More than 152,000 citizens who retired from 2012 to March 31, 2017 will receive more pension in 2018. Parliament approved 87 votes in final reading, the bill that will allow for two-stage valorization.
According to the project, people who retired in 2012 and 2013 will receive higher pensions from April 1, 2018, a year earlier than expected. Reforms are also set for those who retire between 2014 and 31 March 2017.
Beneficiaries will receive more than 300 lei. Disability pensions will be increased by 280 lei.
The project also regulates the granting of the right to old-age pension on equal terms for men and women. For valorization, almost 2 million lei will be allocated annually from the state budget.
