Upon leaving DCU, if you have less than two calendar years’ service, you may be entitled to a refund of your pension contributions (less tax). In order to be eligible for the refund, you must not be taking up employment with another Public Service body in Ireland.
To apply for a refund you must send a signed letter to the Pensions Team. The letter should state your name, staff ID, and confirm that you will not be taking up employment in another Public Service Body.
If you have more than two calendar years’ service upon leaving DCU, you are entitled to a deferred pension at retirement age. You should contact DCU six months before you reach retirement age in order to process your benefits.
