Description:
As we head towards the new Millennium, the UN International Year of Older Persons is an important milestone in celebrating the contribution that older people have made to society in general. The Government in its Action Programme for the new Millennium recognised the tangible contribution and sacrifices made by older people in building the strong and vibrant economy that we have in Ireland today and also the equally important contribution made by older people in the community in passing on those values which give us such a stable and caring society in this country. The principles of the UN Year, based on independence, participation, care, self-fulfilment and dignity, are fully in accordance with this Government's programme of improvements in the social welfare code for older people. Within my Department, the Pension Services Office (PSO) is the operational hub of our services and schemes for older people. The PSO celebrates its 10th year of operation this year. It is entirely appropriate that the office now publishes this newsletter as our contribution to our customers and to commemorate the Year. The principal purpose of the newsletter is to highlight and actively promote the main social welfare and other entitlements which are available to the Department's pensioners.
