Submission to Minister on Pensions Restoration May 2015

On the invitation of the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the Alliance of Retired Public Servants made a Submission in May 2015 on the ending of public service pension reductions.  While not directly related to pension reductions the Submission also renewed the call for an end to discrimination against public service pensioners in relation to the application of the Universal Social Charge (USC). Private sector pensioners pay no USC on the state pension element of their pensions.
