Boris: Some participants are testing PPC
– We see that some participants are testing the system, because these are not participants who leave the PPC, but withdraw money. After that, every month they save this money from their salary. This is about 50 thousand participants out of 2.5 million – said the head of the Polish Development Fund. — But it shows one important advantage, which we ourselves spoke about, that this is a private system, the money for the PPC is de facto money in our personal account — added.

Regardless of the percentage of remuneration paid by the employee, the employer is required to add an additional minimum of 1.5% to the employee’s PPC account. his remuneration (this amount can be increased up to 4%).
