Provision for PTE’s reimbursement of fees collected from contributions overpaid by ZUS
A detailed method for determining and settlement of undue premiums to be returned is regulated in Article 100a of the Act on organisation and operation of pension funds of 28 August 1997 (Journal of Laws of 2013 item 989 as amended) pursuant to which if premiums unduly received are returned, the nominal amount of the service fee collected by the pension society managing a given fund should be returned to the Social Insurance Institution as well.
Since 2008, PTE PZU has been maintaining a provision for reimbursement of handling fees related to excess premiums paid by the Social Insurance Institution in previous periods. The calculation is made on the basis of information provided by the Social Security Institution for the years 1999 - 2013 (in 2014, the Social Security Institution has not provided any new information) and the rate of payment of premiums charged by PTE PZU.
Due to the fact that, as at signing of the consolidated financial statements, not all required information has been received from the Social Security Institution, it is not possible to specify the date of return of the fees on premiums.
