In what sense is it 'earned' since none of them paid in anywhere near what they are getting ?
In truth, its money that was cheated out of the taxpayer
Just like that union man recently...

Any info on the age ranges of the recipients?
I'd bet that most of the higher paid 'pensioners' are well below retirement age
The State should not be paying a pension to anyone under the age of 60 / 65
Interesting ob. I'd like to see that stat too. Agree with the last sentence too.

A sizeable number of those on higher pensions will be the likes of judges. I suppose there will be folks here who think we should pay judges the average industrial wage. Personally, I dont begrudge paying good salaries and associated pensions to ensure that judges are as independent and competent as possible. The others entitled to 50K + pensions would be at the level of Principal Officer up to Departmental Heads. When you consider the impact of taxes on salaries above 100K the budgetary impact is not huge. These public servants are people with huge responsibility. They have a very comfortable existence but rarely do you see them with top of the line cars and the other trappings of wealth because they cannot write these off as a business liabilities.

Why not get your local TD to ask it then? Or are you going to continue flouncing around a website as fantasist bully and liar?
For someone who works in the Public Sector, you're remarkably ignorant about the pension rights of your superiors. Perhaps if you paid a little more attention at work, and didn't spend all of your day posting online.

He has been boasting here for months now that he works the black and pays no tax, and is proud of it.

Brings the wife out due to the tax saved.

Pensions need to be cut by between 15-40% depending on annual pension. They are now completely unaffordable.

Bertie Ahern should have his pension stripped from him.

Wow! Once again you missed the point. You wondered about a statistic and threw about garbage that you tried to pass off as fact. I instructed you to ask your local TD to ascertain the facts through a PQ. Then you descended into your usual bitchiness and bullying.

BTW can you prove I spend my working day posting online or are you lying again? Show me the actual working days in question or else show yourself up for the lonely, bitter, liar that you are........Good luck

PS pensions are too generous in many respects. How to cut them is a different matter!! Agree with your last sentence. However a true Public Servant would surrender a portion of his or her pension for catastrophic mistakes made.

So nurses, doctors, paramedics to name a few, who are highly specialised have not earned their pension....

Teachers, would also be included, was in the secondary school today for introduction day for my son, 10 am til 12:30pm we left at 1:15pm, every teacher who were outside the core subjects were there, each gave a presentation on their subjects.....

Did they get paid for it?

That's where the "Added Years" part comes in. Many of them get gifted 5, 10, 15 years of pension rights so they get to retire in their early 50's on a full pension.
It is not just the added years, it is also the non application of actuarial deduction.

Whatever they contributed to their pension, they earned and deserve - but no more
But the pensioners quoted in the OP contributed little or nothing
And if you telling me that teachers are overworked given that they get 3/4 months off in the year then I can only assume you are joking

A public sector pension (or any occupational pension) is taxed like a normal wage: you have tax, USC and pension reduction levy (the PS pension cut imposed by the FF government in 2010 budget, of between 6 and 12%)

So the pension a PS worker gets every fortnight has those three deductions taken from it...
Really? The pension levy is applied to the pension payments when drawn down by pensioners?
