(2 March 2021)  There is one week left to contribute to the public consultation undertaken by the Pensions Commission.

The Pensions Commission was established as part of a Government commitment to look at ways to ensure the sustainability of State Pensions and the Social Insurance Fund into the future following a sustained campaign by many organsiations including Age Action as part of the STOP67 Coalition.

The Sunday Business Post conducted  poll shows that 66% of people don’t want to see an increase in the pension age. That means 2 out of every 3 voters across all ages and political parties support the demands of our campaign. 

Your voice and work experience is essential to this debate. 

 

Click here to see what the STOP67 Coalition and our supporters stand for in relation to the State Pension. 
 
Then go to the Pensions Commission website have your say. Don't leave it to others. The survey closes in one week from today.

It's our future. #FairandFlexiblePensionsforAll

Are We Ageist?

(07 December 2022) 

1 in 4 people experience age discrimination according to Age Action’s new poll Are We Ageist?, conducted by IrelandThinks, with people who were unemployed more than twice as likely to experience age discrimination as people with any other work status. ​

“Age Action is working to reframe how we think, feel and act towards older people and ageing in Ireland, so we commissioned a public poll to understand the degree to which we hold ageist opinions in our society. The public poll reveals that most people in Ireland hold some ageist opinion with people aged 18-34 more than two and a half times as likely to agree with three or more ageist opinions” explained Celine Clarke, Head of Advocacy and Public Affairs at Age Action.
