They suspend the January additional payment for retirees

Just like what happened in 2023 In 2024, retirees will not benefit from what is colloquially called a “retirement pension”.an additional income which provided for many people an economic cushion allowing them to face the dreaded “January cost”.

However, losing this straw This does not mean that retirees receive less money. The reality is that they receive the amount associated with this “additional January salary”, but in a different way.

The “pension payment” responded to the economic compensation which was registered in the retired (and the rest of the retirees) so that would not see their purchasing power diminish due to inflation.

Before the pension reform came into force, The pension increase was based on a preliminary government estimate. And if this percentage turned out to be lower than the actual percentage, this loss of purchasing power was covered by the payment.

For example, in 2021 (year taken into account for the revaluation of pensions in 2022) average inflation was 3.1%. But the executive’s calculations were not up to parFor what payment was entered to cover the difference between the inflation estimate and the actual data.

Evolution of the revaluation of pensions from 2023

However, During the 2023 pension revaluation, the method changed. This government forecast was left aside andThe increase is now based on the actual annual increase in the CPI.

The removal of the Executive’s estimate made it possible to perfectly adjust the increase in pensions to inflation. This traditional “pension payment” was no longer necessary to compensate for the loss of purchasing power.

In this way, In 2023, this payment has not been paidbut in exchange the income from the money that was earned in each of the 14 payments of the pension increase In 8.5% (average inflation between December 2021 and November 2022).

Pensions will increase by 3.8% in 2024

Looking towards 2024the revaluation of pensions will be calculated by carrying out the following operation: add CPI figures from December 2022 to November 2023 And Divide the result by 12.

This same week, the last data was known, that of the CPI corresponding to November 2023, the aforementioned calculation can therefore now be carried out. The result is 3.8%For what This will be the percentage increase in pensions over the next year.
