Data released by the Social Security Administration (ČSSZ) reveal that the gap between the old-age pensions of men and women does not show any tendency towards a reduction and the pensions of women remain about 20% lower than those of men. The level of pensions reflects the number of years the recipients worked and their pay from which they paid contributions to the state pay-as-you-go pension system. Women's pay is almost 25% lower than men's, as a result of which their contributions to the pension system are also lower.
