PPK - Employee Capital Pension Schemes

PPK - Employee Capital Pension Schemes
Employee Capital Pension Schemes (PPK) are a new voluntary and long-term savings programme for Employees, which aims to build up additional capital for a pension.
Enrollment of Employees for PPK

Enrollment for PPK will cover all persons employed aged 18-55. Employees aged 55-70 who want to take part in the programme must turn directly to the Employer with the proposal to conclude on their behalf an agreement on running a PPK. Ultimately, each Employer employing at least one person will be required to conclude a contract for the management of a PPK with a selected financial institution within the deadlines specified in the law, depending on the size of employment.


Selection of PPK institution

The employer shall make the choice in agreement with the Employees’ representation or the company trade union on the basis of evaluation of: terms and conditions of management of funds accumulated in PPK proposed by the financial institutions; their effectiveness in managing assets as well as their experience in managing investment or pension funds, with a view to the employed persons’ best interests.
