Pensionable service is teaching service in a secondary, community or comprehensive school that is:
What is pensionable remuneration?
Broadly speaking, pensionable remuneration is final pay. For a secondary, community or comprehensive teacher this will comprise retiring salary plus allowances plus supervision and substitution payment.
In the case of a teacher paying D Rate PRSI, the pension is 1/80th of a teacher’s pensionable remuneration for each year of pensionable service.
In the case of a teacher paying A Rate PRSI, the pension is 1/200th of the pensionable remuneration that does not exceed the maximum personal rate of State Pension (Contributory) multiplied by 3.333333 plus 1/80th of the pensionable remuneration which exceeds that figure for each year of pensionable service. This is known as co-ordinated pension.
This is subject to a maximum benefit of ½ of pensionable remuneration.
The lump sum is 3/80ths of gross pensionable remuneration for each year of pensionable service but subject to a maximum of 120/80ths. This payment is currently tax free up to €200,000.
