Pensioners and early retirees who add to their benefits should be careful, because from September 1 the income limits will change, which will lead to a reduction or suspension of benefits from the social insurance institution – ZUS reminds.
“You can earn extra money for your pension, but there are certain limits that change every three months. Its amount depends strictly on the average salary in the state for the previous quarter. In the second quarter, wages decreased, therefore, as of September 1, the limits of working ZUS recipients were also lower, ”- states ZUS spokesperson Pawe Żebrowski.
“The minimum first income is 70% of the average salary. As of September it was 3853.20 PLN total. If the income of the pensioner in a particular month is higher, the payment of the allowance for that month is reduced accordingly. The second threshold is 130%. Average salary, as of September 7155.90 PLN. If it is exceeded, the payment of the allowance for a certain month is suspended ”- emphasizes the speaker.
