2008 Change in the early retirement for men

On 28.03.2008 The Parliament accepted the amendment to the regulation about the pension from the Social Insurance Institution Fund. Amendment adapted the regulations to the sentence of the Constitutional Tribunal from October 2007 which stated that women’s’ privilege in establishing rights to the earlier retirement for women and men is a violation of the equality rule.

Before the amendment the regulations stipulated women’s’ right to the earlier retirement if a woman reached the age of 55 and had at least 30 years of contributory and non-contributory period. Women who were at least 55 years old, had 20 years of contributory and non-contributory period and were recognized as completely unfit to work also had the possibility to retire earlier. Men, on the other hand, acquired the right to the earlier retirement only when they were 60 had at least 25 years of contributory and non-contributory period and were recognized as totally unfit to work.

As a result of the amendment, a man can also obtain the earlier retirement if he reaches the age of 60 and has at least 30 years of contributory and non-contributory period and the recognition of being unfit to work is not necessary.

Amendment has changed also the rules of the informing about the hypothetical amount of the future pension which till now was calculated only upon the insured’s current balance. Amendment puts on ZUS the obligation of giving the amount calculated according to the above method as well as the amount calculated on the basis of the future incomes.

New regulations stipulate also the possibility of demanding from ZUS unduly collected contributions during the period of ten years. Before the amendment this period was only five years.
