The Civic pension fund appears to have been started in 1930s. Units for pension savings were from employee wages through the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor, and after 1952 by the Comptroller's Department.
This series contains records relating to the purchase of units for the employees' pension fund. The series is comprised of calculations regarding expected pension fund contributions, and three ledgers detailing contributions, with employees listed by department. Information found within these ledgers includes name, date of birth, date of hire, pension premiums, termination of service record, and value of pension.
The series also includes correspondence regarding enlisted employees and records relating to the pension payments of civic employees enlisted in the armed forces during the Second World War.
