The Government has insisted this Saturday that pensions will rise 0.9% with effect from January 1, 2020 once a new Executive with full capacities is formed, so that pensioners “can be calm.”
The Executive says in a note that it is “reasonable” to postpone the application of the increase until the Government is in full use of its “proactive and normative” capacity.
He adds that “he does not give up at all” to raise pensions and will fulfill the commitment acquired and communicated to the European Commission within the 2020 Budget Plan in this regard.
It also affects the fact that it maintains the suspension of the application of the revaluation of 0.25%, approved at the time by the Government of the PP, because it has been questioned in the framework of the social dialogue and between the parliamentary groups and because it would require duplicating the processes once the rise of the remaining 0.65% was applied.
The Government points out that in 2019 all pensions have gained purchasing power, given that the average increase in the CPI in the year will end below 1.6%, which in general have increased pensions and 3% of the minimum.
