The data of the Central Statistical Office show that only 40% of Polish retirees assess their financial situation as satisfactory. This is expected to improve in 2022. Benefits will be indexed by at least 5%. In 2022, the thirteenth pensions will also be paid. There will be no “Fourteen” in 2022.
By setting the pension indexation rate in 2021 in 2022, the government did not anticipate galloping inflation and assumed that the index would be 4,89 proc. In the budget act, PLN 10.5 billion has been allocated to this for a raise for seniors. These plans will be verified in February, and the details will be known in March. Experts estimate that taking into account galloping inflation, the indexation of pensions in 2022 will be record-high. The correction can be as high as 10.56 percent.
This is how much pensioners can get after indexation taking into account inflation – we present the net rates:
In December 2021, inflation reached 8.6%.
Pensioners will be able to count on the payment of the thirteenth pension. In 2021, retirees, pensioners and other recipients of long-term benefits received the thirteenth pension in the amount of PLN 1,250.88 gross in April. In 2022, seniors although the supplementary pension will be increased, pensioners will get lessThis was due to the tax changes introduced on January 1 this year. Thirteen will be paid on the same date – in May with these benefits. How much will retirees get? This is not known yet, because the amounts will be known after the pension indexation rate is set – and this will take place in February.
