Pensions Council Research Programme

The aim of this research programme is to inform the work of the Pensions Council in relation to housing costs and retirement income adequacy. The work will be carried out over an 18-month period, beginning in October 2020. The research team will use two ESRI models (on housing costs and retirement income adequacy) to examine the likely implications of projected housing tenure and housing costs on the retirement income adequacy of future cohorts of retirees in Ireland. Funding for this programme is being provided by the Department of Social Protection.
