Pension Review

  • A Mayo Fianna Fail TD has criticised the Minister for Employment Affairs & Social Protection as pensioners in County Mayo are left wondering while a pension review is underway to consider their entitlement to an increase in the State Contributory Pension.

    A review in relation to post Budget 2012 band rates is currently underway.

    Dara Calleary says the changes brought in by the previous government were a disaster.

    Deputy Calleary says he fought hard to have the Government rectify these issues and a review was commenced.
