Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government (Deputy Phil Hogan): Information on Philip Hogan Zoom on Philip Hogan The calculation and revision of pensions for former local authority employees is a matter for local authorities under the provisions of the Local Government Superannuation Scheme.

My Department issued a circular letter to all local authorities in August 2005 to advise them of the revised method of calculation of pension entitlement for public servants whose pensions are integrated with social welfare benefits. The revised integration system is being fully implemented by local authorities. However, there may be a small number of cases that are still being processed.
