Agenda item

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

Minutes:

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

 

This application for the early release of pension benefits had been deferred from the meeting held on 21 July 2016 to obtain further financial information from the applicant.

 

Members considered the circumstances of the applicant and considered that the application should be approved on compassionate grounds but in view of the cost to the Council the early release of pension benefits should be granted with reductions.

 

Resolved:

 

That the application for the early release of pension benefits be granted on compassionate grounds with reductions (option 6(c) in the report).
