A once-off reduction is applied to gross annual public service pensions using a set of rates and income bands, which was introduced under the Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest Act 2010. The reductions apply to all pensioners. Proposals to alter the provisions are a matter for the Department of Finance.
