In Poland, Ukrainians who have worked for even one day can receive a pension from the Social Insurance Institution (ZUS). However, this is not a minimum pension. The contribution will be divided by the average life expectancy at retirement. In other words, in this case, the pension may be a meager amount.

According to the ZUS website, in Poland, to receive a pension, you must be 60 years old for women and 65 years old for men. You also need to pay social security contributions in Poland. It doesn't matter how long you pay the contributions. Even if it is one day.

However, the contributions will be divided by the life expectancy at retirement. Therefore, if you contribute for one day, your pension will be meager. "To calculate the amount of your pension from the Social Insurance Office (ZUS), the following will be added: the valorized pension insurance contributions kept on your account with ZUS, the valorized initial capital (established for insurance periods before January 1, 1999), and the valorized funds kept on your sub-account with the Social Insurance Office (ZUS)," the explanation says.

To be eligible for the minimum pension in Poland, you must meet the Polish conditions, i.e. have 20 years of work experience for women and 25 years for men, as well as reach the retirement age of 60 years and 65 years, respectively. Otherwise, the Polish old-age pension will be calculated based on the contributions that the person paid while working in Poland, and if these contributions are low, the benefit will also be low.

It should be noted that the minimum pension in Poland is 1588.44 zlotys (about 13,600 hryvnias).
