The coalition planned basic pension is calculated according to the view of the trade Union Verdi for vulnerable Older much too poor.
The project was “far inadequate,” said Verdi head Frank Bsirske, the German press Agency in Berlin. Minister of social Affairs and Hubertus Heil (SPD) had announced the introduction of the basic pension for the new year.
Union and SPD had agreed in its coalition contract, that the new basic pension is to guarantee a retirement income ten percent above the basic security needs. You can get to all of those who have 35 years of contribution payment, children’s education or care activity.
I’m not criticizing the plans submitted. “Women in the West can reach an average not even 30 years of contributions.” The Verdi Chairman proposed, instead, the pension for the basic safety fully to the credit of: “Much more sensible it would be to go over allowances.” Bsirske said: “200 Euro should find no credits on the basic security claim.” He stressed: “a Lot more people would benefit.”
