Determination of date from which additional pension should be paid


Central Civil Services (CCS) Pension Rules for super senior citizens. Once they reach 80, 85, 90, 95, and 100 years old, the pension/compassionate allowance paid to Central Government retirees under the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules significantly increases.

According to the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules 2021, "After completion of eighty years of age or above by a retired Government servant, additional pension or additional compassionate allowance shall be payable to the retired Government servant in addition to a pension or a compassionate allowance admissible under this rule."

The additional pension must be paid beginning on the first day of the month in which it is due, not when the pensioner turns 80.
