What is it? 

  • People in employment automatically enrolled in a pension scheme
  • Unless they are already covered in an existing scheme
  • Scheme run by State agency (CPA)
  • Employer and employee contribution
  • Plus support from the State
  • Pension account invested on DC basis to retirement age
  • Pot follows member (i.e. on changing jobs)
  • Benefits available in the usual DC way (PRSA rules)


  • Only 56% of working population have pension arrangements
  • And that includes public sector (virtually 100% coverage)
  • Private sector below 40%
  • A lot of people going to be reliant on State pension only in old age
  • Older people as economic participants
  • OECD says Ireland only western economy without automatic provision
  • Irish economy made up of small employers
  • Cost of small schemes, management burden disproportionately high
  • Eventual erosion of State benefits?
