As the Feast of Sacrifice approaches, millions of retired bonuses are also investigating the date of payment. Last minute news about the prize pay dates before the Eid al-Adha, which came to the 31st of July this year, is also wondering. Retirement bonuses were paid early due to the epidemic during Eid al-Fitr. So when will the Feast of Sacrifice bonuses to be received by millions of retirees? How much was the sacrifice feast bonus? Can there be an increase in retirement bonuses as compared to the July hike?
The bonus for the Ramadan Feast in May was earned in April as part of the Economic Stability Shield package. The Feast of Sacrifice coincides with the dates of 31 July-3 August. Accordingly, retirees will receive the second holiday bonus of this year between 27-30 July 2021, unless a change is made in the payment plan. A thousand lira will be paid to retirees, and widows and orphans will be paid in proportion to their shares.
But retirees expect inflation or revaluation increase in bonuses. Inflation in 2019 was 11.84 percent. Accordingly, if the increase in bonuses is indexed to inflation, the amount to be paid to retirees will be 118 lira 40 kuruş, and if the revaluation increase comes, it will increase by 22.58 percent to 225 lira 80 kuruş.
