Social security benefit
The average social security benefit in 2017 fell fractionally to PLN 2156.9. The decline stems from the continuing shift to payment forms for the system created after 1999 with its much lower benefits (average PLN 4071 versus PLN 2097).
The reduction in the retirement age also impacts the benefits levels, including by increasing the proportion of benefits paid on the new (post-1999) standard. While the average post-1999 system benefit rose in 2017, it need not rise in 2018 on the change in retirement age.
