Quote:
By 2036, more than 40% of the workforce will be aged 50 or over, according to economists.

Delegates at the Active Ageing and Labour Market Trajectories seminar in Dublin urged the Government to make it easier for older people to continue in employment beyond retirement age.

Pay into those PRSAs people, the government pension will be worth diddly squat by the time we retire!

I don't think it will matter how much of a pension you have, so long as it is more than most other people. :P

Given that so many are seeing property as their pension these days I can imagine a fully funded PRSA will be a big help!

IF and its looking likely so IF 40% of the population are over 50 by 2036,
most people can just forget about retiring "young".

Too many obstacles are put in the way of people remaining in the workforce at older ages.

“Society has to end its prejudice against older people continuing to work beyond retirement age – if they wish to do so."

EUROPEAN countries are buffeted by two global forces: atmospheric pressures that, as it were, change the weather, silently transforming societies and the assumptions of public policy. One is climate change (a change in the weather literally). The other is demography.

The two have a lot in common. Both are easily recognised but less easily understood. Both are products of complex forces and unobtrusive influences. Both create huge effects from minuscule changes. A rise in global temperature by one degree or a fall in fertility by one point may sound trivial but, over 100 years, will make the earth unbearably hot, or reshape the size and composition of societies.

Below quotes are from :
http://arandomwalk.com/forums/index.php ... 1&#entry51

Quote:
At present fewer than half a million people in Ireland are over 65 - the official retirement age. But by 2050, experts forecast this number will rise to over 1.25 million - meaning one in every three adults will be a pensioner



Quote:
Raising the retirement age by a year or two can make the difference between the solvency and insolvency of pensions.


Quote:
the Society of Actuaries in Ireland has recommended raising the retirement age to 75 by 2050 in order to fund future pensions.

The Sunday business post reported that Michael Martin is considering raising the retirement age, it will be a voluntary thing of course! Sure wasnt there a report saying how ageist it was having a limit! Anyway itll help those 40 year mortgagees!!

Oh and it also reported a current shortfall on 50,000 pensions - did anyone else see this?
