ISME wrote to Minister Donohoe at the Department of Finance on the 29th of September on the subject of pension equity. See the letter below:ISME Note to Minister DFIN re Pensions Equity
The paper referenced is self-explanatory in setting out the very material differences that exist between public and private pension savers in terms of form of scheme (DB or DC); relative risk exposures; methods of levy of chargeable excess tax; additional superannuation contribution; encashment options, valuation multipliers; calculation of fund thresholds; tax treatment of additional voluntary contributions; fiscal burden and earnings cap.
