THE civil ser­vant who mas­ter­minded push­ing the retirement age up to 68 is re­tir­ing with a £1.8mil­lion pen­sion pot – at 61.

Sir Robert Dev­ereux is step­ping down as per­ma­nent sec­re­tary of the Depart­ment for Work and Pen­sions.

The Ed­in­burgh Univer­sity grad­u­ate will get a lump sum of £245,000 and re­ceive a £85,000-a-year pen­sion when he leaves his post.

In 2015, Dev­ereux was paid a salary of between £180,000 and £184,999.

Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May is paid £150,402 a year. First Min­is­ter Ni­cola Stur­geon gets £151,271.

The in­crease in the pen­sion age will come into force in 2037, seven years ear­lier than planned.
