Prague – Today's fifty-somethings should retire at 66. People in their 40s should be eligible for a pension at 67, and people aged 34 and under should retire at 68. Czech Television found this out from the material of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs agreed at the coalition council last week. According to government spokesman Václav Smolka, the government coalition has not yet approved the change, it is just one of the economists' proposals. He stated on his twitter today that the information published by CT today is incorrectly presented. Now the retirement age for men and childless women is 64.
According to the materials of the Ministry of the Interior and the Czech Republic, the expected saving when the retirement age is increased by two years by 2060 is around one percent of GDP, i.e. CZK 73 billion, for a three-year increase it is 1.5 percent, i.e. CZK 109.5 billion.< /p>
In 2030, the retirement age is to stop at 65. According to CT, the changes will not affect those who are now 57 or older. “After 2030, the demographically strong cohorts will begin to retire. I think that in order to maintain decent pensions, we need to debate this,” Finance Minister Zbyněk Stanjura (ODS) told CT. While the opposition SPD does not support the proposal, the ANO movement is ready to discuss it.
For example, a man who is now 37 years old should retire at 66. Even later, at the age of 68, a man who is now 26 years old is to retire.
In internal material, the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Marian Jurečka (KDU-ČSL) proposes that even after 2030, the pension age gradually. With each vintage by less than two months. Jurečka currently did not want to comment on the document proposed to the coalition council last week. At the same time, he added that demanding professions would be left earlier without sanctions. There are about half a million such people.
“We understand that the debate about shifting the retirement limit is attractive to the media. However, we must respect the fact that the final draft of the changes is not ready yet,” Smolka said on Twitter. According to him, the public will be informed about the definitive changes in time, and a debate will also take place about them with the opposition.
Women with one child now retire at 63 years and eight months, and women with two children at 62 years and eight months.
