income security to elderly members by providing periodic payments.

Qualifying Conditions

  • Attainment of compulsory pensionable age of 60 or early retirement at 55 – 59 years.

  • The ILO convention sets transitional provisions to persons termed “late age entrants” to receive basic pension for shorter qualifying periods as indicated

Old Age / Retirement Pension Formula

(i) Commuted Pension (Initial Lump Sum)

formula = (1/580 x N x APE) x 12.5 x 25%

Where:

  1.      1/580 = Accrual Factor per Month
  2.      N = Number of Contribution months (credits)
  3.      APE = Annual Pensionable Emoluments (Average annual salary of the best three years out of last 10 years).
  4.      Commutation factor = 12.5
  5.      Commutation rate = 25%


(ii) Monthly Pension

formula = (1/580 x N x APE) x 75% x 1/12


Benefits Payable
