Reinstate qualifing social insurance rates for State Contributory pension to the rates which applied prior to 1st.Sept. 2012
Why is this important?
Because i worked summer jobs from 1968 to when i entered the work force fully in1973 the Dept of Social Protection calculates by working life at 47 years total. This rule only applied from 1st Sept. 2012. Prior to this date had the previous criteria applied and my working life been reckoned at 42 years and my contibutions total would then be 1769, i would have averaged 42.11 contibutions per year. This would have been the second point on the averaging scale. Gross loss pension earnings for my wife and myself in over 10years = €14560
How it will be delivered
