Superannuation Act, 1909

Superannuation allowances and additional allowances to future male civil servants.

22 Vict. c. 26.

1.(1) The proportion of the annual salary and emoluments on which the scale of the superannuation allowances to be granted to male civil servants is to be calculated shall, in the case of civil servants who enter the service after the passing of this Act, be one-eightieth instead of one-sixtieth, and accordingly section two of the Superannuation Act, 1859, shall, as respects such civil servants, have effect as if for the words “sixtieth” and “sixtieths,” wherever they occur, there were substituted the words “eightieth” and “eightieths.”

(2) The Treasury may grant by way of additional allowance to any such civil servant who retires after having served for not less than two years, in addition to the superannuation allowance (if any) to which he may become entitled or the gratuity (if any) which may be granted to him under section six of the Superannuation Act, 1859, a lump sum equal to one-thirtieth of the annual salary and emoluments of his office multiplied by the number of completed years he has served, so, however, that the additional allowance shall in no case exceed one and a half times the amount of such salary and emoluments:

Provided that, if a civil servant retires from the service after attaining the age of sixty-five years, there shall be deducted from the amount of the additional allowance which would otherwise be payable to him one-twentieth of that amount for every completed year he has served after attaining that age.
