In April, pensions will increase, 673,000 elderly people will benefit, details of the special fund will be revealed, the rule for indexation will change

In April, pensions will increase, 673,000 elderly people will benefit, details

At a time when the government is preparing for the indexation of pensions, experts request that the increase be made by reference to food inflation and not the general one. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Finance foresees the distribution of a special fund in the amount of 2.2 billion lek that will go to the indexation of pensions and 3.53 billion lek. From April, about 673,000 elderly people will receive some extra money in their monthly pension payments. The government foresees the distribution of a special fund in the amount of 2.2 billion lek that will go to the indexation of pensions and another 3.53 billion lek for the year-end bonus. Klajdi Bregu, an expert on the economy, said that when talking about the indexation of pensions, we should take into account that pensioners are focused on food and non-alcoholic beverages. According to him, this category also had the biggest increase in inflation. "When we talk about the indexation of pensions, we must keep in mind that pensioners are focused on food and non-alcoholic beverages. This category also had the biggest increase in inflation," Bregu declared a few days ago. As a rule, pension increases are made in relation to the average inflation rate of the previous year, which in this case was 6.7 percent. But experts demand that the indexation be carried out by taking into reference the inflation in food and non-alcoholic beverages which was about 12 percent for 2022. Amid warnings that the price crisis may not yet have peaked, the government also approved a change that allows pensions to be indexed more than once in a year. 

The government announced another bonus for pensioners

Meanwhile, some time ago, Prime Minister Edi Rama promised yesterday another bonus for pensioners in our country. In a post on social networks, the head of government writes that with the receipt of the first installment of the extraordinary tax on energy exporters in April, the next bonus for pensioners will be scheduled. According to Rama, currently all pensioners are receiving the bonus of the Great Package of 8 billion Lek. "These days, all pensioners are receiving the Big Package bonus as promised, and we wish them to have the best and healthiest year, which has just started. With the receipt of the first installment of the extraordinary tax on energy exporters in April, we will program another bonus for pensioners, so that the burden of war inflation for them continues to be as little sensitive as possible", writes Rama. The latter declared a few days ago that the extraordinary tax that will be collected from the 3 large energy producers will be returned directly to financial support for the most needy people. "We will do our best to increase the income for pensioners in the first place. For this reason, despite the budgetary difficulty, we will give a support package to all pensioners. For this reason, we have decided to impose an extraordinary tax on the 3 big energy producers, who are profiting incredibly because they were lucky enough to have the price go up. Let's take a portion of that profit and give it back first to those who are most in need. We will distribute it directly, we will not take it to roads or bridges, but we will return it directly to direct financial support, to cope with the inflation of the war".
