High-earners to be paid more if States pension changes go ahead

News | Published:

MORE than 100 high earning States employees will receive large pay rises as part of the proposed shake-up of public sector pensions.

MORE than 100 high earning States employees will receive large pay rises as part of the proposed shake-up of public sector pensions.

Among them is the Bailiff, who will get an estimated £15,000 salary hike to compensate for the loss of the final salary pension scheme.

However, despite the pay rises, the move will result in significant savings for taxpayers, who will no longer have to contribute 20.8% of the Bailiff and Deputy Bailiff's salary into their pension fund.

It is understood the Crown officers, along with HM Procureur, HM Comptroller and the island's three judges, will be included in the new scheme despite not being represented during negotiations.
