The then Minister for Finance made a Determination in this case which issued on 13 November 2009. That Determination contained a full consideration of the appeal and gave the reasons for the Determination. The individual sought a pension increase in line with the Benchmarking awards paid to comparator grades in An Garda Síochána. However, his pension is paid under the terms of the funded Dublin Port and Docks Board Superannuation Scheme 1960 (as amended) which has no provision for such a linkage. The Determination also advised that the matter may be pursued under Pensions Ombudsman's Regulations 2003.
