Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The Coal Mine Workers Pension Act 1942 (No.4932) made provision for the establishment of the Coal Mine Workers Pension Tribunal. The main functions of the Tribunal were to administer the Pension Fund in regards to the entitlement of mine workers and their dependents, to administer the conditions under which the pension was payable under the Act, and to consider applications for the pension.

The Coal Mines (Pensions) Act 1958 set out the provisions under which a worker and their dependents could receive a pension and specified amounts to be received.

In 1996, the Superannuation Acts (Further Amendment) Act 1996 repealed the sections of the Coal Mines (Pensions) Act 1958 relating to the Tribunal. The Coal Mine Workers Pension Fund became a public sector superannuation fund and was run by a Board.
