- The payment which transferred from “Sodra” to pension funds of 2nd pillar will increase from 1.5 to 2.5 percent since January 1, 2013;
- There are very important period (April 1 - December 1, 2013) for all who accumulates in pension funds, because they have to choose the possibility to accumulate more;
- People who sign new contract of pension accumulation, starts accumulate much earlier – after 3 months from the signing the contract;
- You will save more since 2013 – administrative taxes has descreased and it is a great benefit for people who accumulate.
All people who accumulate in pension funds of 2nd pillar have to choose between following options since April 1 until December 1, 2013:
Option I: to stop the social insurance payment transferring into the pension fund from 2014 and stay only in Sodra system. If you will decide to renew your participating in pension accumulation you will have this opportunity (January 1, 2013 and later). For this reason you must to adduce request to the pension company (but you won’t have the possibility to stop accumulation once again).
Option II: to participate in the pension accumulation system with previous conditions - to transfer fixed social insurance contribution to pension funds.
Option III: continue the accumulation by individual savings at the same time you get additional payment from the state budget. For additional payment you need to adduce an agreement to the pension company. You can’t refuse this agreement later on.
The new procedure (third option) will be applied to all new 2nd pillar pension fund participants, which sign the contracts since January 1, 2013. The new participants will have new conditions of accumulation (2+2+2) and they can not stop the signed contract.
