The amount of pension granted is determined by applying the general percentage according to the number of years contributed to BP and, if applicable, the additional percentage for prolonging their working life, when retiring above the ordinary retirement age at any time and the applicable reduction quotient.
Amount
Base rate
As of the year 2022, the retirement pension base rate will be the quotient resulting from dividing the interested party’s contribution bases by 350 during the 300 months immediately preceding the month before the causal event of the pension.
If the interested party has access to a retirement pension from registration as an active contributor or assimilated status without having to make contributions, the period that determines the base rate (BR) cannot be taken back to the time when the obligation to contribute finished.
For people to whom the legislation prior to 01/01/2013 is applicable by virtue of temporary provision four of the General Law on Social Security, the base rate will be the quotient produced by dividing the interested party’s contribution bases during the 180 months immediately preceding the month prior to the causal event by 210.
Updating of the contribution bases:
The contribution bases of the 24 months immediately preceding the month prior to the causal event are taken at their nominal value.
The other contribution bases are updated according to the evolution of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) from the month said bases correspond to the month immediately preceding the one when the period referred to in the previous paragraph begins.
Gap Integration:
If the period which has to be used to calculate the BP contains months during which contribution is not mandatory, the first 48 months will enter the calculation at the minimum base of those existing at each time, and the other monthly figures will be entered at 50% of said minimum base.
For those persons for whom the legislation applicable is that prior to 01/01/2013 by virtue of temporary provision four of the General Law on Social Security, for the purposes of said calculation, gaps in contribution will be integrated by entering the minimum contribution basis in force at any time in the General System for workers over the age of 18.
When there are some months where there was only an obligation to contribute during part of the month, the part during which there was no obligation to contribute shall be integrated as indicated in the previous paragraphs, provided that the Contribution Basis for the first period does not reach the minimum monthly basis specified. In this case, the integration will be increased up to this latter amount.
In the case of workers included in the Special system for domestic employees, from 2012 to 2023, only the periods actually contributed will be taken into account (with no gap integration) to calculate the retirement pension BP.
In the case of workers included in the Special scheme for agricultural workers employed by another person, from 01/01/2012 onwards, only the periods actually contributed will be used to calculate the BR (Gap Integration does not apply).
For part time, relief and intermittent permanent contracts, it must be taken into account that:

The integration of the periods during which there has been no obligation to contribute will be carried out using the minimum Contribution Basis from those applicable at any time for the number of hours contracted on the date on which the obligation to contribute was interrupted. If an individual is only required to contribute for a portion of a month, the part of the month for which he or she is not required to contribute will be integrated, as long as the relevant contribution basis does not reach the minimum basis amount indicated.

With the exception of periods between seasons or campaigns for workers on an Intermittent  Permanent Employee Employment Contract, the hours or days not worked due to interruptions in employment due to the conditions of the parttime contract itself will not be deemed contribution gaps.
Increases in Contribution Bases:
Increases in contribution bases occurring in the last two years, if the result of salary increases above the average yearonyear increase in the applicable collective bargaining agreement, or in the absence of such an agreement, in the sector, will not be computed.
Salary increases resulting from the strict application of regulations contained in legal provisions and collective bargaining agreements concerning length of service and regulatory rises in occupational classification, together with those salary increases due to any other reason also regulated in legal provisions or collective bargaining agreements, will be excluded from the foregoing.
Pluriemployment:
The bases for which the various companies have contributed will compute in full; however, the sum of said bases may not exceed the contribution ceiling in force at any time.
Pluriactivity:
When contributions are accredited under various systems, and the worker is not entitled to a pension under one of these systems, the Contribution Bases accredited in the latter under a pluriactivity system may be added to those in the system where a pension can be claimed, exclusively for determining the BR of the same; however, the sum of said bases may not exceed the contribution ceiling in force at any time.
Cases for exoneration of payments(*):
For periods of activity in which no contributions have been made for common contingencies (except for the Temporary Disability benefit), because the exemption provided for in Article 152 of the General Law on Social Security applies to workers employed by another person and worker or workermembers of cooperatives who have reached the age for access to the retirement pension, the following rules shall be taken into account:
 The bases used will be those which would have been contributed, unless they exceed the result of increasing the average of the contribution bases for the immediately preceding calendar year by the average known variation in the CPI for the last year, plus two percentage points.
 If the contribution bases declared are greater than the average of those from the previous year, increased in accordance with rule 1, that amount is taken as the contribution basis.
 In order to calculate the average indicated in rule 1, the contribution bases will be taken for the activity and company for which contribution is exempt and for the working day comparable to the one worked.
 If there are no contribution bases in any of the monthly payments of the previous calendar year, the average of the existing contributions is divided by the number of months for these payments.
 If there are no contribution bases for the activity subject to payment exemptions, the contribution bases taken are those of the interested party working as an employee during the year prior to the beginning of the exemption, for a working day comparable to the one exempt from contributions.
 If there are no contribution bases for the previous year, we take the contribution bases in the first year they do exist, calculating the average as per rule 1 and applying the rules cited in the foregoing sections. Said average will be raised by the average percentage variation of the calendar year or years until reaching the year in which payment exemption commences.
Contribution basis to be taken into consideration in the benefit calculation bases for caring for children or fostered minors:
 When the period considered contributed for the purposes of benefit for caring for children or fostered minors falls within the calculation period for determining the benefit base rate, the contribution basis we take into account will be the average of the beneficiary's contribution bases for the 6 months immediately preceding when contributions begin their suspension or, if applicable, when contribution is intermittent, those corresponding to the six months contributed immediately preceding the period computed.
 It the beneficiary does not have the aforementioned 6 months' contributed, we compute the average of the contribution bases that are accredited, corresponding to the period immediately preceding contribution suspension.
Percentage
Percentage applicable from 01012013:
The percentage varies depending on the number of years the individual has been making Social Security contributions. A scale is applied that begins with 50% at 15 years, increasing from the sixteenth year by 0.19% for each additional contribution month from month 1 to month 248, and by 0.18% for those who pass month 248, with the percentage applicable to the base pension never exceeding 100%, except in cases where the individual accesses their pension at a later age than is applicable to them.
Once this sum is determined, the corresponding sustainability factor for the given time is applied. The application of this sustainability factor has been postponed by Law 6/2018, of 3 July, on the General State Budget for 2018.
In any case, it shall enter into force no later than 1 January 2023.
However, until 2027, a gradual, transitional period has been established, in which the above percentages are replaced with the following:

Transitional maintenance of maternity supplement
People who, on 422021, were receiving the demographic contribution maternity supplement will continue to receive it.
The receipt of the maternity supplement will be incompatible with the new contributory pension supplement for the reduction of the gender gap, and the persons concerned may choose between one or the other.
If the other parent of one of the children who was entitled to the maternity supplement applies for the contributory pension supplement and is entitled to receive it, the monthly amount recognised shall be deducted from the maternity supplement, with financial effects from the first day of the month following that of the decision, provided that the decision is issued within six months of the application or, where applicable, of the recognition of the pension that gave rise to it; after this period, the effects shall take effect from the first day of the seventh month following that of the decision.
Supplement for the reduction of the gender gap
The contributory pension supplement for the reduction of the gender gap, replaces the maternity supplement for demographic contribution with a supplement aimed at reducing the gender gap, which seeks to repair the harm that women have suffered throughout their professional career for assuming a major role in the task of caring for children, which is projected in the area of pensions.
Percentage applicable to those who fall under legislation prior to 01/01/2013:
The percentage varies depending on the number of years the individual has been making Social Security contributions. A scale is applied that begins with 50% at 15 years, increasing by 3% for each additional year between the sixteenth and twentyfifth year and 2% from the twentysixth year until reaching 100% at 35 years.

The contribution years to take into account are those made:

To the General Social Security System.

To the different Special Social Security Systems.

To the former Old Age Insurance and Disability Systems and/or Labour Union.

To the integrated Systems, including those prior to the introduction of these if they count towards the right to the benefits they give rise to.

To other Social Security Entities, which act as substitutes for those corresponding to the regime or regimes that are yet to be integrated.

Contributions paid to the State Pensioners Regime.(Régimen de Clases Pasivas del Estado).

To the Public Administrations and organisations attached to them prior to 010159 by personnel who did not hold civil servant positions.

The contributions of staff in the Justice System shall be treated as periods of contributions where there is a difference between the periods actually worked as shown on the certificate of service and those shown on the certificate of contributions. These periods will not be included in the databases of the Social Security General Treasury and will therefore be treated as having contributed, at the request of the person concerned, at the time when the corresponding pension is paid or reviewed.
Rules for calculating the contribution years:
If the contributions were made prior to 010167, all the days for which contributions were made will be taken into account and the total number of days will be divided by 365 to get the number of years of contributions. A fraction of a year cannot be counted as a full year, given that, once the first fifteen years of contributions are completed, the percentage applicable to the pension base increases with each additional month in which contributions are made.
If contributions were made prior to 010167, the number of contribution years is calculated by dividing the total number of contribution days by 365 (without rounding up a fraction of a year to a full year) obtained from the sum of the following contributions:
 Days of contributions to the General System and other regimes from 010167.
 Days of contributions to Old Age Insurance and Labour Unions between 010160 and 311266, provided these do not overlap.

The bonus days which correspond to the worker, according to the age reached on 010167, as long as contributions are accredited to the Old Age and Disability Insurance and/or Labour Insurance, in accordance with the following scale:
Age on 010167  Years  Days

Supplement for workers over the legally established age.
 When access to the retirement pension occurs at an age that is above the ordinary retirement age applicable for any given case, provided that on reaching this age the minimum contribution periodrequired has been met , the interested party shall be paid a financial supplement for each full year of contributions since they met the requirements for accessing this pension, which shall be paid in one of the following ways, at their choice.


An additional percentage of 4% for each full year of contributions made between the date on which this age was reached and the date of the causal event of the pension.
The additional percentage obtained will be added to what would generally be awarded to the worker according to the number of years they have contributed, applying the resulting percentage to the base rate to determine the pension amount, which may never exceed the ceiling established for contributory pensions in the corresponding LPGE.
If the amount of the pension awarded reaches the established ceiling without applying the additional percentage or by only applying it in part, the worker will receive:
 The maximum pension.
 An amount calculated by applying the additional percentage not used for determining the pension amount (rounded up to the closest unit) to the maximum pension stipulated at any given time. The aforementioned amount will be paid a month in arrears and in 14 payments a year. The sum of the amount of the pension or pensions awarded to the worker, calculated on an annual basis, may not exceed the ceiling figure for the contribution basis stipulated at any time, also calculated on an annual basis.

A lump sum amount for each full year of contributions paid between the date on which that age was reached and the date of the causal event of the pension, the amount of which shall be determined on the basis of the years of contributions credited on the first of the dates indicated, the calculation formula being as follows:

If less than 44 years and 6 months of contributions were made:
 If they have paid contributions for at least 44 years and 6 months, the above figure is increased by 10%:
Where the amount of the recognised pension exceeds the ceiling applicable on the date of the causal event, for the calculation of the lump sum amount, that maximum limit will be taken as the initial annual pension.

 A combination of the above solutions (mixed option) provided that they have at least two full years of contributions between the date on which they reached the ordinary retirement age and the date of the causal event giving rise to the retirement pension. In this case, the supplement shall be fixed as follows:
 When a period of two to ten full years of contributions is credited between the date of reaching the applicable ordinary retirement age and the date of the causal event giving rise to the retirement pension, the supplement will consist of the sum of:
 An additional 4 per cent for each year in the middle of that period, taking the lower whole number. The forecasts set out in point 1 shall apply to this percentage.
 A lump sum amount for the remainder of the period concerned, determined in accordance with point 2.
 Where a period of eleven or more full years of contributions has been credited between the date of reaching the applicable normal retirement age and the date of the causal event giving rise to the pension, the supplement shall consist of the sum of:
 A lump sum amount for five years of that period, determined in accordance with point 2.
 An additional 4 per cent for each of the remaining years, to which the provisions set out in point 1 shall apply.
 When a period of two to ten full years of contributions is credited between the date of reaching the applicable ordinary retirement age and the date of the causal event giving rise to the retirement pension, the supplement will consist of the sum of:

For the purpose of calculating the contribution period to be considered, full years shall be taken into account, without a fraction of a year being treated as a year.
 Whatever the modality chosen, for the calculation of the contribution period to be taken into account, periods of time spent in situations assimilated to that of registration that do not involve actual work will not be taken into account.

The choice shall be made only once at the time of applying for the pension, and may not be changed thereafter. If not exercised, the supplement referred to in point 1 shall apply.

Receipt of this supplement is incompatible with access to active ageing (active retirement), so that:

If they have chosen to receive the supplement in the form of an additional percentage, it will be suspended for as long as the regime of compatibility of work and retirement pension provided for in Article 214 of the TRLGSS (active retirement) applies.

If they have chosen to receive the supplement in the form of a lump sum amount or under the mixed formula, it will not be possible to apply the regime of compatibility of work with the retirement pension provided for in Article 214 of the TRLGSS.


This benefit will not be applicable in cases of partial or flexible retirement, nor when retirement age reduction coefficients are applied. Therefore, this benefit will only apply to workers who, on the date of the causal event, are awarded a retirement pension at an age that is above the legally established age for ordinary retirement.

Additional percentage for people to whom the legislation prior to 01/01/2013 is applicable:
 A total of 2% for each full year of contributions, or year when contributions are legally considered to have been made, from the date on which the worker reached the age of 65 until the date of the causal event of the pension.
 A total of 3% when the worker accredits at least 40 years contributed when they reach the age of 65.

Workers who were members of Mutual Insurance Societies on 1 January 1967, or equivalent:
For those beginning to receive a retirement pension at an older age than the legal minimum, the amount of the pension will be calculated on the basis of article 210 of the LGSS.
Parttime Workers
 The base rate for retirement pensions and Permanent Disability benefit is reached using the general rule.
 For the purpose of determining the amount of retirement pensions and Permanent Disability pensions due to Common Disease, in the case of parttime work, all the periods during which the worker has been on sick leave shall be taken into consideration, regardless of the length of the working day.
 The percentage to be applied to the respective base rate will be determined in accordance with the general scale (Article 210 and ninth transitional provision of the General Law on Social Security), and will take into account the days on which the worker has been registered, irrespective of the length of the working day.
(*) Exoneration of contributions for workers aged 65 and over:
As of 01/01/2013:
Employers and workers will be exempted from having to pay Social security contributions for common disease and illness, except for temporary disability resulting from these, for salaried employees with indefinite work contracts as well as working members of cooperatives, provided they are in one of the following cases:
 65 years of age and 38 years and 6 months contributed.
 67 years of age and 37 years contributed.
In both the aforementioned cases, the proportional parts of extra salary payments will not enter into the calculation of years contributed.
If, upon reaching the ages mentioned in the previous points, the worker had not contributed the number of required years in each case, the exemption will be applicable as of the date when the required years of contribution can be accredited in either case.
These exemptions will not be applicable to contributions for workers employed by Public Administrations or in Public Organisations regulated by Title III of Law 6/1997, passed on 14 April, on the organisation and functioning of the General State Administration.
For workers for whom contribution exemptions were applied, provided for in article 112 bis prior to 1 January 2013 and who are entitled to a retirement pension after said date, the period for which said exemptions have been applied will be considered as a period of paid contributions for the purposes of calculating the corresponding pension.
For people to whom the legislation prior to 01/01/2013 is applicable:
Employers and workers will be exempt from Social Security contributions for unemployment, Wage Guarantee Fund, vocational training and for common disease and illness, except for the temporary disability that may result from them, for salaried employees with indefinite work contracts as working members of cooperatives, provided they are 65 years of age or over and they can accredit 35 years' effective contributions to the Social Security (proportional parts of extra salary payments do not enter into this calculation).
If, upon reaching 65 years of age, the worker had not paid 35 years' contributions, the exemption will be applicable as of the date on which said 35 years' effective contributions can be accredited.
These exemptions will not be applicable to contributions for workers employed by Public Administrations or in Public Organisations regulated by Title III of Law 6/1997, passed on 14 April, on the organisation and functioning of the General State Administration.
