Delegates from last year’s retired member seminar

Updated 8th October 2013

IMPACT’s Retired Members’ Vocational Group is to host its second retired members’ seminar in Dublin’s Gresham Hotel on 6th November. ‘Your Rights After Work’ will explore how IMPACT can work with other retired public servants’ groups. Top speakers will also outline retired members’ rights on pensions, the law, social welfare, health and other services.

Lunch will be provided by IMPACT and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and make comments. The seminar, which is free, is open to all retired workers who were previously members of IMPACT.

Speakers will include:

  • Former director of the Irish Pensions Trust Alan Broxson, who will discuss the relative merits of linking pensions to wages and inflation.
  • Jill Farrelly from the Citizens Information Board, who will talk about navigating the benefits system to get your entitlements.
  • Mairead Creed from the Department of Health, who will outline the department’s strategy for ‘positive ageing’.
  • Patricia Rickard Clarke, formerly of the Law Reform Commission who will discuss new legislation, which will replace the wards of court system with a new legal framework.

IMPACT speakers include Edwina Jones and Brian Burke of the IMPACT Retired Members’ Vocational Group, IMPACT general secretary Shay Cody, deputy general secretary Kevin Callinan and national secretary Paddy Keating.
