The average social insured income for the country for July 2019 is BGN 974.05, the NSSI announced.
The average monthly insurance income for the country for the last year is 945,00 BGN.

The previous government's omission to place a cap on pensions shows that the so-called Katrougalos law on social security (named after former labor minister Giorgos Katrougalos, who introduced it) was haphazardly drafted.
This is after all why many of its clauses, so many years after it was passed in Parliament, remain unenforced.
