Intro Paragraph:

The RCPSA (Retired Civil and Public Servants Association) represents approximately 8,000 retired civil and public servants. We have strong links with like-minded organisations, including the Alliance of Retired Public Servants, the ICTU Public Services Committee, Trade Unions and Irish Senior Citizens Parliament. In advance of Budget 2024 we welcome the opportunity to outline our position as we work on behalf of members with a view to ensuring they are respected, valued, live with dignity and have a quality of life after retirement. This has become more difficult because of the uncertainty members face regarding income as the cost-of-living spirals.
