MOJ’s update to the Employment Tribunal confirms to all affected fee paid judicial office holders the MOJ approach to claims for pre 7 April 2000 service. In our last update, we described the methodology by which pension entitlement will be calculated for eligible judges. We undertook to work with the Government Actuary’s Department (GAD) to develop worked examples to give a clearer indication of how this methodology will work in practice for eligible judges who began their fee-paid service prior to 31 March 1995. The GAD paper is published on this page for information.
