Pension Management: Pension Administration Services

National Pensions Management provides pension administration services to members of the HSE Superannuation Scheme, the Voluntary Hospitals and Nominated Health Agencies Superannuation Schemes and to members of the Single Public Service Scheme employed within the remit of the HSE.

The benefits and terms depend on the applicable scheme and are based on the scheme rules set out in legislation and Government Circulars.

The HSE Employee Superannuation Scheme, the Voluntary Hospitals Superannuation Schemes (Officer and Non Officers) and the Nominated Health Agencies Superannuation Schemes are known as “Pre-Existing Schemes”. In general, employees who were appointed to pensionable posts within the public service before the 1st January 2013 will be members of the Pre-Existing Schemes.

New entrants employed in pensionable public service posts, on or after 1st January 2013, will generally be members of the Single Scheme.
