    No extra pensions for communist apparatchiks

    According to Polish daily „Super Express”, the Polish government is working on a plan to exclude former communist aparatchicks from receiving one additional month’s pension payment each year. This extra pension benefit is one of the Law and Justice government’s proposals to help Polish pensioners with every day expenses. The amount of pension received by retired communist functionaries is usually at the upper level, so it has been decided that they do not need the additional payment.
    The 13th pension was supposed to be for all retirees, irrespective of income. Now, as reported by Super Express, the government is considering changes as a result of which the allowance may not be paid to retired judges and prosecutors from the communist era, as well as former officers of the communist security apparatus.
