What pay is Pensionable?

10.1.5 Pensionable earnings are the total of basic salary (or wages) and other pensionable emoluments. An emolument is any form of remuneration paid to an employee in addition to basic salary. A general description of what is (and is not) pensionable is contained in Appendix 1 to the 1972 Section of the PCSPS rules. Essentially, most payments that are provided on a permanent basis are pensionable (unless they are provided on an explicitly non-pensionable basis), whereas non-permanent payments, such as overtime, are generally non-pensionable. A more detailed description of what is pensionable is set out in Annex 10B.

Please note: Any change made to the pensionability of earnings paid to employees must be approved by the Scheme Manager, Cabinet Office.
