Single Scheme 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.

The outputs from the Estimator Tool are not a guarantee of the retirement benefits payable at your normal retirement age and are not intended to replace the requirement for your employer to provide you with an annual benefit statement.

This Single Scheme Estimator Tool is for Standard Grade members of the Single Public Service Pension Scheme who are currently employed in a pensionable capacity in the Irish Public Service.   A Standard Grade Member is broadly described as a member of the Scheme other than any of the following: Members of the Oireachtas including the President; the Judiciary; the Comptroller and Auditor General and other qualifying and designated office holders; Gardaí, Members of the Permanent Defence Force, Prison Officers and Career Firefighters. If you are not a Standard Grade Member, you should not use this Estimator Tool as such members have different benefit terms.
