CHP Deputy Chairman Veli Ağbaba evaluated the promotion rates paid to retirees by public banks. Ağbaba'' While private banks make promotional payments of up to 7.000 TL to retirees, state-owned Ziraat Bank, Halkbank and Vakıfbank pay a promotion of 750 TL at most, far below the promotion paid by private banks to retirees. Low payments made by public banks are unacceptable in this inflationary environment. Public banks should reconsider their promotional payment amounts,'' he said.
Public banks should update their low promotion rates
According to the SSI protocol, banks have the right to prevent retirees with credit risk from carrying their salaries. While private banks make promotion payments of up to 7.000 TL to retirees, state-owned Ziraat Bank, Halkbank and Vakıfbank pay a maximum of 750 TL promotion, far below the promotion paid by private banks.
Due to the fact that retirees with loan debts cannot carry their salaries to another bank as per the SGK protocol, our retirees who owe loans to these banks are forced to low promotion of the public banks from which they receive salaries, and they are deprived of a promotion payment of almost a pension.
A new regulation is required
Our retirees, who receive a salary below the minimum wage, want to protect themselves against inflation to some extent with bank promotions. The promotional amounts offered to our retirees by public banks, which pay millions of retirees, are far below that of private banks.
Public banks, which pay salaries to millions of retirees, should increase the retirement promotion amount to the level of private banks and SSI should make the necessary adjustments and attribute the promotion increases to a criterion.
