The government encourages people to work longer in retirement. However, this does not apply to all seniors. There are still limits on earning extra money for people who receive early retirement or disability pension. Worse, they have been lowered since September – writes “Fakt” on Monday.
“What does this really mean? ZUS will suspend the pension payment more quickly“- informs the newspaper.

The “fact” reminds that people who are on early retirement or disability pension cannot earn extra money without limitation. Their limits apply. If their additional income exceeds a certain threshold, ZUS will first reduce their payment or even suspend it. The limits depend on the average salary and are changed every three months.
“The next change will apply from September 1 – ZUS has just informed about them. And unfortunately, it will not be beneficial for additional retirees and disability pensioners. The limits will be lowered. Now, ZUS reduces the payment of the benefit if the additional income exceeds PLN 4,364.70 gross per month. On the other hand, if they exceed PLN 8,105.80, ZUS will suspend the early retirement or disability pension. From September 1, ZUS will reduce the payment of early retirement or disability pension if the gross income amounts to PLN 4,309.40 per month, and will suspend the payment at PLN 8,003.20. Such lowered limits will apply in September, October and November “, writes” Fakt “.
As we explained in Business Insider Polska, Every three months, ZUS updates the limits to which you can easily earn extra money for your retirement pension. However, they apply only to people on early retirement or, for example, teacher’s compensation benefits. Women over 60 and men over 65 need not be afraid.
