At the beginning of the year 2012, the lowest rate of the two possible rates of contribution to the public service pension plan is used until the maximum level of contribution for that rate is reached. Then, the higher rate of contribution is used for the remainder of the year. Beginning with the new year, public service pension plan contributions recommence at the low rate, until such time as they reach the maximum level of the contributions for the low rate. Therefore, if you are a contributor under the public service pension plan and you compare your last pay in December to your first pay in January, you may see that you have paid a larger amount to the plan in December than in January.
