Isle of Man Government Unified Scheme (Amendment) Scheme 2015Human ResourcesIsle of Man Government Unified Scheme (Amendment) Scheme 2015

The Public Sector Pensions Authority is consulting on a proposal to make the Isle of Man Government Unified Scheme (Amendment) Scheme 2015.
The PSPA would like to take the opportunity to confirm that these amendments are administrative or clarifying in nature and NOT in any way linked to any of the proposed changes or recommendations set out in the Public Sector Pensions Joint Working Group’s Report - “Fairness and Sustainability”.

Many of the amendments are as a consequence of the Scheme being a relatively new Scheme in pension terms and therefore requiring changes to be made as the administration processes are put into practice.

A copy of the draft Scheme and further information about it can be found at the following web address: www.iomunifiedscheme.im/news/Pages/News

Public Sector PensionsHuman ResourcesPublic Sector Injury Benefit Scheme 2014

The Public Sector Pensions Authority is consulting on a proposal to make the Public Sector Injury Benefit Scheme 2014.

Following the implementation of the Unified Scheme (GUS), which sought to harmonise pension benefits across the majority of the Isle of Man Public Service, the Council of Ministers determined that a review should be carried out into Injury Benefits, with a view to putting in place new arrangements that will deliver an equity of treatment across the majority of the public service whilst maintaining a good level of benefits.

It is proposed that the Public Sector Injury Benefit Scheme 2014 will replace the Interim Injury Benefit Scheme 2012 and will provide injury benefits to those employees who are eligible to be members of the Unified Scheme.

A copy of the draft Scheme and further information can be found by using the hyperlink above and viewing the full consultation and its relevant link to the Unified Scheme website.
