Retired Public Service – Increase Pensions ?

Public Service Pensions are in line for a triple boost in next year — writes Charlie Weston, Irish Independent, Monday, 10th October.  “The increases will see some retired Public Service workers getting an annual increase of €1,000.  The big gains for retired nurses, civil servants and teachers will come from a further unwinding of cuts to their pensions in the Austerity Budgets. They are also set to get around €500 restored to their pension payments from start of next year.

They will also benefit from Budget moves to lower universal social charge (USC) rates.

    Does getting back payments which were initially taken from you count as a rise?
    The Irish Independent doesn’t let the facts get in the way of a dig at the Public Service pensioners.
