Environment Agency Pension Regulations

Back to all Motions

2003 Water Service Group Conference
5 March 2003

This Conference seeks to change the law to ensure all unmarried partners receive the same benefits through the Environment Pension Scheme as married couples.

Since the introduction of the Scheme Society has changed and the pension regulations should be urgently reviewed and amended to reflect these demographic changes.

In today’s society there is no reason why unmarried couples should not received the same benefits as married couples.

This motion calls upon Water and Environment Service Group Executive to use its influence with Government to ensure these changes are brought about as a matter of urgency.
