Financial comfort upon retirement

MY father retired from the civil service way back in 1988 and when he celebrated his 90th birthday last November, he achieved the milestone of having been a pensioner for the last 35 years – equivalent to the number of years he spent in service.

Not surprisingly, his current monthly pension is now more than his last drawn salary. But this is due to increments and raises in the civil service salary structure over the years which also positively impacts pensioners.
