Since Regina Doherty T.D. was appointed Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection, she identified that two-thirds of all private sector employees in this country have no workplace pension and are not saving for their retirement.
This means that many of these people will see an unwanted drop in their living standards when they retire. This paper is about introducing an Automatic Enrolment (AE) retirement savings system into workplaces to address this issue. When completed, this will be the largest reform of our pensions system in the history of the state.
An important part of this plan is the feedback obtained from people. So, please take 5 minutes to examine the full proposal which is available at https://www.welfare.ie/en/downloads/Automatic_Enrolment_Strawman_Proposal.pdf
Minister Doherty and her Department ask that any feedback, observations or queries should be submitted by 4th November 2018 and should be forwarded by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Minister Doherty has confirmed to me that all submissions will be acknowledged.
