I agree with the above posts. I have also done the sums for Cost Neutral retirement for Class A and Class D employees using the cspension calculator. I am a Class A and becoming increasingly fed up with the job so it is very disappointing to see how much lower my pension is projected to be at age 50 compared to that of a Class D person at the same age. It seems to me that morale has become terrible in many parts of the public service. I have heard people who have been public servants for 30-35 years say that they have never seen it as bad. Money and pay rises/restoration (or lack thereof) are not the main issue. A Class D pension of 9360 as mentioned above at age 50 would be a dream for me. As I am single and frugal with no rent or mortgage to pay it would nearly cover my yearly living expenses and I would only need a minimal amount of investment income.
