Extraordinary pension rise for 1.6 million pensioners

Almost 1.6 million pensioners who receive €643.35 or less a month are going to get an extraordinary pension rise this month, the Portuguese Ministry of Labour and Welfare said on Monday.

“In August more than 60 percent of pensioners are going to get this increase along with their monthly pension payment, the minister said.
In a short declaration the minister said that this increase, like the one last year, was for pensioners who had long contributive careers and low pensions.

“It is mainly for those who had no pension increase for many years between 2011 and 2015, so they will now have better living conditions to help overcome the difficulties they have faced”, he added.
