S.I. 298 of 2007

SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED CONTRIBUTIONS AND INSURABILITY) (AMENDMENT) (MODIFIED SOCIAL INSURANCE) REGULATIONS 2007

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)

People employed in a permanent and pensionable capacity in the civil service, local and public authorities and other public bodies are liable for a modified rate of social insurance ( PRSI) contribution. Modified rates of insurance provide cover for a limited range of benefits i.e. Widow(er)’s Pension, Guardian’s Payment (Contributory), Carer’s Benefit and Bereavement Grant.

In 1996, the modified rate of social insurance was extended to employees of Bord Telecom Eireann (now eircom plc) which, following the formation of a strategic alliance was no longer regarded as a public authority under the Social Welfare code.

These Regulations provide for the continuation of a modified rate of social insurance for persons who, on the 5th April 1995 were employed by eircom plc and who, immediately on ceasing to be employed by eircom plc become employed by Eircell 2000 plc and subsequently by Vodafone Group Services Ireland Ltd. under terms and conditions which provide that such persons continue to be employed in a permanent and pensionable capacity and for payment during illness on a basis considered adequate by the Minister.
