In three cases, you can apply for, but not from ZUS. The Social Insurance Institution cannot pay two pensions at the same time. So how can you get extra money for life? Unfortunately, the chosen ones have this privilege. You have to meet several conditions and submit two forms.
The second pension may go to people who worked abroad
People who took up work abroad legally, i.e. paid contributions, have a chance to. The application should then be submitted to the pension authority in the country where we worked. You can count on a positive decision when the necessary conditions are met, e.g. achieving the required length of service.
Double uniformed pension. Not everyone will benefit from it
Uniformed services may receive a pension from ZUS and ZER MSWiA, which results from the inability to determine the amount of the uniformed pension, taking into account the working time as a civilian. However, it is worth remembering that the second pension is only due to officers who entered service after January 2, 1999, and then started working as civilianas indicated in Art. 95 sec. 2 of the Act on pensions and disability pensions from the Social Insurance Fund.
Double pension for farmers. One condition is important
Farmers will get paid if they have paid contributions to both ZUS and KRUS. Importantly, the benefit should be paid by KRUS, contributions must be paid for at least 25 years. Only then will the authority consider the application positively.
