Federal Council skimps on pensioners


A centre-left coalition is calling for a cost of living adjustment entirely on the AHV pension. But the Federal Council rejected it.

Price jump without end: Inflation rose to 3.5 per cent in August. While many are boiling over the loss of purchasing power, the Federal Council is shedding its blood. “The Federal Council is of the opinion that the previous price increase is manageable for homes,” the government announced last week.

The Federal Council also wants to skimp on pensioners. An official pension adjustment is due in 2023. However, he does not want to know anything about compensation for the cost of living solely for AHV and IV pensions or supplemental benefits. He rejects the advances relating to the ranks of the Center and the SP.
