Who is the Pensions Information Service aimed at?
Any employee of Waterford & Wexford ETB (WWETB) who is seeking information relating to his/her pension scheme and/or other superannuation related matters. Please note that its purpose is to give a general guide to the pension schemes and does not purport to be a legal interpretation. Therefore it cannot confer any rights which are not conferred by the superannuation schemes themselves.

The Single Public Service Pension Scheme is a defined benefit, career average Scheme. Career average earnings are used to calculate benefits (a pension and lump sum amount accrue each year and are up-rated each year by reference to CPI).
