Budget Emergency Measures Protect Older Persons This Winter But €12 Increase in the State Pension is a Cut in Spending Power

(Tuesday 27 September 2022) Age Action welcomes emergency measures in Budget 2023 to help older persons cope with the cost of living this winter. The announced double pension payments and the electricity credits are a welcome recognition by the Government that many older persons are struggling with basic costs like food, energy and running a car in rural Ireland.
