MADRID, 28 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations has proposed this Monday to the social agents to progressively extend the pension calculation period to 30 years, but discarding the two worst years of contributions, which would mean that the pension would be calculated with the best 28 years. listing within a total period of 30 years, according to sources from José Luis Escrivá's portfolio.
Social Security has also raised at the social dialogue table an improvement in the treatment of contribution gaps for women, as well as for men whose contribution career has been reduced after having a child, in line with the operation of the gender gap plugin.
The Ministry's proposals also contemplate special treatment for the contribution gaps of the self-employed group.
Regarding the maximum base of pensions, the Government has proposed to unions and employers the possibility of linking its evolution to the pension revaluation criteria, that is, to the CPI, in addition to an additional annual increase of 1,154 points between 2025 and 2050. This will be accompanied by an increase in the maximum pension, according to the same sources.
The Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration wants to agree with the social agents before the end of the year the two milestones that remain to complete Component 30 of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, related to the "Adaptation to the new professional careers of the calculation period for calculating the retirement pension" and "Adequacy of the maximum contribution base of the system".
Social Security recalls that this approach is "a starting point, open to new contributions from the social dialogue table".
For the moment, CCOO considers the proposals presented this Monday by the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration "clearly insufficient", and also regrets its "lateness" to sit down to negotiate.
However, the union describes as "positive" that the Ministry has met its claim to guarantee the revaluation of the maximum bases and all pensions. In this way, it will be incorporated into the General Social Security Law with a normative nature that the maximum contribution bases and all pensions, including minimums and maximums, will be revalued every year, at least, with the average real CPI of the preceding 12 months. .
This will avoid, in the opinion of the CCOO, that the maximum contribution bases depend on the "discretionary action" of each Government in the General State Budgets.
Despite the "satisfaction" for having achieved the inclusion of this proposal, the union demands "more intense" measures to increase tax revenue.
