Adjustments to financial and social benefits

In accordance with recommendations made by the Finance Committee in November 2009 and decisions taken by the Council in December 2009, certain financial benefits have been adjusted with effect from 1 January 2010.
  1. An increase of 1.6% has been applied to the scale of basic salaries and to stipends paid to Fellows (Annexes R A 5 and R A 6 of the Staff Rules and Regulations, respectively). The adjusted amounts are available from the HR Department intranet site or from departmental secretariats.

  3. The following social benefits also remain unchanged:
  • Family, child and infant allowances (Annex R A 3 of the Staff Rules and Regulations).
