The seniority increment is 2% of the pension for each full year of insurance after the first 10 years of insurance. The total increment may not exceed 50% of the pension.
Pension deferral increment - This increment is paid in cases in which there was no entitlement to an old-age pension due to income from work (even if no claim was submitted) or, because of the income from work, the insured is only entitled to a small old-age pension, and he waives receipt of the small amount.
The pension deferral increment is 5% of the pension (including the seniority increment) for each year between retirement age and the age of entitlement to old-age pension.
