Speech by P.. Vryzidou at the n / s of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs for: "Insurance Reform for the Young Generation"
"• If there was a government not so responsible, they would not deal with something that would be evaluated after thirty years. The New Democracy, Nevertheless, does not look at today, nor how to handle things by "stroking ears", but it is interested in the real interest of the citizens and especially of the younger generation.
- The new generation wants ideas from us, he wants courage, it takes effort, he wants diligence and he wants result.
- Different, to be in an existing situation, in a quagmire that leads nowhere, all it does is disappoint the younger generation and take them abroad to find work and secure a pension. "
ladies and gentlemen,
the quality of life of a country's citizens depends:
- from the care taken for the daily life by the local government,
- from the provision of services and projects it provides each Ministry of Government, but primarily affects his quality of life:
- finding a job, that is, that every citizen has a job,
- to be at a high level of remuneration,
- to have security in pensions and
- pensions to be decent for a decent living.
A government, Well, which is of interest to the citizens must emphasize and deal particularly with these areas.
The Government of New Democracy and the Ministry of Labor with a Minister, Mr. Vroutsi, and today with Mr.. Hatzidaki showed in practice that he is interested in these areas, takes care of and passes laws that are in this direction. It ensures higher salaries.
→ Indicatively I will refer to possibility that given to a new employee, who is employed in the private sector, but wants to supplement his income with a service voucher. He is now given the opportunity to pay only one contribution. And this example shows that his income is increasing and there was substantial concern.
There were other sub-sectors where laws were passed and resulted in wage increases, securing pensions and increasing pensions by reducing bookings.
→ Something that is also a given is that the insurance system has been at a dead end in recent years. There were many problems and SYRIZA's policy in the past period proves it in practice. If everything was safe and in the right direction, "Katruggalo law" would not be passed, where many individual issues were addressed, in order to balance some things, but in what way; By overwhelmingly reducing almost all pensions.
→ Η Νέα Δημοκρατία έρχεται και καταλαβαίνει ότι υπάρχουν ζητήματα. Tries, Nevertheless, to correct them with another logic. Make an effort, finds solutions, innovative systems to make pensions secure, but not to the detriment of the retiree and the employee, without increasing bookings, but also without reducing pensions. And how can this be done; In the way it introduces the current bill, in one of these parts which are supplementary pensions.
Supplementary pensions help and increase the pension. Nevertheless, how can they be safe and as large as possible; In the current situation, that is, for each employee to pay for retirees and not to know in thirty or forty years the amount of his supplementary pension;
→ Θα μου πείτε ότι if there was a government not so responsible, they would not deal with something that would be evaluated after thirty years. The New Democracy, Nevertheless, does not look at today, nor how to handle things by "stroking ears", but it is interested in the real interest of the citizens and especially of the younger generation.
→ Γι’ αυτό εισαγάγει αυτό το νομοσχέδιο, in which enables the new employee in his beginnings 2022 to pay 6,5% deductions for supplementary pension and then after the second half 6% and
- to all who are up 35 years, if they wish to participate in this system as well, which is really important as it is organized, because it is personal, monitors it and has program selection options. Either to choose
- the conservative program,
- or the balanced,
- or the attacker,
that is, to invest his money, with the guarantee of course of the state, not to miss them, but on the other hand to have the ability, when he retires to receive the best possible supplementary pension.
- How is this done?; It is done with the recommended fund, which is a legal entity under public law, who will manage this whole situation, but also with the guarantee of the state.
I think we are following the developments. We are a modern European state and, as this program has achieved in many European countries, it is proven that it will succeed in us as well, as long as we can work in an organized and coordinated way and of course the new generation participates, even those for whom it is not mandatory.
→ So, Well, there will be this costly guarantee and it looks like it will be at 120 millions of euros a year. I do not know if the number sounds big, but we must compare it with 15 billions of euros we give every year to supplement pensions.
→ Must, also, to take into account the money they will earn from the investment action, which will fall on the market, will bring growth, job growth, more revenue and more security in our coffers.
Νέα The new generation wants ideas from us, he wants courage, it takes effort, he wants diligence and he wants result.
. The current Government with this bill proves that it is in this direction.
. Works hard to get a result, not necessarily tomorrow, but possibly, as is insurance, in ten, in twenty or thirty years.
. I think it is in the right direction and I think that all Members are united, we must do what the new generation needs, to support it, so that we can see the result.
→ Otherwise, to be in an existing situation, in a quagmire that leads nowhere, all it does is disappoint the younger generation and take them abroad to find work and secure a pension.
