Following the decision of the Supreme Court, the Social Security Institution (SGK) made an important regulation for civil servants, allowing service indebtedness and insurance start dates to be brought forward. With this change, the debt periods of civil servants who make service debts can be taken into account when calculating retirement. This step is expected to provide civil servants with the opportunity for earlier retirement.
In the previous practice, the service indebtedness of those who were insured as civil servants after October 2008 did not bring forward the insurance start date. However, this situation has changed with the new regulation. This regulation aims to ensure that civil servants who are indebted for periods such as military service, abroad or student service, have the advantage of earlier retirement.
The Supreme Court decision was effective
The change made by SSI came after the Supreme Court’s decision in favor of the insured. The decision of the Supreme Court was that the periods in which an insured person was indebted should be taken into account in the retirement calculation.
With this new regulation, the debt periods of those who were insured under SSK, Bağ-Kur and private funds before October 2008, but started working as civil servants afterwards, can be brought forward in retirement calculations. However, this right will not cover those who started working as civil servants after October 2008.
This change will solve the problem of previously indebted periods being ineffective in retirement calculations.
