If I am already paying into a pension plan, will I still get a State pension?

This will depend upon your individual circumstances. If you have made appropriate PRSI contributions, you will be entitled to get the State Pension (Contributory) in addition to the pension from your own pension plan.

If you have not made appropriate PRSI contributions, you may be dependent on a non-contributory pension. This will be means tested by the Department of Social Welfare and may be affected by your own pension plan. Further information is available from the Department of Social Welfare.
