AMOUNT OF EARLY OLD-AGE PENSIONS

The amount of the early old-age pension is determined in the same way as the amount of the old-age pension, provided that the amount determined is permanently reduced by 0.34% for each month before age 65, and can be reduced by up to 20.4%.

Insured persons who have an extended service account and are entitled to a lower age limit for obtaining the right to an old-age pension, the amount of the early retirement pension is determined by deducting 0.34% for each month of early retirement compared to the age limit established by the lowering.

EXERCISING THE RIGHT

The right to early old-age pension is realized by submitting a claim to the Republic Fund for Pension and Disability Insurance, after the termination of insurance, except for the insured persons who perform activities in accordance with the law governing the work of private entrepreneurs (self employed persons) who may exercise the right to early retirement pension by fulfilling the conditions for acquiring the right to early old-age pension.

Early old-age pension shall be paid from the date of fulfillment of the conditions, if the claim is submitted within six months from the date of fulfillment of the conditions prescribed for acquiring the right, i.e. from the date of termination of insurance, and if the claim is submitted after the expiry of that period, from the date of application and for previous six months.

Upon termination of such employment, or performing that activity, the insured person is entitled to a re-determination of the amount of the pension, provided that (on that basis) he has been insured for at least one year. During the employment period, pension and disability insurance and health insurance contributions are paid.
