UAE nationals working in Abu Dhabi’s public schools will have their pensions increased to 80 per cent of their total salary as per a new directive from UAE President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The Abu Dhabi Executive Council will spend more than AED 6.6 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.

It will benefit more than 7,600 citizens, and is part of the government’s efforts to contribute to better living standards and more financial stability for Emirati families.

It will also ensure public school national employees receive the same benefit as all government employees, and encourage young Emiratis to take up jobs in the public school sector.
