A 100-year-old does not have to apply to ZUS, as it is a special honorary benefit that retired “ex officio” receive at the age of 100. As explained by a ZUS spokeswoman in Lodz, the honorary reward is also given to those who neither work nor receive Pension or disability pension. However, in such cases, a benefit request is required because these people are not in the ZUS system.
