    The 14th Pension: Polish Prime Minister Approves New Permanent Allowance for Pensioners

    Mateusz Morawiecki, the Prime Minister of Poland, has taken a significant step towards enhancing the well-being of the country’s elderly population by signing regulations that introduce a new permanent allowance known as the 14th pension.

    The 14th pension, outlined in a document made public on the government’s official website, is set to be disbursed as of September. Under the new regulation, eligible pensioners will receive a gross amount of PLN 2,650 (approximately EUR 594). This allowance is expected to make a positive impact on the lives of retirees, helping them manage their expenses more comfortably.

    The regulations surrounding the 14th pension are designed to ensure that the distribution of this additional support is equitable and targeted. Pensioners who currently receive a monthly benefit that does not exceed PLN 2,900 (around EUR 650) gross will be entitled to the full allowance amount. However, those individuals who receive higher pension amounts will experience a proportional reduction in their payment.

    The introduction of the 14th pension reflects the Polish government’s commitment to addressing the financial concerns of its elderly citizens. This proactive measure not only acknowledges the contributions of retirees to the nation’s progress but also serves as a testament to the government’s dedication to fostering a more secure and dignified retirement for all pensioners.
