The government intends for the extra, “thirteenth” pension to be paid out regularly each year, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said. “We want to guarantee ‘Pension +’ payouts by putting it in form of a legal bill,” the PM stated. At the end of April, President Andrzej Duda signed a law of a lump sum monetary benefit to pensioners in 2019, dubbed “Pension +”, amounting to PLN 1,100 gros (PLN 888.25 net). There were 9.8 million beneficiaries to the extra pension in 2019. The total cost came in at PLN 10.8 billion.
