Sejm: Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on the "Pension plus" programme

During the 79th sitting of the Sejm, the Prime Minister appealed for unanimous support for the additional funding for pensioners and retirees, the Pension plus programme. In accordance with the project presented by the government, this year, all pensioners will receive an 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 over 9.8 million seniors, including 7 million retired persons and over 2.5 million other pensioners.

The Head of Government pointed out that in order to improve the situation of pensioners and their financial safety, in 2019, a triple action for seniors is organized for the first time for 30 years: valorisation of the amount of pensions, reduced PIT and Pensions plus benefit. As he added, through this financial reinforcement, the government wants to guarantee a dignified autumn of life.

It is a fundamental programme for us, a social programme. That is why I ask you to take into consideration the well-being of citizens and support this programme regardless of the political party you belong to said the Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

The benefit will be granted to beneficiaries of the common insurance system, farmers in 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.
