Ask an European Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Dear Sir/Madam, I have a question about pension for people who worked in Poland and than emigrated do USA. Poland and USA have an agreement to pay a pension for years of work in each country. Poland supposedly has a regulation to pay for years worked in Poland by creating a ratio: years of working in Poland to total years worked in both countries. Than they calculate the pension by multiplying it by the ratio. It does not agree with the rules of the American regulations. So in reality, it is a small fraction of pension for years worked in Poland. Would you please tell me if there is any constitutionional regulation as to how the pension should be calculated. Any other country is recompensating individuals, for years worked in this country. It seems strange, that Poland, being a member of the EU, has their own rules. I worked in Poland for 12 years, and in the United States for 33 years. Would you please advise me , if you can, how much pension should I receive.
