PRSI Refunds for Years up to 2010
Employees who are not in a company scheme but make their own pension contributions directly to an insurance company may be entitled to a refund of PRSI as well as income tax relief on the pension contributions. The relief has been abolished from 2011 onwards. This PRSI refund claim is often overlooked as it must be claimed separately through the office of the Collector General in Limerick and not through your normal tax return.
A simple claim form Application for PRSI refund in respect of Pension Contributions must be completed and sent to the Collectors General office in Limerick. This form can be downloaded from the Revenue website.
