PRSI on unearned income December 2013

Question: I understand that 'unearned income' such as rents, investments, dividends and interest on deposits will be liable for PRSI from 2014. I am employed and also have a small income from interest on savings. Will I have to pay PRSI on this?

Answer: It depends on how much income you get from your savings and on your age. People under 16 and over 66 remain exempt from PRSI and are not liable for the new charge.

You have to pay PRSI on the interest on your savings if you are what Revenue considers a 'chargeable person'. Employees and occupational pensioners (under 66) with additional unearned income of over €3,174 are considered 'chargeable persons' and are liable for the new 4% PRSI charge. They will pay the charge under Revenue's self-assessment system (Pay and File).

You are not a 'chargeable person' and you do not have to pay PRSI if your additional income from non-PAYE sources is less than €3,174 and is taxed under the PAYE system. Generally such income is taxed by reducing a person's tax credits to account for any tax payable.

Deposit Interest Retention Tax (DIRT) is a final liability for income tax purposes. This means that if DIRT has been paid on your deposit interest you are not liable to pay further tax on this income. However if you are a chargeable person PRSI is payable on such deposit interest.

If you are liable for PRSI on your additional unearned income you will pay PRSI at Class K. This class does not entitle you to any social insurance benefits. People whose only income is unearned income will continue to pay Class S PRSI on this income as before and are entitled to some social insurance benefits.

Sunday night's jackpot was €2800 and draw was not made at time of going to print. Results of the draw can be seen at or alternatively, results can be viewed in next week's issue.


2014 is a landmark year for the Laune Rangers club, when we celebrate 125 years of championship football after Laune Rangers won the very first County Championship in 1889. It also marks the 25th anniversary of the 1989 Co Championship winning team. Preparations have now begun for the celebrations and we are looking for Laune Rangers memorabilia and photos that may be in the houses around the parish to display on a night of celebration to be held early in the year. More details to follow in coming weeks but as houses are cleaned for the visit of Santa, old photos and memorabilia may be discovered so keeps eyes peeled!

As part of our 125 year celebrations, you are invited to enter our very unique competition!!! Laune Rangers are offering all interested the chance to be a team selector to pick the team of the past 50 years! Entrants have the chance to pick what they think is the best team of GK, 6 Backs, 2 Midfielders, and 6 Forwards to have lined out for the club in championship football over the past 50 years. This is sure to create debate and discussions all over the parish so don't miss out on your chance to have your say. To enter, all you have to do is pick up an entry form from Falveys, Bunkers, Francie Sheahans or O'Sheas Bars. Entries cost €5 and completed entries can be returned to the above or to Mulvihills pharmacy.


Since January 2013, it has been mandatory for players in age grades up to and including minor to wear a mouth guard in all Gaelic Football practice sessions and games. From January 1st 2014, this rule will apply to GAA footballers in all grades.

Finally, Laune Rangers GAA club would like to wish all our members and their families a Happy Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year. Nollaig Shona daoibh go léir
