Hungary takes serious care for its pensioners, increasing pensions continuously.

Pensions are 1.6 per cent higher year-on-year in January, meaning that an average pensioner will get extra HUF 2000.

“It was an important goal of the Government that pensioners should perceive the strengthening of Hungary”, said State Secretary Bence Retvari.

The pensions of some 2.7 million people in total will increase as of January, plus pension-like allowances will also be eligible for increased payments.
