According to the new pension bill, about 65 percent of the employees will only collect the minimum pension, president of the 'Cartel Alfa' National Trade Union Confederation Bogdan Hossu told a press conference in Zalau on Wednesday.
The new Pension Law doesn't provide for any change of Pillar II (mandatory private pension fund, ed. n.), but 0.5 pct of the fee charged by companies in this sector will be directed to the National Pension Office, Minister of Labor and Social Justice Lia Olguta Vasilescu told a press conference on Friday.
Pension funds will be required to provide estimates of the future amount of retirement benefits. This includes changes to the Social Security Code (CSR), published on the website of the Ministry of Finance. The aim is that the insured persons in voluntary pension funds can better plan their old-age savings.
