Calculating pension entitlement

1.  Where a client has worked in Jersey and in other reciprocal jurisdictions (including the UK), the pension will be a percentage of a full pension based on the number of years worked and the total contributions record.

2.  In the UK the normal minimum number of years for a pension entitlement is eleven out of a possible maximum forty-four, giving a 25% UK pension. Under the agreement with Jersey, if the aggregate of contributions in the UK and Jersey exceed the minimum eleven, then a UK pension will be paid. 

3. People close to retirement age, having paid contributions outside Jersey, should consult Customer and Local Services for details of likely entitlement.
