Estimator Tool







The Single Scheme Estimator Tool is a spreadsheet based calculator designed to give active Single Scheme members a broad indication of the level of retirement benefits that they may be eligible to receive on reaching their Normal Retirement Age. Because Single Scheme benefits build up every time a member gets paid, it is not possible to provide a precise forecast of your retirement benefits. To be eligible to receive a retirement benefit under the Scheme, a member must have paid into the Scheme for 24 months or more.

The Estimator Tool in the table below will, based on user-inputs, provide Single Scheme members in the following category types with a broad estimate of their retirement benefits at the relevant Normal Retirement Age:

  • Standard Accrual members
  • Fast Accrual (Uniformed) members
  • Members of the Judiciary

The estimators are not suitable for members of the Oireachtas including the President; the Comptroller and Auditor General and other qualifying and designated office holders;
