Female Czech pensioners received about fifth less money than male counterparts

Czech women’s pensions are significantly lower than those of their male counterparts, statistics from the Czech Social Security Administration reveal. While male pensioners receive an average of about 11,700 Czech crowns per month, females who are retired have to make do with around 9,500 crowns per month. Their monthly pension is about a fifth lower than that of men. In addition to the number of years that someone has been employed, other factors also influence the total sum of one’s pension. On average, working Czech women’s salaries are about 25 percent below those of men’s.
