Pensions put simply are the most tax efficient form of saving for retirement. People take out pensions to provide for their retirement and also as a means of extracting wealth from their business.

There have been over 350 pieces of legislation on Pensions since the Finance Act of 1999. At present there are some 530,000 people who are over 65 in Ireland. In 2021 there will be 770,000 over 65 and by 2031 there will be over 1,000,000 65 or over. The pensioner support  ratio (PSR) is currently around four people working to every person over 65. This is falling rapidly so that over the next 15 years it will fall to 2 to 1.(Pension board National Pensions Review, Oct 2005)
