A new retro package for 1,5 million. retirees is launched for the period from March to June.
According to the "Free Press of Sunday", the amounts locked in for retroactive increases in pensions reach 3.500 euro, while court decisions may lead to even larger amounts.
According to the same publication of the "Free Press", that lot is retroactively entitled 5 categories of retirees. These categories are as follows:
The first category of retroactive and pension increases concerns public and military retirees who have retired from 1/1/2019 and after. According to official data of e-EFKA, the 2019 submitted 13.180 new retirement applications. All have been or are being awarded pensions under the Katruggalo law (N. 4387) while to retirees with over 30 years of insurance is recalculated with the improved amounts of the Vroutsi law (N. 4670) effective from October 2019. Retirees who have over 30 years will receive the increases resulting from the recalculation with the April pension paid after the 22 Of March, while in the May pension paid in April, they are expected to have retroactive increases as well 17 months, that is, from October 2019 until March March 2021.
The second category of retrospectives concerns the recalculation of pensions for retirees who have left at the request of 13/5/2016 to 30/9/2019 (except the State for its applications 2019). Almost 250.000 of these pensions have over 30 years of insurance and will have increases with the recalculation of the law 4670. The aim of e-EFKA is to provide the increases with the May pension paid after 20 April and May with the June pension to be given and the retrospectives that will be for 18 months, that is, from October 2019 until the April pension 2021.
The third category of retrospectives concerns older retirees, that is, those who had received pensions before May 2016 and then recalculated under the provisions of the Katruggalo law, either they had above or below 30 years. Retirees who have over 30 years will be recalculated and will have increases with the replacement rates of the Vroutsi law. For this category, e-EFKA is considering making payments from June onwards, due to the complexity of the recalculation and the mechanism of personal disputes. It is estimated that for 200.000 pensioners the increases of the new law will go into the pocket retroactively from October 2019 until the payment of their new pension. In any case the old ones will probably see the increases in the June pension to be paid in May and the retroactive ones with the July pension.
The fourth category of retrospectives concerns retirees who have been entitled to promotion to a higher rank while retired.! It is over than 3.000 retirement lawsuits that receive increases and retroactively due to the recalculation of their pension with a higher degree than the one calculated their initial pension. The first of these decisions issued by the Court of Auditors is that the promotion to a higher degree is given after retirement, while this was done only during retirement. That is, while the lieutenant colonel was coming out with the colonel's pension, now with the court decisions that have been issued a retired retired colonel gets promotion with retired brigadier. These decisions will be executed as he stated in "ET" competent executive of e-EFKA as they are final. The resulting amounts exceed 25.000 euro.
The fifth category of retrospectives concerns over 1 million. State pensioners, of IKA, DEKO funds, banks and other entities that are expected to lock in the near future the returns of unconstitutional reductions in the supplementary pensions and other deductions regarding the pensions of the State (e.g. EAS). The crucial decisions will be taken with the adjourned trial of the Court of Auditors in mid-March and the decision of the CoC in May.
