Civil service rules regarding employees' pensions

Civil service rules regarding employees' pensions

In general, a pension is a system of providing income to people who do not receive a regular income from employment. There should be no confusion between the money paid at the time of employment and the pension; The first is paid in regular installments, while the second is paid in lump sum.

Terms such as retirement plan or retirement pay indicate the meaning of the pension approved at retirement. Retirement plans may be formulated by employers, insurance companies, government or other organizations such as employers' unions or labor unions. These are known as retirement plans in the United States, pension schemes in the UK and Ireland, and superannuation plans or super (retirement pay) in Australia or New Zealand. Retirement pensions are usually in the form of a guaranteed lifetime annuity, thus providing protection against the risk of longevity.

A pension formulated by an employer in the interest of an employee is commonly referred to as a business or employer pension. Labor unions, the government or other organizations also provide money for pensions. Business pension is in the form of deferred compensation, usually beneficial to the employer and the employee due to taxes. Many pensions also have the added dimension of insurance, which is often paid to the family of the deceased or disabled beneficiaries. Other mediums (for example, certain lottery payments, or annuities) may offer such streamlined payments. The term pension is commonly used to describe the payments a person receives at retirement, usually determined under pre-determined legal and / or contractual terms. A retiree receiving a pension is known as a pensioner or retiree.
