Future pensioners can get back into the state pension system

THE GOVERNMENT plans to offer people a chance to change their minds about entering the private pension savings funds that the pension reforms of the Mikuláš Dzurinda cabinet made possible. Citizens will be able to return to the state system if they find out that saving their pensions in a private account is not favorable to them.

Additionally, recent graduates that have just begun working will have the option to enter the second capitalization pillar instead of the obligatory entry that the former cabinet introduced. The daily Pravda got the information from the basis points of the cabinet’s program.
