Preparing for retirement


I will be retiring from work in 2017 when I reach 65. What do I need to know about pensions and other benefits in retirement?


When you retire at age 65 you can claim Jobseeker’s Benefit, which is based on your Pay Related Social Insurance (PRSI) contributions. If you do not qualify for Jobseeker’s Benefit, you can claim Jobseeker’s Allowance, which is means-tested.

At age 66, you may be entitled to the State Pension (Contributory). If you do not have enough PRSI contributions, you can apply for a State Pension (Non-Contributory), which is means-tested. You should apply for a State Pension at least three months in advance.

You may have contributed to an occupational pension scheme during your working life or you may have a personal pension arrangement. You need to contact the pension provider to find out exactly what benefits

Q. Can you think of any special circumstance when brain loss might be a good thing?

A. The latest data suggest that pregnancy selectively shrinks Mom’s gray matter to make her brain more responsive to Baby (“Nature Neuroscience”), says Laura Sanders in “Science News” magazine. In general, a woman’s reproductive history can reflect long-lasting changes to her brain’s health. “Pregnancy leaves signatures so strong that researchers could correctly predict whether women had been pregnant based on the brain changes,” changes still evident two years after pregnancy.

Further experiments suggested “the regions that shrunk the most - parts of the frontal and temporal cortices as well as the midline - are thought to be involved in understanding other people’s mental perspectives.” Perhaps these regions then become more specialized, helping a mother better care for a baby. The

Last week over 60 Norwegian and Swedish students and teachers marched in Waterford City’s St. Patrick’s Day parade as part of an enterprise visit to Waterford on the invitation of the Local Enterprise Office. The students (18-19 years olds) are studying a three year entrepreneurship program, this is the students’ third and last year and the Irish visit is the highlight of their year.

A full and varied itinerary planned for the group included visits to Waterford Crystal, WIT and historical venues such as the Medieval Museum. The trip also featured a dinner in Dooley’s Hotel on Thursday evening, hosted by the Local Enterprise Office. The menu was sourced principally from local foods and constituted a ‘celebration’ of Waterford food production.

The most fun had to be the visit to WIT Arena where they learned how to play hurling and partook in

Straight to the heartburn!

Indigestion is a very broad term that refers to virtually any problem relating to digesting food. Most commonly, it refers to heartburn, gas or distension of the stomach. When heartburn occurs, the oesophagus (wind pipe) or stomach is irritated by too much acid, either from the foods eaten or from the digestive acids that are secreted to digest them. Problems can also be caused by underproduction of hydrochloric acid, which leads to an inability to break down food and hence give rise to indigestion. The body may slightly regurgitate the food and acids, thereby creating a burning sensation in the middle of the chest.

If you are suffering from indigestion or heartburn, the following digestive tips may be

“Mental” Friday 24th March at the Book Centre

Waterford author Orla Shanaghy launches her new book 'Mental' on Friday March 24th, 6:30 PM, in The Book Centre, John Roberts Square, Waterford city. The book, which is a collection of short stories, will be launched by renowned poet Mark Roper.

There are many non-fiction books out there about mental health. 'Mental' breaks new ground by using fiction to poke into the cracks in the human mind. The five stories explore our attitudes to mental health through the eyes of five very different everyday characters.

Orla Shanaghy has been active as a writer and blogger for many years. Her short stories were shortlisted for the Fish Short Story Prize 2012 and the William Trevor Prize 2007. Her non-fiction work has been broadcast several times on RTÉ Radio One's Sunday Miscellany. Her work has been published
