How Quota 102 works, the government's hypothesis on pensions to curb Salvini's wrath

Pensions Quota 102 / here is the hypothesis under consideration by the government to exceed Quota 100

Send in pension Quota 100 and replace it with a system based on similar principles that remodel the time of placement at rest, combining it with a series of contribution discounts for the most disadvantaged categories. Is Plan B leaking from the Ministry of to put a stop to the controversy triggered by the cancellation of the pension reform launched by the government Count I and so dear to the Alloy of Matthew Salvini, to be replaced with a kind of Quota 102.

The National recovery and resilience plan or “Recovery Plan” did nothing but formalize the cancellation of the measure, already widely announced at the end of the three-year trial also following the pressure of the European Union. “On the subject of pension the transitional phase of application of the so-called Quota 100 it will end at the end of the year and will be replaced by measures aimed at categories with exhausting tasks”, reads the text approved at 23,30 on Saturday 24 April 2021 by the Council of ministers.

The decision of the Government Dragons Fed new controversy in the majority, with the leader of the Lega Matteo Salvini which before came back to propose a renewal of Quota 100 also in the 2022at no cost“, but without explaining how to zero the expenditure for a measure that in three years has cost about EUR 20 billion, and then asking to go to “quota 41“(41 years of contributions regardless of age), a project also supported by the undersecretary League for the economy, Claudio Durigon, according to which, however, “Quota 100 it is no longer enough”

To limit the controversy, Via XX Settembre is studying a new reform the interests protected by the previous measure, while taking note of the failure of the latter measure.

The Recovery seems in fact to marry the line drawn by the president of then, Pasquale Tridico. “On Quota 100 membership was 50 percent lower than the initial estimate and this for the entire period, to date,” confirmed at the beginning of April the head of the pension Institute, also advancing a proposal. “More than early retirement for all I would study the possibility of going in pension before only for certain categories of people, starting with frail, immunosuppressed, oncological workers“.

The plan to study the Ministry of Economy, one of the hypotheses under consideration Government would provide for the use of the so-called Solidarity funds for workers with health problems, dependent family members, wear and tear, on the move or at an early age. With regard to the registry and contributory requirements instead, the so-called Quota 102, as illustrated on Corriere Della Sera from Alberto Brambilla, President of Social itineraries and appreciated figure in Alloy.

Farewell Quota 100, Fornero law returns

At the moment, the only certainty regarding the issue of pension is the return to the Law Fornero, which provides for retirement at 67 years old or with a contribution of 42 years and 10 months (41 years and 10 months for women), while Quota 100 it allows early retirement at an age of 62 years after paying contributions for 38 years. The only corrective measures that would remain in force concern the old Social EPA and the woman Option (if extended).

The first measure, short for Social pension advance, is a mechanism that allows workers in uncomfortable situations to get the pension no penalties from 63 years of age and give 30-36 contribution. The measure, introduced for the first time by the Gentiloni Government in experimental form, was confirmed in 2019 precisely on the occasion of the approval of the Citizenship income and of Quota 100.

The so-called Woman Option instead, already provided for by Maroni Law n.243 of 2004 and then resumed both from Law Fornero that from budget maneuver 2017 and subsequently extended, it provides for the possibility for public and private sector workers to retire with 35 years of contributions and 58 years of age, provided you accept a cheque calculated entirely with the contributory system.

However, these remedies would leave a large audience of future retirees on the sidelines. To avoid problems in view of the likely “staircase” of January 1, 2022, when the expiration of Quota 100 those who had matured the requirements will see lengthen the retirement times according to the provisions of the Law Fornero, the government and the majority are considering a number of hypotheses, including the so-called Quota 102.

Pensions, hypothesis Quota 102: how it works and to whom it would be up to

As for the measure passed by the Recovery plan, also Quota 102 provides for the achievement of a certain threshold of old age and contributory seniority: “at least 64 years old and 38 years of contributions (64+38=102) of which no more than 2 figurative years (excluding maternity, military service, voluntary redemptions)“. Thus, the audience of recipients would be reduced compared to the reform that came into force in March 2019, anticipating the retirement of 3 years instead of 5 compared to Law Fornero.

To the personal and contributory requirement, the new measure would also combine a series of facilitation in the form of a “discount” on contributions for certain categories of workers. The reform hypothesis under consideration by the government would in fact provide for a reduction on contributions for women of 8 months (up to a maximum of 2 years) for each child, “contribution discountsequal to 12 months for the so-called caregiver who has been assisting a severely disabled family member for at least five years and one 25% increase in contribution years between 17 and 19 years for early workers and for those who have earned at least one year of contributions before they turn 19 years old.

At the moment it is not clear what the cost of such a reform would be, but there is talk of a figure not lower than EUR 8 billion. The measure should also affect about 150 thousand people each year, instead of at least 250 thousand who have applied for Quota 100 for the last three years.
