Public Sector Injury Benefit Scheme
The Public Sector Injury Benefits Scheme 2015
The Public Sector Injury Benefits Scheme 2015 was introduced on the 1 April 2015, to provide an annual allowance to a majority of public sector employees (not including Teachers or Police or Judicial) who have suffered a permanent loss of earning ability as the result of an illness or injury that is wholly or mainly attributable to their public sector employment.
This Injury Benefits Scheme applies only to those employees who apply for an injury benefits on or after 1 April 2015. Important changes to injury benefits have taken place with effect from 1 April 2015. A summary of the changes can be found in our Factsheet Injury Benefit Scheme 2015.
