Croatian Pensions to Rise by Around Six Percent in September This Year

By 17 August 2022

August the 17th, 2022 - Croatian pensions are set to increase by at least six percent in September this year for a large group of those in receipt of them.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, during the month of September of this year, Croatian pensions will increase by at least 6 percent, or more precisely from 150 kuna to 210 kuna for the largest group of pensioners whose pensions range from between 2,500 kuna and 3,500 kuna, according to a report from Vecernji list.

The average pension paid out to those entitled to them during the month of July 2022 stood at around 2,700 kuna, and if you look only at people who completed their entire working life in Croatia, then the average is slightly higher, standing at 3,050 kuna.

With this increase in Croatian pensions, the average worker's pension during the month of September will be around 3,200 kuna.

People with fifteen years of service have pensions of less than 1,000 kuna, and in receipt of those between 1,500 kuna -2,000 kuna are those with 23 years of service. Those who have worked for 32 years receive 2,500 kuna - 3,500 kuna, and for 38 years of service, Croatian pensions stand at around 4,500 kuna - 8,000 kuna.

The average salary in this country currently stands at around 7,600 kuna, meaning that at this moment in time, Croatian pensions are unfortunately still almost two and a half times less than the average salaries of working people are.
