The payments of pensions with compensation have started in June this year – informed the president of the Social Insurance Institution, prof. Gertruda Uścińska. The funds have already been transferred to the accounts of the first retirees. Further payments will be made during this month.
The plant ex officio recalculated the pensions granted this year in June on more favorable terms. This means that several thousand people did not have to submit any application.
June pensions. There will be an equalization of benefits
– Old-age and disability pensioners to whom these provisions apply, will receive the compensation of the benefit from the day on which they were due. The payment for October this year will be made in a new amount – points out professor Uścińska in an interview with PAP.
The plant will make payments of benefits together with the compensation from June this year. in October dates, i.e. 1, 5, 6, 10, 15, 20, 25.
President Andrzej Duda signed an act in mid-August that solves the problem of the so-called June pensions. The changes mean, inter alia, that the retirement pension in June will be calculated on the same principles as in May, if it is more favorable.
The act changes the rules for calculating pensions permanently, so in the future people reaching the retirement age in June will be able to apply for benefits this month without fear. The amendment to the regulations also covers pensions granted in June 2021 and survivors’ pensions awarded to family members who died after May 31 this year. It does not matter whether ZUS granted the old-age pension at the request of the insured person or ex officio (without the application, after the invalidity pension).
Benefits will be recalculated
Pursuant to the Act, persons who were awarded pensions in June this year will be recalculated ex officio, taking into account statutory changes – within 30 days from the date of entry into force of the provisions. This means that these people will not have to submit an application for a pension conversion.
The benefit will be recalculated and the compensation will be paid from the date of the entitlement to the benefit and its payment, not earlier than June 1, 2021.
In previous years, people who applied for a pension in June received a benefit lower than if they had applied for such a pension, e.g. in May or July.
