Written answers (Question to Public)

Officials from my Department are currently examining a request regarding pension increases proposed for An Post pensioners. As part of the decision making process further information and clarifications on issues arising from the request has been sought from the Department of Communications, Climate Action and the Environment.

Typically, as part of any such decisions due account must be taken of the overall funding position in the relevant pension funds and consideration is also usually given to the impact of pension increases on the ongoing sustainability of pension funds.

A decision on the request will be made in due course.
