October pensions will be lower. Why the difference to the disadvantage of seniors compared to the previous month
Why will the October pension be lower?
As reported by the” Super Express “portal, the October transfer for seniors will be lower than expected this place in September. This is particularly acute at a time when we are struggling with record-high inflation, which is particularly severely draining seniors' wallets. Where does this change come from?
October pension lower?
At the end of August and in September this year, the seniors received an additional fourteenth pension. And it is thanks to the fourteenth pension that the benefits that pensioners will receive this month will be lower.
The pension to be paid in October will be paid in the amount paid after the March benefit indexation and the July change in taxes introduced by the amendments to the Polish Deal. It was on the occasion of the latter that the tax rate was cut from 17 to 12 percent.
This change did not have any impact on the benefits of people whose retirement pension does not exceed PLN 25,000 gross. In their case, no tax is levied since January this year, but only the health insurance premium, which increased to 9 percent.
In the case of higher pensions, the profit after the July tax changes was from several dozen to over 100 zlotys. The highest increase was experienced by people whose pension is paid in the amount of PLN 4,920 – they received PLN 121.
Another opportunity to receive a higher benefits will be March next year. This is when the annual indexation of benefits is to take place. At the moment, the government envisages an amount-percentage indexation.
The ruling camp's draft indicates that people with the lowest benefits, who are to get 250 zlotys more, are to gain the most.
