“It is a lie that pensions have been recalculated. Pensions will not increase this year “

Lucian Alecu

Raluca Turcan, Minister of Labor, spoke exclusively on the show “Subjective” moderated by Răzvan Dumitrescu on Antenna3, about a new pension law that will appear in two years at the latest. This year, pensions will not increase.

Asked about the situation of pension recalculations and the start of a new pension law, Raluca Turcan, the Minister of Labor specified that in Romania there was only one recalculation between 2005 and 2008 for one million pensions. After that, pensions were indexed or increased by increasing the pension point in arbitrary principle as established by politicians.

Raluca Turcan: It is a lie that the pensions have been recalculated

“Meanwhile, a law was debated in 2019, it came into force with a few articles and no, the recalculations did not start at all. That law created the prospect that somewhere from September 1, 2021, a recalculation for five million pensions would be made suddenly, so suddenly, so that they would increase by 40%. This lie is one of the most blatant lies I have ever heard.

In order to increase pensions with a new formula, it is assumed that all pension files, approximately 5 million, must exist in an electronic format with all the indicators that are taken into account in the evaluation of pensions, put in order so that, inserting the new formula, electronically, to perform this recalculation. From 2019 until a month ago, absolutely nothing has been done “, explained the Minister of Labor, Raluca Turcan

Turcan: “Pension files have not been evaluated”

“Recalculation, on the merits, involves the preparation of files and then a new calculation formula (…) We have 250,000 files in letter format, ie with rails. How did someone set out to recalculate them if they weren’t even entered into a computer? We have 1.3 million files in an adapted computer system and not much else 3.6 in another computer system. We hope that in maximum 1 year, half and 2 years we will have a new choice of pensions with recalculated files “, Raluca Turcan also said.
