A significant increase in pensions for 2023, announces the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, Kostis Hatzidakis, in an interview he gave to Sunday’s Free Press. Mr. Hatzidakis points out that the increase is linked to the price index and growth, based on the legislation and adds that, with the data so far, it is clear that it will be a significant increase, “even for the data of the pre-memorandum period! And this concerns all pensioners”.

At the same time, the Minister of Labor notes that pensioners will benefit from two more measures, which is the abolition of the solidarity levy, which concerns about 1 million pensioners with an income of more than 12,000 euros, and the increases in pensions that will be seen by more than 150,000 old pensioners , with more than 30 years of insurance, who will be paid the 4th increase resulting from the recalculation of their pensions.

“The increases are permanent increases, which will significantly improve the income of pensioners in a difficult period,” he says characteristically.

Among other things, Mr. Hatzidakis clarifies that, according to the law, the total amount of the pension is adjusted based on the average growth of the economy and inflation. “This in principle involves both national and compensatory pensions, however all the details on how this increase will be implemented will be included, as specified, in a joint decision of the Ministers of Labor and Finance” he adds.

Regarding the basic principles of the new housing policy, Mr. Hatzidakis states that relevant announcements will be made by the prime minister at the TIF in Thessaloniki and emphasizes that the country will acquire, after many years, a substantial housing policy, which will be at the center of young people and especially young couples, who face high housing costs in relation to their income.

“In this context, we will implement modern ideas and solutions, following the model of advanced European countries. In this direction, the possibilities and resources of both the Recovery Fund and the NSRF will be used,” the Minister of Labor emphasizes.
