The principles of agricultural pension valuation have not changed – KRUS confirms.
However, in In the past three years, the valuation was carried out on the basis of specially approved regulations and stipulated a guaranteed minimum increase for each pensioner..
this year The valuation is carried out on the basis of the applicable regulations specified in Art. 48a of December 20, 1990 Law on Farmers’ Social Insurance, and The minimum amount of the increase is not specified in the regulations.
From March 1, 2022, the amount of the basic pension increased by 7%, that is, from PLN 1.01363 to PLN 1.084.58.. The new amount of the basic pension is only the basis for determining the amount of the old-age / disability pension for an individual pensioner after standardization.
The amount of the pension / agricultural pension as of March 1, 2022 is determined by multiplying the amount of the basic pension of PLN 1,084.58 by the assessment index determined individually for each benefit (calculated and indicated in the decision to grant / transfer the benefit). In this way, as of March 1, 2022, all pension and disability pensions paid on February 28, 2022 (indexed) have been increased.
If, as a result of the increase (comparison), the amount of the benefit is less than the amount of the minimum employee pension (from March 1, 2022: PLN 1,338.44) – the Fund will increase it ex officio to the amount of PLN 1,338.44.
Up to PLN 1,338.44, the following will not be increased:
a) Annuities granted under Article. 19 Paragraph 2 of the Farmers’ Social Insurance (the so-called Early Agricultural Pensions) Act,
b) benefits, the payment of which has been suspended in accordance with Art. 28 or 34 of the Farmers’ Social Insurance Act, i.e. in relation to managing agricultural activity or earning income from work,
c) pensions and insurance pensions collected in conjunction with old-age or other social insurance pensions, if the sum of these benefits exceeds the amount of the minimum employee pension (also applies to receiving pensions from ZUS and KRUS at the same time), with the exception of survivors’ pensions Paid life in conjunction with a social pension,
d) Pro-rata retirement and disability pensions.
