Expert named. I expect a 40 to 50 percent increase in civil servant salaries.
With the announcement of the minimum wage as 8 thousand 506 TL, the eyes were turned to civil servants and pensions. While the civil servants are suffering from the melting of their salaries in the face of inflation, they think that their salaries should be increased as much as the increase in the minimum wage. While the civil servants and retirees are wondering how much raise they will get, Prof. who knows the minimum wage hike correctly. Dr. A remarkable prediction came from Cem Kılıç about civil servants and pensions.
Kılıç, who participated in the live broadcast of NTV, calculated the cost of the minimum wage to the employer, as well as the raise rate for civil servants and retirees.
My figure was 8 500 liras and the rate we expected came out. The workers’ side did not come to an agreement, but not this year’s event, but 15 times in the last 22 years, a situation where the parties could not agree. Türk-İş conducts research on poverty and hunger limit every month. 7785 was determined this month. Türk-İş did not set out on this path with this figure. This in itself was the unrest caused by misunderstanding.
THE COST OF THE MINIMUM WAGE TO THE EMPLOYER 11 thousand 759 TL
It was raised twice last year. Now it has been announced as 8 thousand 506 liras. With my calculation, the cost to the employer is around 11 thousand 759 liras. In case of reflection of 500 liras, it would cost 1000 liras. This figure is valid for employers who pay their premiums regularly and benefit from 5 points incentives. In addition, the minimum wage support, which was applied as 3.33 TL per day last year, was increased to 8.33 TL per day. This figure means a monthly support of 250 TL for the workers within the scope.
Salary arrangements will be made based on this. Most of the private sector employees are shown at the minimum wage level. Businesses are tough. Is this a sufficient increase? Given the current situation, this figure had to be met.
65 YEARS OLD AND HOME CARE MONEY WILL RISE
The minimum wage also determines the amount of debt in working life, the GSS premium, and the income limit of 65 years of age and home care pension. As of January 1, 2023, the daily amount of military service and birth debt increased to 106.7 TL. General health insurance premium reached 300.24 TL. In order to receive a 65-year-old pension, the income limit will increase to 2835.6 TL, and the income limit for home care pension will increase to 5671.2 TL. This means that people who already meet the other conditions but are stuck on the income limit can receive a 65-year-old or home care pension in the new year.
HOW MUCH WILL THE OFFICER AND PENSION’S SALARY EXCHANGE?
3500 lira pension base monthly. I think the base salary will be increased. Collective agreement rules are valid for civil servants and civil servant retirees, 6-month CPI is taken into account for workers and Bağ-Kur retirees. It is true that inflation will fall below these figures.
The 54.66 percent increase will also have an impact on pensions. We may experience a pension increase rate above the CPI. I am of the opinion that pensions will be determined almost at a level close to this figure.
MINIMUM RETIRED SALARY WILL INCREASE THOUSAND TL
The minimum pension is 3500 lira. With the minimum wage increase, my guess is that the minimum pension will be 4500 liras. In general, I expect an increase of 40 to 50 percent in civil servants and pension increases.”
