The coalition filed an amendment to the proposed legislative changes with which the Pensioners’ Party (DeSUS) wishes to raise pensions by 3.5%.
In line with the amendment, only pensions granted by the end of 2010 would increase by 3.5%, while those granted in 2011 would go up by 1.7% and all others by 1%. Also raised by 1% would be minimum pensions, guaranteed pension and the minimum disability pension. The additional pension raise proposed by the coalition would be implemented on 1 January.
