Fourteenth retirement: payouts start this week. Check if you get paid in August on which day. What about the fourteen in 2023 [22.08.2022]

It’s only a month and finally ZUS will start paying the fourteenth pensions, which with this high price for many people are a financial rescue, albeit for a short time. Everything is already known about the payment of the fourteenth pensions. The payment of fourteen will start on August 25 and by the end of September the vast majority of retirees and disability pensioners will receive the payment of this additional benefit.

However, it is difficult to predict now whether it will be closer to 11 or 16 percent.

  • August 25
  • September 1st,
  • September 5,
  • September 6
  • September 10
  • 15th of September,
  • September 20.
  • in September, in addition, in the uniformed system and in the case of people receiving allowances and pre-retirement benefits from ZUS
  • and in October – people receiving agricultural benefits less frequently than once a month.

Fourteen will be free from any deductions, e.g. from bailiffs. It will not be included in your income when applying for social assistance, alimony or benefits for people incapable of living independently.
