Q. I am trying to find out if I will qualify for a full State pension. I started working at the age of 17 in July 1977 paying full contributions until April 1993. I then moved to the US – but moved back to Ireland in April 2013. I am working full time since June 2013 for the same company. I am now 58 years old. I qualify for a reduced US social security payment at 62 years old – though not enough to retire on. If I stopped working at 62 years old, will I qualify for the Irish State pension at 66 – or a reduced State pension? If not and I need to work till I am 65 or 66, would that give me the full pension?
