The new system introduced to reverse the 2012 cuts in State pension have not made a significant difference for many of the people affected-that's according to Galway West TD Eamon O'Cuiv.

 

The Fianna Fail TD claims some people lost over €50 per week due to the cuts in 2012, and says the changes introduced this year have not brought those pensions back to pre-2012 levels.

 

Following a review of over 90,000 cases, he says only 30,000 have seen their pension increase - and in many cases, the increase is very small.

 

Deputy O'Cuiv told Midwest News that the new scheme does little to redress the situation for many pension holders
