CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUTION

The term pension is a sum of money paid regularly by government to people above a certain age and to widowed, (widow) or disable people by former employers or financial institutions. It is also an amount of money paid regularly by a government or company to somebody who is considered to be too old or. While the term, gratuity, means the money that you give to somebody who has provided a service for you or money that is given to employers when they leave their job. There for being a reward for past meritorious services pensions and gratuities claim a first charge on the consolidated found of any government. Pension and gratuity matter should be treated with dispatch so it becomes inhuman for any deliberate delay in the payment or processing of retiring benefits. Some people that bother about the matter at all would admit that pension and gratuity are erroneously understood in Enugu state. And  so it is assumed that very little can be done to stop the abuse of the scheme by both employers and the law makers. And government has accepted that pensions  and gratuities should be regarded as one’s statutory right and should under no circumstances be reduced or with held except for grievous reasons well defined.

1.1  BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Government generally regarded as the employer of labor is well identified with the provision of pension and gratuity for retired civil servants in Enugu state. In the private sector of the economy however, pension is still regarded as a suspect work in much the same way as during the medieval ages in Enugu. Pension and gratuity provision for retired civil servants is financed by government through taxation, but in the private sectors premium, has to be set aside in separate fund known as funding for the purpose.

Contributions towards this fund is born by the employer usually as a percent age of payroll. The employee may or may not be called upon to contribute to the cost. These contributions accumulated with interest and investment income to provide the benefits on retirement . retirement benefit provision for employees , of the private sectors in Enugu state is optional, since there is no statutory obligation on employees. Those employers we set up schemes are rather cost conscious pension and gratuity are related to earnings and the most adequate type is one which takes account of both salary and length of services. This type of pension and gratuity arrangement is known as final salary schemes that is provided adequate pension and gratuity which takes into considerations earnings at the time of retirement. Therefore, there are a lot of advantages in placing a lump sum at the disposal of the retiree especially if there are some immediate bill to be settled shortly after retirement. Finally nothing can be compared with pension which promise some sort of livelihood  until death .This surely gives a lot of sense of security of a retired employee  who is used to receiving a regular payment in form of salary.
