During Pandemic, Elderly Should Not Only Fear Virus

During Pandemic, Elderly Should Not Only Fear Virus
Rocketing food prices and increased costs of medicines also threaten the lives of pensioners.

And let's not forget: 62 per cent of those getting pension and other benefits are women!
 
Mothers, grandmothers.
 
Most of their pensions will simply not guarantee their livelihoods! They will have no money for food and medicine. We therefore recommend that pensioners get a 6 and a half per cent pension increase adjusted to the real rate of inflation as opposed to the under-projected one!
 
And the pension bonus should not be postponed, but paid as soon as possible! This is also included in MSZP's five-point protective action plan.
 
We strive to keep everyone safe!
