– The amount of indexation of pensions will be known at the end of January, today forecasts indicate that it will amount to 13 percent. The decision as to whether it will be the percentage-amount ratio has not yet been made – said Stanisław Szwed, Deputy Minister of Family, Labor and Social Policy, in an interview for wPolsce.pl television.
It would mean a record raise for retirees, but it does would not fully cover the average annual price increase.
The Swede has spoken about valorization many times. Hardly three weeks ago he spoke in “Super Express”that the indicator should be 11 percent in 2023. – There will be no more – he argued then. It only took three weeks for more to happen.
The head of the ministry, Marlena Maląg, put it differently before. “Taking into account today’s data, the indexation of pensions in 2023 will be around 10 percent, and maybe even higher” – she informed.
Indexation index is the average annual price index of consumer goods and services in the previous calendar year (the so-called pension inflation) increased by at least 20%. real increase in the average wage in the previous calendar year.
As both prices and wages are growing this year at a double-digit pace, next year’s March indexation will certainly be record-breaking. However, we will not know the details until the beginning of 2023.
