Enhancing your retirement benefits

Depending on the type of arrangement you have, there are a number of ways to enhance your benefits.

If you are a member of an occupational pension scheme in the public or private sector you can pay additional voluntary contributions.

If you have a personal pension or PRSA you can increase the level of contributions you are making or take out a new arrangement.
