Czech Republic - Swift increase of pensions predicted - January 31, 2018

The pensions will increase in 2018 faster than in the past years because the calculation of their indexation will change and as of the beginning of the year, they will be increased by one-half of the growth in real wages instead of the current one-third and by the inflation rate. Due to this, the average monthly pension will rise by 475 crowns in January 2018 (with the old method the average sum would be 65 crowns lower). More changes are planned. The fixed part of the pension, which is the same for everyone and amounts to 9% of the growth salary, will rise from 2550 to 2700 crowns. The proportion of the pension that is set down according to the years spent at work and paid sums will be increased by 3.5 percent. There will be also a 35 percent rise in the additional payments to the pensions of resistance fighters and their families.
