Age Action Seeks €15 Increase In State Pension

The purchasing power of the state pension has dropped by over ten euro a week since 2019.

That's according to the charity Age Action, which is calling for a 15 euro increase in tomorrow's budget.
It says two more years of the same increase would bring it up to a third of the median income.
Age Action says the state pension should be automatically adjusted for inflation
