How much are civil servants’ salaries and pensions increasing from January 1, 2023 – Tables

By Prokopi Hadjinikolou

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis put an end to the solidarity levy for all taxpayers yesterday. From the new year, both public sector employees and pensioners will no longer pay the solidarity levy, which has been suspended for private sector employees since 2021.

The solidarity levy was established by article 29 of Law 3986/2011 on incomes over 12,000 euros of natural persons and which should have been abolished at the end of 2014, as it was established as an extraordinary memorandum measure. The abolition of the solidarity levy means that around 500,000 public sector employees and pensioners with incomes of more than 12,000 euros will see an increase in their wages that start at 22 euros and even exceed 676 euros a year for certain categories of civil servants.

For example, for an income of 13,000 euros, i.e. for a net monthly salary of 1,083 euros, the annual benefit will be 22 euros per year or 1.83 euros per month, for an income of 15,000 euros or 1,250 euros per month the benefit will be 66 euros per year or 5.5 euros per month, for an income of 18,000 euros or 1,500 euros per month the annual profit will be 132 euros. For an income of 30,000 euros or net monthly earnings of 2,500 euros the profit is 676 euros per year or 56.3 euros per month.
