Pension system of the Republic of Moldova: actuary expertise

3.3.4. Pensions to some categories of citizens

The pension insurance system reform strategy, adopted in the Republic of Moldova, envisaged the unification of pension rules for all categories of beneficiaries of the same pension. In this relation in 2004 the Parliament passed the Law no.273 on amendment of some legislative acts, supplementing the Law on state social insurance pensions with a separate chapter, which regulates the conditions of pension assignment to some categories of citizens, such as Parliament deputies, Cabinet members, civil servants, local delegates. The main condition of pension assignment to this category of persons is the achievement of the established pension age and special and general length of service. The deputies and Cabinet members have to work at least 2 years in this position (certainly under the condition of achieving the pension age and general length of insured service) to receive a pension of 75% out of the average monthly insured income of the current deputy or Cabinet member. The civil servants should have at least 15 years of general length of insured service in this position to be granted the right to a pension of 75% of the average monthly insured income, while the local delegates – at least 8 years.

The pensions, assigned to these categories of citizens, are financed 50% from the state social insurance budget and 50% from the state budget. It is to be mentioned that this category of beneficiaries is not numerous and constituted in 2005 – 0,8% of the total number of pensioners.
