Research finds that Ireland has a gender pension gap of 35%

7 Rudi Kinsella The figures were released on Wednesday morning. Research has found that Ireland has a significant gender pension gap, with retired women getting an average of €153 less a week in pensions than men. A new report from the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has found that men get €433 on average per week, while women receive just €280 per week. This means that over the course of a year, retired women receive on average almost €8,000 less than men. Acording to the ERSI, the gender pay gap is largely due to differences in incomes from private and occupational pensions. 55% of retired men receive a private or occupational pension, compared to only 28% of women. For these types of pensions, research shows that lower relative years of work experience among women also increases the gap. The study shows a significant difference in the number of years worked by men and women. Read more: JOE.ie
