Just a rumour, but there is a rumour circulating that PTSB are winding up their pension schemes.
For those not familiar with pension schemes, that means that a lot of people, specifically those people not yet in receipt of a pension from the scheme - whetther hey be current employees or past employees - are going to lose a significant proportion of the pension they thought they would get on retirement.
This is no different to losing a chunk of your savings.
When this goes public it will be front page news.
To get a feel or the impact, imagine that the government announced that all those expecting a public sector pension would have to take a mandatory 50% cut in their currently anticiapted future pension when they retire.
