Thousands of pensioners are due to receive letters shortly to outline what a review of the changes in rate bands for the State pension will mean for them.

Earlier this year, Minister Regina Doherty announced a U-turn, after Fianna Fail requested that a punitive change introduced by the previous Fine Gael / Labour Government, which resulted in many women who took time out of the workplace being penalised in their pension entitlements, be reversed.

The Department has now started sending out letters to pensioners to explain the review process.

Mayo Fianna Fail TD Dara Calleary has welcomed progress on this matter.
