Abu Dhabi Executive Council approved a new decision to raise pensions of citizens working in the Abu Dhabi's public schools to 80% of their total salary.

More than 7,600 citizens working in Abu Dhabi’s public schools will benefit from this during their retirement. Abu Dhabi Government will spend more than Dh6.6 billion to implement the new pension rate, paying the difference between the current monthly deductions and the higher 80 per cent rate for the entire service period of eligible employees.

The decision ensures public school national employees receive the same benefit as all government employees.

The decision will not affect salaries. Eligible employees will receive a higher retirement pension compared to the previous pension.

The decision will also provide new job opportunities for young Emiratis to enter the public education sector by encouraging eligible employees to apply for retirement.
