More than half of pensioners are women, while men receive heavier allowances

In Italy in 2022, out of approximately 16.1 million pensioners, 52% will be femalehowever “women are predominantly represented in the lowest pension income classes (up to 1,500 euros per month) while over 70% of the recipients of allowances in the highest class (over 3,000 euros per month) are male”.

This is what emerged in an event promoted by INPS Policy and Supervisory Council (CIV). due to “a difference in the type of benefit received: in 2022, 50% of men received an early pension – those of the highest amount on average – compared to 20% of women, who are in the majority of those who have pensions to the survivors.” If we then consider the average amounts of pension payments, an average male advantage of over 60% stands out (1,430 euros versus 884 in 2022).

For the president of the INPS Civ, Roberto Ghiselli“a greater awareness of gender inequality is emerging among the new generations, although this ‘gap’ is still evident, especially with regards to salary differences and the greater work discontinuity between men and women”, he added.

As for the extraordinary commissioner of INPS, Micaela Gelera, stated that gender inequality is a problem that is still very evident in our country today, and that it makes it necessary to strengthen and make structural the measures implemented by political decision makers to reconcile family burdens with women’s working lives. I am thinking of leave, the nursery bonus, the universal single allowance and the recent measure introduced by the government to encourage the paycheck of working mothers, allowing them to face the family burden linked to the presence of children with greater serenity. Similarly, all the measures aimed at caring for non-self-sufficient elderly people will make it possible to further lighten the family burden of women”, concluded Gelera. (Teleborsa)
