Rescind 2012 pension changes brought in by Joan Bruton and government which means women who worked summer jobs when they were 16 and paid stamps, then took years out to look after children are being penalised by having their contributions divided by 50 which means most will be down by €36.00 per week. Yet someone who comes into the country , or someone who starts working at 55 years or 56 can work 10 years and get full pension. very unfair.
Why is this important?
Because it means almost €2000.00 a year less in my pension. It is mostly women who are affected but there are some men who will loose out as well. I've lived in this country all my life and now I am being penalised. Can you help?
