People turning 65 in 2020 may need to claim social welfare for two years


The IAPF (Irish Association of Pension Funds), Ireland’s pension saver representative body, has described the situation as “highly concerning and demeaning” for older members of the country’s population.

“The fact that our government expects the 30,000 people who will turn 65 in 2020 to sign up for job seekers allowance for two years is nothing short of an insult,” says IAPF CEO Jerry Moriarty.
