Can anyone tell me if I'm entitled to an Irish pension? I was born in 1945 in lreland and I left an industrial school and went to work for a tailor for five years I got cash in my hand and I haven't a clue if my boss registered me or payed any tax or insurance as I was very Naive then. I emigrated around 1968 and have lived and worked in England since and I get and English pension. I would be grateful for any advice. Thanks. Ps my original boss has passed away and I've got no records.

Anyone got any Advice or thoughts on this??

if your still living in the uk and your getting a state penshon you can't get another state penshon in ireland . if on

the other hand you were paying prsi out of your wages if you worked in ireland and your employer stopped stamp

money every week you could get an irish penshon or if you can get an address in ireland you can live here for 6

months or less and claim your irish penshon you can get it payed into a bank account in ireland . say nothing to

them about your income in the uk . further info on this topic go to the web page of the department of social

protection . hope it works out for you  . james fox .
