500 plus for married couples?
Originators of the petition to introduce the 500 plus benefit for married couples with exceptional long service. This is to improve the financial situation of many seniors, who are hardly able to tighten their home budgets, especially when we are dealing with rampant inflation.
“Considering that every third marriage ends in divorce, such additional gratification would be a clear signal that we support marriages in Poland,” he said in an interview with “Wyborcza”, one of the MPs in the power camp who wanted to remain anonymous . He added that he would consider excluding marriages without children from the allowance.
What do the experts say?
Experts are much less enthusiastic about this idea. Some of them, such as Dr. Łukasz Wacławik, believe that lonely seniors are in a much more difficult financial situation.
Prof. Paweł Wojciechowski pointed out that the introduction of such a benefit would lead to an artificial extension of the duration of marriages in which life actually ceased. In his opinion, this is not an idea that should be implemented and financed from the state budget.
