The president of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, has assured that the “important agreement” for the pension reform is a success and has called for the recovery “carry over to wagesSánchez, who had made a visit to the Navalmoral de la Mata Home for the Elderly, also asked the opposition to “abandon the tension” to approve these measures. of the SMI on September 1.
According to the president, the vaccination rate entails an economic recovery that is already being seen, for example, in the reactivation of workers at ERTE. However, he warned that “it cannot be a full recovery if it is not a fair recovery.” In this sense, he wants it to be transferred to salaries, youth employment and “decent pensions”.
Last Tuesday, the first Council of Ministers after the break of the holidays approved the first part of the pension reform. With this agreement, the Pension Revaluation Index is annulled, so that the CPI will once again have weight in the calculation of pensions.
In addition, the reducing coefficients for early retirement are adjusted, with the idea of bringing the real retirement age closer, which is around 64 years, to the legal (66). By delaying it, system expenses will be saved, which will continue to enter contributions without having to pay pensions.
In this way, delaying retirement for one year will mean receiving an additional 4% in the pension, which can be obtained in a check of up to 12,000 euros per year, in that additional percentage or a combination of both formulas. Meanwhile, advancing the date will have a monthly penalty and affect more those who retire two years early. Pre-retirement adjustments could lead to cuts of up to 21% in pensions.
At the event, Sánchez recalled the importance of having reached a consensus, given that the last agreement dated from 2011. He also welcomed the revaluation of pensions: “retirees demanded decent pensions that would grow based on the cost of living “. That commitment, he explained, should be transferred to a legal commitment so that in the future it does not depend on the Government to revalue pensions based on the CPI.
The Ministry of Labor will meet on the morning of September 1 with unions and employers to address the increase in the minimum wage before the end of the year. Yolanda Daz had already advanced that this month will be when the negotiations will start.
At the moment it is unknown what the Government’s plans are, which in its coalition agreement established that before the end of the legislature the SMI should correspond to 60% of the average salary. To achieve this, it should be between 1,011 and 1,049 euros in 2023.
