Retirees over the age of 65 will no longer have to sign on for the dole to bridge the gap until they can claim the State pension. 

A new benefit will be announced today for thousands of retirees who fall into this bracket, although it will be €45 a week less than the pension. 

People Before Profit TD Richard Boyd Barrett joined Newstalk Breakfast to discuss.
