The Head of the Prime Minister’s Office has announced that every pensioner will receive household utility vouchers worth 9,000 HUF by September 30th.
Gergely Gulyás said the Hungarian economy is out-performing all expectations, and this is something that elderly age groups should also benefit from. “It is very important to express our appreciation and respect for them,” he said.
The three household utility vouchers, each to the value of 3,000 HUF, can be used up to March 31st for the payment of gas and electricity bills; they will first be delivered in Budapest, and later in the countryside, further indicating that this year the government will pay a pension premium as well as a pension supplement.
