About Us

The Retired Civil and public Servants Association was founded in 1945. Membership is open to all retired Civil Servants and Public Servants from An Post, Eircom, Aviation Authority and Coillte. This includes widowed persons, in receipt of a pension.

What do we do

Our mission is to defend and promote the interests of members. To do this effectively we want to include as many retired colleagues in our membership as possible

How do we do this

We engage on our own with other organisations representing retired public servants to fight for pension restoration and improved services for members. We are working to improve communications and enhance the position of the Association and its members. We engage directly with Government representatives, making submissions on relevant issues Annual Budget policy and we pursue issues through the media. We are affiliated to the National Federation of Pensioner Associations and the Alliance of Retired Public Servants.


We are governed by a Council comprising 5 officers and not less than 10 other members. We hold An Annual General Meeting each May to decide policy and elect the Council. There are Branches in in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway, Sligo, Donegal, North-East, Mayo, Wexford, Waterford, and Mid-Lands. Each branch holds an Annual meeting. We inform members on issues of interest through bi-annual publications, our web site, www.rcpsa.ie, Facebook and through local branches. New branches are providing a social function valued by many members.
