More flexible access to the state pension could lead to more inequalities in the system.

That's according to Age Action.

Yesterday the Taoiseach announced the state pension will continue to be available to people retiring at 66, but workers could get a higher rate if they choose to keep working.

Dr Nat O'Connor, senior public affairs and policy specialist at Age Action, says they'd be concerned at a situation where someone simply can't work beyond the age of 66, or in the case of someone who doesn't have a full set of credits towards their state pension.

He says all stakeholders need to have a say.
