With 280,000 lawsuits and 80,000 final judgments of retirees and pensioners of the ANSeS, the 2022 Budget project plans to allocate

a lesser amount of money to the payment of these court decisions.

Instead, there will be a larger item for the cancellation of the sentences of pensioners and retirees of the Armed and Security Forces.

Article 33 of the Budget project sets at

$ 80,086 million "the amount destined to the payment of social security debts

recognized in judicial and administrative headquarters and those social security debts established in the transactional agreements entered into within the framework of Law No. 27,260" (Historical Reparation ).

In the 2021 Budget, that item was $ 91,277 million.

It represents a

nominal drop of 12.3%

.

But if the official inflation for the next year of 33% is considered,

in real terms the fall rises to 34%

, equivalent to about $ 40,000 million.

Meanwhile, the item for the sentences of retirees and pensioners of the

Armed Forces and the Security Forces

, including the Federal Penitentiary Service, which in 2021 was $ 39,329 million, by 2022 it rises to $ 60,148 million,

a 52, 9% nominal, higher than inflation.

Thus, if both items are added, in 2022 there will be a total of $ 140,224 million for sentences, lower than the $ 130,606 million in 2021.

As is the practice in all Budgets,

the Chief of Staff is authorized to expand these items.

On the other hand,

the item for non-transferred provincial retirement

funds

also decreases in real terms

: the Budget project sets it at $ 58,477 million, when for this year the initial amount was $ 43,965 million but was later adjusted to $ 56,064 millions.

A nominal increase of just 4.3% versus an estimated inflation of 33%.

Although there are lower payments for the Historical Repair agreements, this adjustment in the payment of sentences to retirees and pensioners of the ANSeS stands out in the Budget project because as

of last June, the pension agency had 78,845 files of readjustments of retirement and pensions with final judgment

pending to be liquidated.

Meanwhile, the last report to Congress by the Chief of Staff, Santiago Cafiero, -in July- indicated that the stock of retiree lawsuits in process (for mobility and other claims) was 268,998.

And the annual flow of lawsuits initiated against ANSeS from December 2019 to May 2021 was as follows: in December 2019 there were 2,080;

in 2020 there are 14,126;

in 2021 through May, 8,037.

Despite the payment of judgments, around

40,000 / 45,000 per year

, the stock of lawsuits

has remained

around these figures

for several years

.

It is that although the ANSeS pays an average of 4,000 sentences every month, on the other hand,

new trials

are

entered

and new sentences remain firm.

According to pension law, final sentences must be canceled

within 120 days.

This includes the payment of the retroactivity from two years prior to the start of the trial and the readjustment of current assets.

But

that is not fulfilled

because ANSeS pays every year the item that marks the National Budget.

After the peak of lawsuits that occurred as a result of the Supreme Court rulings, Badaro (2007) cases for the minor increases granted between 2002 and 2006 and Elliff (2009) –which adjusted the variation of pensions and salaries which are taken as a reference for the calculation of the initial credit, since the beginning of 2018, new claims were added.

Among others, due to the

retroactive application of the change in pension mobility at the end of 2017

, the

increases by decree of 2020

lower than those of the suspended formula and claims for the cancellation of disability pensions, for the discount of Earnings on the retirement amounts and due to bad settlement of the sentences paid.
