Aramis: For those moments when you need to spray away the unpleasantness Bluefearporn, the Year 2000 scam once again, the sky is falling, your data mined, the CIA calling, the asheep they be balling, everything about ye and she already known and tracked by the Masonic Facecrook Goolag three, perhaps it's best to set down your device and capture a slice of sincere life, where Eagle's dare and Owl's fair, a devil-may-care, unplug from the matrix, if you dare!

NI is imposed on us and I've always just considered it an additional tax. I'm 36 and I believe there is more chance of a UFO landing on my roof then there is of me collecting a pension because even if there is a pension in the future then they will continue to raise the retirement age until you are too dead to collect. One way or another people need to look for their own retirement and not rely on the government. You are right with regards to the points you make about the government their success is due to political pull if they had such great entrepreneurial skill they would own multi million euro companies not seek a safe and secure job in public office.

Yes Mr. Newman, you are 100% correct. Even when they die, their spouse will keep enjoying the full pension their husbands had.

Am I correct to add that once a member of parliament no capping is applicable!?

The point is that NI contributions are not a choice but imposed on us just like so many other things, so personal investments together with NI contributions to “take care of yourself ……” as you put it, from what is left of a net salary is certainly not a walk in the park. If NI will ever be a choice, (which is unlikely for obvious reasons) the story would be totally different, and a sound pension scheme or other investment in lieu of NI would make more sense. Only then you can take your care in your own hands. As to your “most politicians can't balance their own finances …..” are you kidding?? If they truly cannot they have professionals doing it for them, for free or some favour! And if ever off balance, rest assured that it would certainly lean in their favour!!....Just bear in mind past financial breaking news that will settle your doubts in an instant!

We live in a democracy and we have elections every 5 years do you honestly think any government gives a toss about what happens after they are voted out of office? Besides most politicians can't balances their own finances how do you expect them to balance yours? Take care of yourself nobody care about you more then you care about yourself.

Start working your butt and pay one tenth of your earning in Ni for 40 years....when you have done that, re-phrase!

If all politicians in power invested those millions paid in NI wisely, rather than squandering them as they deemed fit, they would certainly be self sufficient, and the money saved would prosper rather than loose value. What do you think privately owned pension schema do? How would they otherwise not only survive, but also generate profits!

No way! Your statement is incorrect. The maximum pension one can benefit from is two thirds of a salary that is capped by the government, and not the actual two thirds of one's salary if it happens to be higher that the set benchmark. Basically, if a pensioner's highest salary in his last working 10 years where higher, he would not actually benefit two thirds of his salary, but two thirds of the capped salary.

The problem is they aren't enjoying 'their' blessings. Much of it is from the younger generation today who will be left with nothing

The interesting statistic is that unemployment benefit has virtually been replaced by in work benefit. Are both the same?

It is called two-thirds pension for the simple reason that the highest pension is in fact of two thirds of one's last wage or salary before retirement.

Let the people enjoy their blessings instead being resentfull when seeing their PN Government giving themsellves a €600s weekly payrise.

How can NI be self sufficient if the money saved losses value every year due to inflation? Also, there no such thing as hate speech. There is only free speech.

Until we work and pay taxes and NI it is well OK but once we go on pension after forty years or more of contributing to the state then we become a burden.

The way the pensions problem looks is that we are heading for Greece. Poor old Pensioners. That´s how it started in Greece.

That is hate-speech. Blaming pensioners for the lack of opportunities of the young. The N.I. pensions were designed to be self-sufficient and it is only now that we are focusing on them because the Financial Industry has an eye on them to privatized them and make them 'for profit'. Then there is the fact that the government, under EU directions, has opened up the fund to become part of the general taxation and it is therefore it is losing money because it is being used for other government expenditures, So instead of improving the N.I. pension system, the long-term plans is to scrap it and replace with for profit private pension schemes that see the retirement age rise higher and higher, to effective stealing both the money paid in and a retirement, as the majority of the people would be dead by the time they qualified.

I wish they stopped calling it two-thirds pension.

Final salary pensions should be scrapped and that scrapping applied retrospectively. Totally unsustainable and effectively stealing the future from the younger generations today. Any pension payments should only come directly from the sum of any contributions made and any growth in those contributions if invested over time nothing else.
