Pensions: Tridico, 102 too rigid, there are better alternatives

The government’s choice to opt for only 2022 for quota 102 with which to avoid the staircase effect due to the farewell at the end of the year of Quota 100 has ‘displaced’ the president of INPS, Pasquale Tridico. “Honestly, I was not expecting 102, I thought we all understood that the system is already rigid and therefore we needed flexibility. In my opinion there are better alternatives. The rigid quotas for pension advances are not good “, explained by the microphones of Skytg24.

Rigidity on the other hand, he noted, is already present with the Fornero reform, which provides for 67 years and contribution criteria for access to the pension. “Therefore, for advances, compared to the ordinary reform, flexible forms must be envisaged, otherwise they do not grasp the essence of the problem which is to give answers for a possible advance to women with children and to young people with discontinuous careers”.

There is, he added, “a kind of anticipation that I believe it works well that is the social bee: the legislator provides for a certain category of heavy and tiring jobs, the possibility of early retirement at the expense of general taxation, thus leaving the job at 63 with 36 contributions “, he explains again. But for the others, those whose works are neither wearing nor burdensome could fit another flexibility that still moves within the contribution system without being the responsibility of general taxation, he explains again. And relaunches its proposal a few months ago which provided for the possibility of leaving work early, from 64 years of age, with a check temporarily calculated on the contribution part and then ‘paying’ the entire amount, including the salary, once you arrive at the date of the pension of old age to 67 years.

So there were better alternatives, “he says once again reiterating as “hard quotas for retirement advances are not good. We need to think of women with children to allow them to leave their job 1 or 2 years earlier based on the number of children, and of young people with discontinuous careers making free degree redemptions possible. And all this, within the contribution model, is possible “, he concludes.
