The employer will add almost double the amount. will add to each employee 1.5% but not more than 4%. This means that the employee’s savings account will receive 3.5 to 8% of the salary.

The state also adds a bonus for saving each year – This is PLN 240 per year that will now be credited to the accounts.

Conversion is not for all PPK savers!

According to the latest data, about 2.6 million Poles joined the PKK. Meanwhile, PLN 240 per account will affect the accounts of about 1.7 million people. Why?
