Pensionable Remuneration


The worldwide pensionable scale of pensionable remuneration is used for determining contributions to the Fund and for calculating benefits and is applicable to all Professional staff.

Pensions are calculated on the basis of the staff member's final average remuneration, defined as the average of pensionable remuneration for the highest 36 months of the last five years of service. Benefits accumulation rates vary according to the date on which the staff member joined the Fund.

Staff who have an appointment of six months or more or who complete six months of service without an interruption of more than 30 days become participants in the Fund. A worldwide scale of pensionable remuneration, used for determining contributions to the Fund and for calculating pension benefits, is applicable to all Professional staff.

The pensionable remuneration of General Service staff members is equal to their gross salary plus any pensionable allowances (such as language allowance). The gross salary is established in local currency, but pensionable remuneration and benefits are fixed in United States dollars.

Beneficiary Amount

The actual amount a beneficiary receives depends on a number of factors, such as the length of contributory service, age at separation, benefit accumulation rate and Final Average Remuneration (FAR). The FAR is defined as the average of pensionable remuneration for the highest 36 months of the last five years of service. Benefit accumulation rates, which may vary according to the date on which the staff member joined the Fund, are described in detail in UNJSPF Regulations and Rules. Under conditions prescribed in UNJSPF Regulations and Rules, a child's benefit may be payable concurrently with a participant's pension, and survivor's benefits may be payable to a spouse, child or secondary dependant. The Pension Fund does not reimburse national taxes on pensions.
