Abstract In accordance to the act dated 24.01.1991 refeRring to combatants, victims of repression repressed in the years 1940-1956 apply for relevant pensions. There have been 6510 petitions for relevant pensions related to repression registered between 01.09.1997 to 31.12.2003 in the Social Insurance Department in Szczecin. It is very difficult to form an opinion of long lasting incapability to work related to repression ceasing over 50 years ago. During the medical examination most patents were 60 and over years old and have since retired. The actual system of relevant pensions in connection with repression made by Social Insurance Department is considered compensatory. It seems feasible to consider a new equal compensation system for all cases of repression.
