Most of us associate the pensions of tens of thousands of lei with the idea of special pensions, those that are paid by the Romanian state every month, but are not based on social contributions in relation to the value received. But there are exceptions.
In Romania, a significant number of citizens receive pensions amounting to tens of thousands of lei based on the contributions they have paid over the years to the national pension system. Economica.net made a ranking with the highest pensions granted in our country based on contributions.
Although we do not have names, occupations, date of retirement, locality associated with these values, it is important to note that the values in question are as legal as possible, in accordance with applicable law and based on the money these people gave to the state. in a few decades of work.
The largest pension in Romania based on contributions to the National Pension House was in July worth 33,000 lei gross, before taxes. Although this is an exception, the top of the largest non-special pensions can be seen below. As a reference, approximately 27,000 Romanians had pensions in July worth over 5,000 lei gross. This money is allocated to people according to how much they contributed to the Social Insurance Budget.
In order to transform the gross value of the pension into a net value, which the person receives in his hand, you have to deduct 2000 lei, a non-taxable value. An income tax of 10% is applied to the result. The value obtained is deducted from the gross amount of the pension and reaches the net value.
Although the value of 33,235 lei seems extraordinary for a Romanian, it is important to remember that the largest pension in Romania is a special one, received by a magistrate who receives 78,600 lei per month. On the basis of contributions, he would have deserved a pension of 4,500 lei.
