The value of the pension point will increase 20%, as of Oct 1, from 581 to 697.5 lei, announced on Thursday PM Calin Popescu-Tariceanu, at the end of a Government meeting.
„The raising of the pension point before the deadline has been possible due to exceptional economic results. At stake has been the highest economic growth in the EU, allowing that more resources be generated. The value of the pension point will increase 20%, from 581 to 697.5 lei. The rise is substantial, I hope it will serve all pensioners,” Tariceanu said.
