Irish/Korean Social Security Agreement - SW125

Print page

No. The effect of the agreement means that these contributions retain a value to you even when you leave Korea. For instance, they would be counted as Irish contributions and would be particularly important if you should need to claim an Irish invalidity pension or widow's pension within a few years of returning to Ireland. Similarly if you did not have enough Irish contributions for State pension on reaching pension age, your Korean contributions would be added to your Irish contributions for this purpose.
