I am a public servant who until very recently had to retire at age 65. Because of this, to replace the old transition pension, I would be entitled to collect Jobseekers Benefit until age 66 when I would receive my State Pension. Now, because of the change, I am given the choice to stay in my job until age 70. My question is this — because I now have the choice to stay in my job, will I be entitled to collect Jobseekers Benefit? By the way, my public service pension is 50 euro a week so the Jobseekes Benefit is a necessity not a frill for me.
