Application for Early Release of Pension Benefits on Compassionate Grounds from a former Employee of Resources


Consideration was given to the joint report of the Corporate Director Resources and the Human Resources Advice and Support Manager (for copy see file of Minutes).


Members discussed the application at length, and in response to a question from Councillor Armstrong the Committee was informed that the recommendation in the report was determined by the cost to the authority. In reaching their decision Members determined the application based on the circumstances of the individual in line with the criteria set out in the report.


Following discussion it was Resolved:


That in view of the individual’s circumstances the application for the early release of pension benefits on compassionate grounds be granted with no reductions (option 6(b) in the report).
