Department of Education and Skills
I wish to advise the Deputy that officials from the Pension Unit of my Department have contacted the person to whom he refers. In the absence of verification of service from this person’s employer, the management authority of the school, his request cannot be considered by the Department. In order for the Department of Education and Skills to determine if the period of employment can be made pensionable, in the first instance, it is a matter for the management authority of the employing school to verify this period of service. I wish to confirm that upon receipt of this verification, the person’s case will be reviewed and consideration given to whether or not this period of employment can be made pensionable.
