The Pensions Authority (previously the Pensions Board) is a statutory body set up under the Pensions Act, 1990.
The Authority regulates occupational pension schemes, trust RACs and Personal Retirement Savings Accounts (PRSAs) in Ireland.
The Pensions Authority's mission is to support a sustainable pensions system that will provide adequate and reliable pensions for retired and older people and that achieves wide coverage. We aim to achieve this by:
- Safeguarding the interests of occupational pension scheme members and Personal Retirement Savings Account (PRSA) holders through effective regulation
- Providing relevant information and guidance to the public and those involved with pensions
- Developing policy proposals and supporting the Minister for and Department of Social Protection and other government departments through high quality policy advice and technical support.
