    So if its part of your work, why dont you, and all your colleagues claim travelling expenses in your tax return seeing as your employer doesnt fund you?

    Or those retiring in 2025, such as Gardai and Prison Officers with a compulsory retirement age of 60. What happens in their situations can you say?

    Also, surely if a public sector worker has worked for 30 or 40 years (or less), then I would imagine that they would have PRSI entitlements, would they have to sign on the for Job Seekers benefit, which is only payable for 9 months.

    Not expecting you to know, but a few people I know in this position who can't seem to get a straight answer and 2025 for them is not too far away!

    In my business customers often send in a few people to evaluate our products and itís always amusing when the customer is public sector to see them all arriving separately in their private cars travelling from the same place.. often several hundred kilometers away whereas virtually everyone else travelling any sort of distance do so together in the one car.

    Yes, and isn't it also only payable if you don't have PRSI entitlement?

    Are you seriously expecting anybody to believe that a crowd who won't even stick an ink cartridge in a printer without getting a special allowance for doing so are going to drive 120 miles and not get any mileage?

    Would you ever get up the yard. There's a smell of benjy off you.

    How many in the PS receive that allowance? And how many in the PS actually change printer cartridges, do you think?

    Who knows? Who cares (except the ink cartridge inserters, that is).

    What happens to them now? What leads you to believe that the existing arrangements would change in 2025?

    There's a special provision for anyone aged over 65 who is claiming Jobseeker’s Benefit - they can continue to receive it until their 66th birthday. Presumably this provision will be extended to the 67th and 68th birthday when the payment age for the State pensions is extended.
