Was delighted to hear Justin Moran - Age Action Ireland talk about this subject on RTE radio during the week. Topic is one close to many peoples hearts as they wind their way out of the financial issues of the "lost decade" and try and move on. https://www.ageaction.ie/news/2016/11/25/age-action-calls-abolition-mandatory-retirement It is time to talk dirty on pensions and the retirement age, instead of kicking the can down the road when the State pension age changes. I am not an expert by any means on pensions however I do support a right to work till when ever one please's. I want to decide when to pack it in and when I have enough service built up, not because I reach a certain age of 65.
