People who were part of the resistance against the totalitarian communist regime between 1948 and 1989 will see their pension bonuses double. They will also receive a symbolic one-time compensation of €1,989.
The parliament gave a green light to the amendment on pensions for veterans of the anti-communist resistance and their relatives on November 26, 2020. On top of their one-time compensation of €1,989, veterans will also receive a raise in their retirement subsidies of €5 to €10 for each month they had their personal freedom denied by the pre-1989 communist government. The amendment is scheduled to become effective as of January 1, 2021. The first increased pensions and one-off bonuses will be paid out after that date, the TASR newswire reported.
