The experience of retired employees (Pensioners) in Nigerian civil service before the adoption of a contributory pension scheme (CPS) has been described as rather imagine than experience. There had been reported cases of operation and administration of pension funds being endemically corrupt and full of unethical practices. This led to incessant pension payment denial to the retirees. This study examines the adoption of contributory pension scheme and its influence on employees’ commitment in Nigerian civil service. The study drew its sample among the employees of Lagos State Public servants using simple random sampling (SRS) technique. The data were collected from the respondents via Likert scale questionnaire and data were subjected to statistical analyses using Statistical Packages for Social. This study recommends that public service should consider strategic human resource management best practices in managing the millennial and all hands must be on deck to ensure that 2014 Pension Reform Act provisions are followed to the letter for violators to ensure that CPS is seen as a safety net for the retirees.
