Social Security Agreement Between Guernsey And Ireland Comes Into Force

The Guernsey government announced on Monday that a new Social Security Agreement with Ireland has come into force this month, effective from 1 October.

"This is good news for people in Guernsey who have also lived and worked in Ireland," observed Deputy Dan Le Cheminant, Social Security Deputy Minister.

He continued:

"Under this new Agreement, they may be able to get a small, part pension from Ireland when they reach the age of 65 by taking account of social security contributions paid in the past."

The Social Security Department is asking those Guernsey residents who are over 65 and have worked and paid social security contributions in Ireland as well as Guernsey to contact it to discuss possible entitlement to pension provision in both jurisdictions.

Besides pensions, the agreement also covers a number of other benefits, including bereavement benefits, sickness, invalidity and unemployment. It also sets out the rules for where contributions should be paid.
