Pensioners with a monthly pension allowance of up to HRK 1,500 will receive the highest amount – HRK 1,200. Those with a pension allowance of between HRK 1,500 and 2,000 will get HRK 900, those whose pension allowance is between HRK 2,000 and 3,000 will receive HRK 600, and those with a pension allowance of between HRK 3,000 and 4,000 will get HRK 400.
The energy allowance will be paid out per person and not per household, the ministry noted.
A total of HRK 480 million was allocated for this measure. The package of measures to mitigate the impact of increased energy prices, worth nearly HRK 5 billion, enters into force on 1 April.
Pensioners who receive a foreign pension allowance in addition to their Croatian allowance should report the amount of their foreign allowance to the Croatian Pension Insurance Fund (HZMO) no later than 30 June, so that they can be paid out the energy allowance in July.
