Irish/Australian Social Security Agreement - SW87

Print page

The main purpose of the Agreement is to protect the pension rights of people who have worked and paid reckonable social security contributions in both Ireland and Australia.

The Agreement does this by allowing social security contributions paid in one country to be counted towards qualifying for certain payments in the other country.

The Agreement also deals with the social security status of workers who are sent on temporary assignments from one country to the other.
