Pensions Issue

Dear Colleagues

Circular 47/16

Hopefully you are all aware of the pending legal challenge on the grounds of discrimination that the DPF is pursuing on behalf of its membership. If you wish to benefit from the outcome of this challenge, you must be named on the court documents that are currently being complied for presentation to the Tribunal.

It cannot be stressed enough, that if you have not registered for this, then the DPF cannot represent you, and unless the Government concedes, you will not benefit if it is successful.

Failure to submit a legal challenge to the perceived discrimination within the prescribed time frame may be conceived as you having agreed to, and accepted the changes to your pension, and there is no going back on that at a later date.

For DPF members, it takes a couple of minutes on the DPF website to register and you are strongly encouraged to do so – you have until 0900 on the 29th of August 2016.

Please ensure that you complete all the required fields, provide contact details, including telephone number, and tick question 30, which gives the DPF authority to represent you.

Non-members have the opportunity to join the DPF and pay the required contribution to the court case, or seek their own legal advice on this matter.

Please see the DPF circulars or speak to your branch reps for more information.

More details can also be found on the DPF web-site site via the link below:

If you have already registered you can still help us by spreading the word.

Thank you.

Jim Gillen

National Vice Chairman
