Now that the details have finally been ironed out, the Croatian COVID pension supplements are beginning to be paid out with the regular monthly amounts received in the bank accounts of Croatian pensioners.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, those with a pension of up to one and a half thousand kuna per month will receive an additional 1200 kuna on top of their normal monthly income. Retirees with incomes from one and a half to two thousand kuna will receive a supplement of 900 kuna, and those with a pension of two to three thousand kuna per month will receive an additional 600 kuna bonus.
The smallest Croatian COVID pension supplements are for other groups with higher monthly pensions. The smallest amount of 400 kuna will go to those pensioners with a pension of three to four thousand kuna per month. The second payment is scheduled for July for the beneficiaries of this scheme who receive a foreign pension in addition to a normal Croatian one.
”In total, we have provided about 600 million kuna for this purpose and the rest of the amount will be paid in the future phase for those who receive a pension from two countries (meaning a foreign pension as well as a Croatian one). This is an incentive for Croatian pensioners and a supplement that makes sense to compensate for certain costs incurred during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,” stated Labour Minister Josip Aladrovic, and as was reported by HRT.
