Social Protection | Contributory-related State pension applications in past three years
To ask the Minister for Social Protection the total number of pension applications for the contributory-related State pension received in each of the past three years to date; the number granted, refused and or pending; and if she will make a statement on the matter.
State Pension (Contributory) (SPC) is a payment which a person may qualify for at 66 years of age if they have enough Irish social insurance contributions. It is based on their social insurance (PRSI) contributions. It is not means tested, nor is it affected by other income.
The number of applications registered, awarded, refused and pending each in each of the last three years is shown in the table below.
