I presume for the 1 year in question here that the sufficient PRSI stamps one requires to get employment benifit for any one year during their working life ? or is it dependent on whether you have enough stamps for a full pension ?But you will be able to draw the Payment for 65 year olds, between 65 and 66 (assuming you have sufficient PRSI stamps).
Anyone agree or disagree? Its the most confusing conditional requirements test I've read. I just want to be sure I qualify before I move to retirement!
Although meeting the requirements for this payment I was recently turned down on the basis that I was "in employment" due to my investment income.
You could try appealing the decision on the basis that it is subsidiary employment.
I also started to pay S class on investment income. Before this I registered as a job seeker to get A class credits. When I started paying S class I phoned social welfare to inform them, as I presumed I would no longer quality for A credits. I was told that I was still eligible to sign on for A credits and the welfare officer told me that they always encourage people to keep signing on for credits.I pay Class S PRSI on my investment income which, according to the Deciding Officer, means that I am "in employment".
Okay, so you were not registered as a job seeker and considered unemployed. Maybe then you could not claim your "investment employment" as subsidiary employment.Couldn't as I had been playing Class D before my retirement.
