Homer's Pension Pot


As Lin Homer walks away with a £2.174million pension pot (lifetime allowances anyone?) we should not be too envious as, according to HMRC:
"Her pension is actuarially-reduced, because she is leaving before retirement age. She is receiving no severance compensation.”
Additionally, as and when she starts to look for work again after a summer break, she will try not to take a "revolving door" type role:
"I will be fully sensitive to the responsibility and care that senior HMRC officials should take when considering the appropriateness of potential roles and organisations."
That's fine then, because no other ex senior HMRC has ever taken up a "revolving door" role!

In the meantime, I did try to call her to congratulate her. Unfortunately there is at least a 45 minute waiting time on the lines, and were I to send her a congratulatory card it would not be opened until after she had left.

Tax does have to be taxing.

    'We are all in this together'.
    Indeed! The awards system was well in disrepute before this farce and insult to all was bestowed upon her.
    Time will tell, what she says vs. what she does?
    Odds on, an appointment to one of what has reduced to The Big Four (see Wiki.)

  3. Worth every penny? A disgrace. If i want yo leave i have to wait years ro claim a reduced pittance that may buy a sandwich?
    We have to do work we know feck all about with no training with offices closing further to travel more expense for a reducing salary. While she can sit on a private yacht sipping pimms in the sun reflecting on the legacy she has left us. No she wont think about it, while we sort the mess thats left. Disgusting.

    2. A Dame in the honours list and over 2 million in her pension pot, it's alright for some. Meanwhile after 35 years, a promotion and good annual reports I can look forward to being on minimum wage in a few years. Thank you so much HMRC you're such a great modern employer.

  5. The latest rumours re redundancy packages in my office are that we are looking at a possible 6 months wages - has anyone else heard/know anything this? It will either be that or a move to UTC?

    I know 3 people currently off sick with stress, health related issues and it's only going to get worse, as many others on here have said...

  6. HMRC staff have been shaking their heads in utter disbelief at the decision to make this woman a dame BUT on the other hand the news about her "jumping" ship has not been a shock or surprise to the majority.The feeling is that the majority of HMRC staff have treated her with the contempt that she fankly deserves. The changes that she has overseen (staff/pay/terms&conditions,working practices,etc) have left staff totally disillusioned and let down by her and her "top table" cohorts. There have been lunatics running the asylum for years now.It's time that they were all dismissed and carted away for the good of all HMRC staff AND the country.

  8. Funny really. As Homer shrunk HMRC to 60,000 she grew the Senior[un]Civil Service number to 420. That is more than DWP who are twice our size. At 85k or more p.a. a go basic wage - say 110k p.a. total unit cost that's over 46 million a year to maintain her power base as most of these lot do nothing except squabble with each other. And they moan about size of the Queens staff? wtf? Think what you want about your supposed legacy Lin, 60,000 of us truly revile you and what you did.I doubt the general public thinks much better.

    1. Hey Lin. Why don't you go marry Fred The Shred? Only public relations disaster you haven't committed.

    2. Should someone who did such a bad job as CEO of HMRC (and previous public sector role at Birmingham City Council) and who ruined the careers and lives of many staff via the bullying which she endorsed, have been made a Dame??? What justification was there for it??? Fred Goodwin lost his knighthood for much less; this really does need looking at as it undermines the honours system for the deserving people who should get every recognition!!!

    3. Unfortunately making an absolute mess as a senior mandarin gets you promoted or a gong. Can't possibly admit the Eaton boys made a bad call on appointing someone. Shambles of a career though.

  10. The awarding of honours to anyone who brings the system into disrepute would be a matter for the Honours Forfeiture Committee.

  11. Pity there wasn't a cooling off period on gongs or Her Majesty could have reviewed this decision for what it was. The Civil Service equivalent of PPI selling.

    1. Lin Homer is the least deserving person to have ever been made a Dame. When one considers World Cup 1966 winners were not all given knighthoods, and others who have spent their lives voluntary working for the community good & frontline emergency service personnel etc etc have been overlooked for honours, this really did, and does, bring the system into disrepute. IF she had any common decency Homer would have turned down that part of her generous taxpayer funded severance package.

  12. Doesn't it just cheer you up when you get up at 5am to do a day's hard graft to fund the TAXPAYER funded gold-plated pension of a useless incompetent who achieved nothing in her career other than to cause chaos???
