Pension revolutionised, pension hiked for people with disability and old age
During 2024, an increase in old-age and disability pensions is planned based on the calculation of the annual revaluation of pensions. This revaluation won’t just stop on the 2024 index, But this will also cover the current year, i.e. 2023, and have an impact on the disbursements for the next year. The indexation of 7.3% set for the revaluation of pensions at the end of 2022 does not represent a fixed value, and it is necessary to determine the exact indexation to be used to calculate the revaluation during the year.
Taking into account the increase in the cost of consumer goods already witnessed by the end of 2022, the index was Revised up to 8.1%, However, the payment relating to these increases will be credited only in the following year. In addition to the fixed index set at 8.1%, it will also be necessary to include an annual index to determine the amount of pension revaluation that will be established by the end of 2023.

- old age pension;
- survivor’s pension;
- disability allowance.
The revaluation is also implemented on the 14th month’s pay, and is included in those who get the increment in July. The amount of 14th varies according to the number of years of contribution paid and the total income received by the pensioner. On average, the amount fluctuates between 336 euros and a maximum of 655 euros. The 14th revaluation calculation applies to these amounts and affects the final value of the cheque.
For example, those whose contribution is 15 to 25 years old and whose gross income is up to 10,992.93 euros are entitled to an amount equal to 1.5 times the minimum wage. As a result,The amount of the 14th installment is 546 Euro, Instead, those who have contributed for 25 years receive 655.20 euros. In both the cases, the dues are subject to revaluation indexation, which will further increase them.
