Introductory note. Benefits payable on separation from service include mainly so-called "separation payments", i.e. repatriation grant, commutation of accrued annual leave, death grant and termination indemnities under rules set by the General Assembly, in particular, decision 36/459 of 1981 and resolution 39/69 of 1984. The term "separation payments" has been used by the General Assembly since 1981. Earlier decisions make reference to "terminal payments" (e.g. resolution 31/141 of 1976).
