First amendment to Law No. 83-C/2013, of 31 December (State Budget for 2014).

Note should be given to the amendment of the provisions concerning the extraordinary solidarity contribution that in 2014 will be assessed on the pensions paid to a sole beneficiary:

  • The contribution of 3.5% will be imposed on all the pensions with a monthly amount between EUR 1,000.00 and EUR 1,800.00;
  • A 10% contribution will be imposed on pensions exceeding EUR 3,750.00 and, in addition, a 15% contribution will also be applicable on the pension amount exceeding 11 times the value of the Social Support Index ("IAS") and up to the equivalent of 17 times that value, and a rate of 40% will apply to the pension amount exceeding 17 times the IAS;
  • The amount of the contribution due could not have as consequence the reduction of the gross monthly pension below EUR 1,000.00, and therefore the contribution should be reduced accordingly in order to secure that such threshold is safeguarded.
