This is when the increase in pensions is expected to take place this year, the distribution in the bank will start from April 1, expert Kujtim Hoxha gives details about the bonus that the elderly will receive

This is when the increase in pensions is expected to take place this year, the

The Social Security expert, Kujtim Hoxha, has stated that the distribution of pensions in the bank is expected to start from April 1. In an interview for "SOT" newspaper, he said that even though April 1st is scheduled for the distribution of pensions in the bank, this will be impossible since, according to him, it takes time to complete the documents. Hoxha emphasized that the government should leave options for those who cannot go to the bank to receive it through the mail, while he emphasized that their own age does not allow them to perform actions in the bank, especially in rural areas, it will be more difficult. Further, Mr. Hoxha said that the government is irresponsible in the treatment of pensioners and mocks. As for the benefits and consequences that the application of this method can bring, he said that most people will not receive the service they need to receive and that according to him, this method has no benefit whatsoever. Hoxha emphasized that moving to another country from where they live to receive their pension means additional costs for them. He said that the state should think about how to increase the pension and not see how the pensioner will get the money. As for the indexation of pensions, he said that previously the indexation started on April 1st and it has been changed in the last two years. According to him, this year it can be done in April, but the increase will be less than inflation. Regarding the end-of-year bonus, he said that in the 2024 budget, a fund of 3.6 billion ALL is foreseen and every pension is expected to receive 5 thousand new ALL.

- Mr. Hoxha, when will the distribution of pensions in the bank begin?

According to information received informally, it is said that pensions will be distributed through banks starting on April 1. For me, it takes time to complete the letters and documents of the persons to withdraw the pension, which is impossible to start from April 1st, I think. Their own age does not allow them to carry out transactions in the bank and besides that we do not have the conditions in Albania, especially in rural areas, for them to use the bank card, because they don't even have an ATM nearby and it falls to me to go to a city or in a country that has There are also those who are not physically able to go to the bank. The government should leave options for those who can't go to the bank to get it through the mail, with the postman taking it to their home, while those who are able to go and withdraw it to the ATM.

-How will it be done?

Only Edi Rama knows this. It is irresponsible for the treatment of pensioners and he is mocked. They say pensions will increase, I go to the market and see that the prices have increased. This is the reason that today citizens think to buy a product that they want to buy in the market.

-What benefits and consequences will the application of this method bring?

Most of the time I will not get the service I should get. How will those who live in the countryside get it? This method is of no use. The move to receive the pension means additional costs for them. Through the mail, he receives it in full, while the ATM will leave a balance there. The pension is also accompanied by compensations and when a mistake is made by the administration and when he receives his pension he sees that he has received less and I have to go to the social security, because they are also done online today. This is how barriers and obstacles are created. The state should think about how to increase the pension and not see how the pensioner will receive the money. Today, pensioners do not receive the minimum wage. The ethical minimum should be 200 euros, while we have 100 euros, he can't even take the medicine.

- When will indexation of pensions begin? On what date will it take place as experts say it will start in April?

In the social security law, in law 7073 of 1993 amended by law 104 of 2014, it is provided that the government must issue decisions of the Council of Ministers for the indexation of pensions equal to no more than the inflation of the previous year. And this is not being done to the right extent as far as inflation is concerned, but it is also delayed. Previously, the indexation started on April 1st, and in the last two years it has been changed, it has been set at the limit of 8.6 percent on October 1st. This means that the government pays less and denies the right that the law recognizes. Those 10 months are left unpaid and pensioners are told to tighten their belts. This year, he can do it even now in April, but I say that the increase will be less than inflation, even if he does indexation in April, if he has to increase it by 10 percent, I think he can increase it by 3 or 4 per cent.     

- Is there a bonus for pensioners expected this year?

In the 2024 budget, a fund of 3.6 billion ALL is provided for the end of the year, so every pensioner is expected to receive 5 thousand ALL. But it is good that the employees also receive it, because they have worked for a whole year, because they need to be evaluated. The fund is based on contributions and I don't see it as a mercy, or to give it as alms, it is their sweat.
