As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Croatian retirees with a low monthly income should receive almost one full supplementary pension payment in the form of a coronavirus payment. It seems that about 800,000 Croatian retirees are set to receive the this so-called covid/coronavirus supplement.
¨There is no dispute, the main things have all been agreed on,¨ they state from the Croatian Pensioners’ Union.
“This is certainly going to be the case for those Croatian retieers who are neglected, socially excluded and have a low income, and that refers to at least 800 thousand pensioners across Croatia. They should receive the payment and that payment will definitely come,¨ said Jasna A. Petrovic, the president of the Croatian Pensioners’ Union, in conversation with RTL Danas.
When asked if she can give any promises on this matter at this point in time, she said that she does have some “firm promises”, but also that it has been agreed that the amounts will not be made public for the time being, but that it will also be a good addition to the pensions of those who fall into the low-income bracket.
The coronavirus supplement for Croatian retirees, at least as things stand now, would not be given to all retirees, but only to those drawing smaller monthly pensions. Those with the least income per month would get the most. The details are still being discussed with the competent state institutions.
“After April the 10th, 2021, calculations and payments of the coronavirus allowance will get underway,” assured Petrovic.
