Pensioners are now receiving their second additional benefit this year – the so-called 14th pension. Everything indicates that despite inflation approaching 16%, this will be the last money for this group of Poles this year. Inevitably, the burden of attention and discussion shifts to next year: the expected benchmark for pensions, fringe benefits – and what is equally important – an increase in the cost of living, whose overall indicator is the level of inflation. It would be the highest in the history of the current pension system and would be around 13%. This indicator was confirmed in the draft state budget for 2023, which the government sent to the House of Representatives on Tuesday, August 30.
This amount results from the method of determining the indexing pointer. According to the applicable law, the reference point is the inflation rate from the previous year (in this case – 2022, because the indicator is set on March 1) and is not less than 20%. Expect wage growth.
However, when it comes to the fringe benefits of retirees in 2023, one thing is certain: In the spring, there will be the thirteenth retirement pension again. This is because this is guaranteed by applicable law – the law.
What about the fourteenth pension? Officially, there are no legal guarantees, since the regulations in force provide only for the payment of fourteen to retirees in 2022. However, the Minister of Family, Marlina Mallig, has repeatedly announced this The government is working on finding solutionsWhich will guarantee pensioners two additional pensions per year: the thirteenth in the spring and the fourteenth pension at the beginning of summer and autumn.
