SCHEME/ This is how much the increase in pensions will be that will be realized in October

SCHEME/ This is how much the increase in pensions will be that will be realized

The well-known economic expert, Fatos Çoçoli, has spoken about the new pension scheme. Mr. Çoçoli says that the government is working with World Bank experts in handling pensions according to the state scheme to give as much money as possible for the lowest pensions.

He says that the basis on which the indexation is carried out is the increase of pensions with the price level of the food basket, the goods consumed by a family of pensioners, including medicines and some basic services.

On the other hand, the expert also spoke about the indexation that the government is preparing

Mr. Çoçoli says that the pension scheme started reforming in 2014 but did not finish it. In the latest data, the Ministry of Finance has increased contributions to this scheme. But if it was talked about at the level of 680 million euros in 2016, as contributions now they can be at 1.2 billion.

From these 10 years, the scheme has doubled the income, but pensioners have not had their pension increased.

There are some factors where the government cannot double them, since the pensioners themselves are not as numerous as 10 years ago, at 540 thousand pensioners, the number of beneficiaries of the scheme has increased and it would not be possible for the pensions from the 130 euros that used to be seen to go to 270 euros.

Now pensions are around 185-187 euros. The changes have not brought what was expected from the reform and why is it higher compared to 10 years ago with 40% higher but not enough as an increase in pensions at the average level.

The government is working with experts from the World Bank in the treatment of pensions under the state scheme to give as much money as possible to the lowest pensions. The basis on which the indexation is carried out is the increase of pensions with the price level of the food basket, the goods consumed by a family of pensioners, including medicines and some basic services.

In the new scheme, the indexation of pensions is expected to be reviewed, this is what the government is aiming for with a new formula so that part of the very high pensions have another indexation, perhaps the general annual index that is obviously lower than that of goods of the basket.

And lower pensions benefit from the difference. A moment of misunderstanding and expectation on the part of pensioners at the beginning of April, that there would be an indexation, where pensions with lower salaries would have a different indexation, because not every level of pension can withstand the increase in prices.

It is higher than the average annual inflation which for this year is expected to be 3-3.3%. And if 4.5% comes out, a low, below average pension cannot be indexed to a high % in the conditions of our country, 30-40 thousand new lek.
