Age Action and the ICA welcomes Dáil vote on Pension Inequities

Orla O’Connor of the National Women’s Council, Marie O’Toole of the Irish Countywomen’s Association and Lorraine Fitzsimons of Age Action urging support for our petition for a fair State Pension.

Age Action and the ICA welcomes today’s decision of the Dáil to reverse the changes introduced in 2012 to how the State Contributory Pension is administered.  Today’s decision will begin the process of restoring pension entitlements to older people who had been denied them by a bureaucratic mechanism designed to save money at the expense of older people who had contributed to the country and the system.  These changes have meant at least 37,000 older people, 62% of whom are women, have been forced to live on reduced State Pensions, many experiencing great hardship.  This motion was an opportunity for the Government to undo the harm done in 2012.  . 

Age Action would like to thank Irish Country Women’s Association and the National Women’s Council of Ireland who have also campaigned for today’s decision.
