The effective and efficient organisation of the pension protection system belongs nowadays to the most difficult and important social issues. A dispute around the Polish pension system goes on. It also concerns the rules for functioning of Individual Pension Accounts (IPA). They are a sort of pension plan in the 3rd pillar – a way of saving money for additional pension. They were introduced by the Act of Parliament of 20th April 2004 about individual pension accounts (Journal of Laws of 2004 No 116 pos. 1205). To create a second, next to the Occupational Pensions Authority (PPE), institutional solution (IPA) was currently working to encourage additional private savings collection that will keep people passing into retirement satisfactory standard of living for them.
