Superannuation Bill

Memorandum submitted by Helen Wilson (SU 12)

Please can I appeal to your better nature and ask that you don’t cut the compensation scheme which is currently being reviewed by yourselves in Parliament?

 I have worked hard for the Civil Service for over ten years and I am responsible for my young son on my own.  My son is two years old and I returned to work at the RPA when he was eight months old.  If you cut the Compensation Scheme this will adversely affect myself and my colleagues who if we were made redundant will find it difficult to bounce back as there are very few jobs in our area.

 Please consider other options to bring the budget out of its deficit.  We are frontline hard working people who are concerned for our family’s future.
