Following the Bundestag, the Bundesrat has now additionally handed the Incapacity Pensions Improving Act. If it sounds difficult, it’s. But whatever the complexity, round three million retirees can look ahead to it. From July 2024, they are going to obtain a complement to their pension. These are those that can not do their job in complete or partially as a result of sickness or an accident and subsequently obtain an incapacity pension from the state. Around 170,000 persons are affected by this yearly. They have to surrender their jobs earlier than reaching retirement age. Since new pensioners have been considerably higher off as a result of varied reforms, notably from July 2014 and January 2019, the seemingly complicated legislation is now supposed to make sure that those that had been already receiving an incapacity pension earlier than January 2019 obtain more cash.
