Add a job or a pension

What is the Jobs and Pensions service?

This is a service that allows you to register your new job or private pension with Revenue. A Tax Credit Certificate (TCC) will then be sent to you and your new employer. This will ensure that your employer can deduct the correct amount of tax for your job or private pension.

The Jobs and Pensions service is not currently accessible to agents.

Who is the service for?

You can use the Jobs and Pensions service if you are:

  • starting your first job in the current tax year, including your first ever job in Ireland
  • changing jobs and have ceased your previous job on Revenue records[1]
  • starting to receive payments from a private pension (not a Department of Social Protection (DSP) pension
  • starting a second or subsequent job or pension in addition to your main job or pension.

What you need to use the service

You will need the following information to add a job or pension online:

  • your new employer’s or pension provider’s tax registration number
  • start date of your new job or pension
  • frequency of your salary or wage payment or pension
  • weekly amount of the following DSP payments you may receive:
    • blind pension
    • carer’s income (allowance or benefit)
    • survivor’s pension (non-contributory).

Please also have your staff or pension number available, if one has been allocated by your employer or pension provider. This is also called a personnel, works or payroll number.
