The retirement system for civil servants is different from that of the rest of the Spanish citizens. State workers are governed by the Passive Classes system, which provides for specific retirement or retirement pensions that meet certain requirements.
This regime includes career and internship officials from the State Administration, Justice, General Courts or other bodies and transferred to the Autonomous Communities, as well as career military officers and former presidents, former vice-presidents and former government ministers and other positions. .
According to the Ministry of Social Security , all personnel included in the Passive Classes scheme may, provided they have contributed for at least 15 years , have the right to a retirement pension, either ordinary or extraordinary.
As with the rest of pensioners, they need to reach the mandatory retirement age: 66 years in general or 65 if they have worked at least 37 years and three months. They have also been subject to the 0.9% revaluation stipulated at the beginning of the year.
Amounts of civil servants’ pensions in 2021
All these categories, in short, are entitled to a State pension if they have contributed for that 15-year period, but the pension will be different depending on each case. Two aspects must be taken into account: having a regulator and the years worked .
Regulatory credit is the equivalent of the regulatory base (distance saving) for officials. It is determined each year in the General State Budgets and is made up as the maximum pension that an official can access if the necessary number of years is worked. There are different bases depending on the category of the worker. For 2021, reflected in the General State Budget Law , are the following:
-A1 (graduates, graduates and degrees with a higher level of responsibility): 42,563.68 euros per year and 3,040.26 euros per month in 14 payments.
-A2 (graduates, graduates and degrees with a lower level of responsibility): 33,498.68 euros per year and 2,392.76 euros per month in 14 payments.
-B (Superior Technicians): 29,333.53 euros per year and 2,095.25 euros per month in 14 payments.
-C1 (Bachelor or Technical): 25,727, 56 euros per year and 1,837.68 euros per month in 14 payments.
-C2 (Compulsory Secondary Education): 20,354.76 euros per year and 1,453.91 euros per month in 14 payments.
-E (Professional groups): 17,354.06 euros per year and 1,239.57 euros per month in 14 payments.
A percentage must be applied to these amounts for each year worked , so that with the minimum (15 years) you will have a pension of 26.92% of the regulatory assets and you will have the full pension when you have worked 35 years or more in the administration.
