Thread: Only 1,106 Public Servants Receiving Pensions In Excess of 50,000

  1. #1

    Default Only 1,106 Public Servants Receiving Pensions In Excess of 50,000

    the bad news is that they cost the exchequer €65.6 million annually. but the good news sure is that Brendan Howlin can do something about the worst of excesses here easily I'd say.

    Howlin counts the following cohorts according to the article in the IT by Gordon Deegan Brendan

    103 of them rip 100k+ a year
    20 make €90,001 and €100,000
    37 make €80,001 to €90,000
    48 make €70,001 to €80,000
    260 make €60,001 to €70,000
    638 make €50,000 to €60,000


    sure a drop in the ocean if you look at the staggering €2.23bn (2010) public service pension bill overall.

    but still adjusting the 50,000+ public pension bill a little would be fair game.

    However, the data only relates to retired civil servants, the VEC/Institute of Technology sector and seven smaller bodies and agencies. - Irish Independent

    'People in the private sector are getting paltry pensions because private sector industries have mishandled their money. . .'

    but the people in the private sector also make way more in the good times, at least that's how the story goes.

    50k is still a whopping pension. It's all tax fee, no? What are the stats for say those earning the equivalent of the average private sector wage? In terms of a pension payment which is not taxed if my understanding is correct, that would be an interesting stat and probably more meaningful in the context of finding savings in order to reduce our budget deficit.

    You got your massive pay increases and promotions because of the crazy spending of some parts of the Private Sector. But when it comes for cuts, you don't want to know the Private Sector.

    Yes.
    Cry your hardest now, it opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes and softens down the temper. So cry away.

    the best part is they have only paid a fraction of that into the pension pot. it's all courtesy of the taxpayer.
