FF COUNCILLOR WANTS FULL PENSION FOR WEXFORD PEOPLE

A Wexford Councillor is launching a campaign for the restoration of the full old age pension for those reaching sixty six since 2012.

In the budget that year a change in the qualifying criteria for the rull rate of pension was brought in resulting in a growing number of people since getting a reduced contributory pension when they retire.

Fianna Fail Councillor Michael Sheehan is asking people to support the campaign by signing a petiton he is going to present to the Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar.
