Agenda item

Application for Early Release of Pension Benefits on Compassionate Grounds from a Former Employee of Adult and Health Services

Minutes:

The Committee considered a joint report of the Corporate Director Adult and Health Services and the Human Resources Advice and Support Manager regarding an application for the early release of deferred pension benefits on compassionate grounds (for copy see file of Minutes). 

 

Members discussed the case and following a question from Councillor Brown concerning the circumstances of the former employee, the Human Resources Advice and Support Manager confirmed that the applicant had been advised to seek assistance from the Welfare Rights Unit.

 

Resolved:

 

That in view of the applicant’s circumstances and as there would be no capital cost to the Council, the application for the early release of pension benefits be granted on compassionate grounds with reductions (option 6(c) in the report).
