The budget will save around PLN 19.5 billion thanks to a lower than expected subsidy to the Social Insurance Fund, informs Dziennik Gazeta Prawna on Monday. According to the president of ZUS, Prof. Gertruda Uścińska, the reason for the lower subsidy is the effectiveness of the anti-crisis shield.

“DGP” writes that the subsidy to the Social Insurance Fund was originally supposed to amount to PLN 59.5 billion. However – as mentioned – the financial results of the fund are good enough that the management board of the Social Insurance Institution prepares a decision to withdraw almost one third of the subsidy.

According to journalists from “DGP”, this amount will not be lower than PLN 19.5 billion. “And unofficially, it is said that this amount may increase even more” – underlined.

In an interview with the Journal, the president of ZUS, prof. Gertruda Uścińska pointed out that the reason for the lower subsidy is the effectiveness of aid measures under the anti-crisis shield. “A dozen or so months ago we were in a completely different place. We did not know what impact the COVID-19 epidemic would have on the economy. Now we can see that the aid activities have brought the expected effect in the form of protection of companies and employees who are now paying contributions” – said Uścińska.

The President of the Social Insurance Institution (ZUS) noted that “from the beginning of the anti-crisis shield, the pension body exempted from contributions for about PLN 15.5 billion and paid out stoppages for the amount of PLN 6.5 billion”. “ZUS clients also benefited from postponing the payment of contributions and installment arrangements for a total amount of almost PLN 15 billion,” she added.

“DGP” reminds that more insured means more inflows to the Social Insurance Fund. The data at the end of October 2021 show that the number of ZUS insured persons increased by almost 262,000. compared to February 2020 (PAP)
