Estimates of income whilst on half pay (suffice to say each case is different and these figures are a guide only):
- Officer with net pay of 1600 per month. £800 (minimum) half pay + £314 ESA + £416 Group Insurance (if in it) = £1530 or 95% of net pay.
- Officer with net pay of £2100 per month. £1050 (minimum) half pay + £314 + £546 = £1910 or 91% of net pay
- Officer with net pay of £2800 per month. £1400 half pay + £314 + £800 = £2514 or 90% of net pay.
The half pay figures are likely to be higher because the work income benefits from a much bigger proportion of the tax free personal income tax allowance.
The Unsocial Hours Allowance payments are covered in the Group Insurance but have not been included in the above estimates. Contact a fed rep for details of how to claim.
