Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: the Government adopted a draft Act on the “Pension+” benefit

This year, all pensioners will receive additional pension of PLN 1,100 gross. The support will be paid automatically, without any unnecessary formalities and regardless of the amount of the benefits received. Additional pensions will be granted to nearly 7 million retired persons and to over 2.5 million other pensioners.

As far as the State can afford, we want to give each pensioner additional support in equal amounts said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki during his conference with Minister of Family, Labour and Social Policy Elżbieta Rafalska.

As underlined by the Prime Minister, this year marks the first triple action strategy for pensioners in the last thirty years. It involves a valorisation of pension amounts, the Pension+ benefit and the lower tax income explained the Prime Minister. As he added, It is important for us to improve the life of pensioners.

As Minister Elżbieta Rafalska said, the benefit will be granted to beneficiaries of the common insurance system, farmers affected by the Agricultural Social Insurance Fund, members of uniformed services, war-disabled persons and war pensioners as well as beneficiaries of compensatory benefits for teachers, pre-retirement allowances and benefits or social pensions.
