IRSP Support the Stop67 Campaign

The Leinster House political cartel are to increase the state pension age from 66 to 67 in 2021 and then to 68 by 2028.

Ireland boasts the youngest population in Europe, with with more people of young working age than ever before, all of which contributing to PRSI that in turn funds the state pension.

There currently lies a €1.4 billion surplus in the Social Insurance Fund, clearly indicating there is no need to increase the state pension age.

The Leinster House Political Cartel continue to implement neo-liberal & anti-working class policies while continuing to appease the tax avoidance schemes of big business and expanding the profits of the few.

The IRSP support and join the calls of active resistance against the pension age increase, and go further in demanding the system is reverted back to 65. 

A state pension is a vital public service that cannot be compromised and left exposed to profiteering politicians.
