The law, which includes the increase of the lowest pension to 7 thousand 500 liras, the holiday bonus to 2 thousand liras and the arrangement of cadres for temporary workers, entered into force after being published in the Official Gazette.
In this context, the differences in the pensions of veterans and security guards as of April 1 will be deposited into accounts as of tomorrow.
In the statement made by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security on the subject, it was noted that;
Our Veterans who were awarded the Medal of Independence, who took part in the Korean War and the Cyprus Peace Operation, and the members of the Representative Committee elected by the Sivas Congress, the members of the First Term of our Veteran Assembly and our citizens who served the Turkish Homeland with great success and effort without seeking any reward or benefit, their salaries, Regardless of whether they are working or whether they receive an income/monthly pension, it was ensured that the minimum wage was increased to 30-day net minimum wage, effective from April 1, and the monthly differences depending on whether our Veterans had social security or not were eliminated.
The pensions paid to our veterans and their widows will be calculated on the basis of the net minimum wage. Thus, as of March 2023, the pensions of our Veterans, who were receiving 2 thousand 961 liras including additional payment, increased to 8 thousand 847 liras including additional payment as of April 1, 2023, and the monthly paid to the widows of those who lost their lives at the rate of 75 percent was 2 thousand 220 liras and 6 thousand liras per month. It will be increased to 635 liras.
Again, with the Law, the members of the Representative Committee elected by the Sivas Congress, the members of our Gazi Assembly in the first term, and the Turkish citizens who have served the Turkish Homeland with great success and effort without any compensation or interest, are paid a pension from the Patriotic Service Order in accordance with the Law No. 3292 or the abrogated Law No. 5269. The difference in the pensions paid to the beneficiaries according to the status of working as insured or receiving income and pension has also been abolished. All citizens within the scope of the program have been provided with the opportunity to be paid monthly at the level of the net minimum wage.
In addition, according to the Village Law No. 442 and on the basis of at least 15 years of security guard service, it has been regulated that the monthly salary of the Security Guards and the beneficiaries of the deceased should not be less than 7 thousand 500 TL.
The monthly differences of all our citizens within the scope of these regulations, effective from April 1, will be deposited into their accounts as of April 7th.
