With this increment accrued in December, retired academics will accrue an increment of 88.78% against inflation which is estimated at around 98/100%. It represents a loss to inflation of 5%.

In this way, with the quarterly mobility, retired national university teachers will also have a loss this year, but it will be lower than if the semester adjustment had been maintained.

In March the increase was 11.29%, in September 43.02% and now 18.60%.

The transition from the half-yearly to the quarterly adjustment It was approved at the beginning of November with Resolution no. 1566/2022 of the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security.

There it was specified that “in the current inflationary context it is necessary to grant the mobility that corresponds to it under equal temporary conditions with respect to the rest of the pension recipients”. And without providing any explanation, it was added that “the mobility to be granted in December 2022, in accordance with the provisions of the previous articles, will be disbursed in January 2023”.

It is interpreted that with this “change in January” the Government is asking for this increase in assets it has no accounting impact on this year’s public accounts and is transferred to 2023.

It is obvious that in January retired national university teachers will have to collect their salaries with the 18.60% increase, plus the retroactive increase of December, including its incidence in the average Christmas bonus.

Unlike the general scheme, retired teachers have a special system, linked to the salaries of the assets that contribute to ANSeS, now taking into account the quarterly variations.

Therefore, “the value of the mobility of the monthly payments to be granted in December of each calendar year will be equal to the percentage of salary increase that would have been agreed for the third quarter of the same year, i.e., from July to September included, through the same instrument ”, specifies resolution 1566/2022. How have the increases been since 2018.

The sequence of increases since 2018:

• In 2018, retired academics received two raises for a total of 21.8%, against inflation of 47.6%. A drop of 17.5%.

• In 2019, the increase in teachers was 29.6% and inflation was 53.8%. A loss of 15.7%.

• In 2020 there was a partial recovery: the increase in teachers was 56.2% against inflation of 36.1%. An improvement of 14.8%.

• In 2021, the increase was 45.9% against inflation of 50.9%, a loss of 3.3%.

• In 2022 the loss would be around 5%.

The differentiated increases for retired university teachers are due to the fact that the sector pension law provides that active workers contribute two points more (13% of their salary) and retire with 82% corresponding to the position they they had in business.

Then they have their own mobility which is calculated from the variation in the salaries of teachers in service with contributions to ANSeS, the so-called “Average taxable salary of university professors” (RIPDUN).
