Old-Age Pension in Turkey for the Elderly

June 7, 2022by Bünyamin Esen0

The ability to work together decreases in old age, naturally. This physiological change is being accepted as a social risk according to the Turkish Social Insurance Regime.

Due to the decrease in working power, it becomes difficult to sustain life by earning income for the individual. For this reason, ‘old age’ is accepted as a risk in the Turkish social security practice and a pension is paid if the necessary conditions are met.

On the other hand, it is not possible for informal employees to retire if they get old. Especially if they do not have a certain accumulation, it becomes completely difficult for them to maintain their lives. Taking into account the difficult situation of the citizens in this situation if they get old, they are paid under certain conditions without expecting any compensation. This pension is called 65 pension among the people.

In the determination of the end of the age of 65, the birth dates of the relevant persons in the population registry records are taken as basis. Corrections to be made in the date of birth and corrections made within one year of the publication of the 65-year-old law (1976) are not taken into account.
