Irish Independent: Your Questions / I have been laid off due to Covid-19 – what happens to my pension?


According to CEO of the Irish Association of Pension Funds Jerry Moriarty – whatever decisions you make now, the money you have paid in, the money your employer has paid, plus any growth, is yours. Additionally, your rights to that fund are secured by law regardless of how long you are not working and regardless of whether you go back working with that employer or move somewhere else.
