Important structural changes made to the pension system in recent years and planned amendments to the Social Insurance Act and the Pensions Act were discussed by Labour, Social Affairs and the Family Minister Viera Tomanová at a meeting on August 9 with a delegation from the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
After consultations with various experts, ILO delegation head Michael Cichon presented his opinions on the pension system reforms introduced by the former government of Mikuláš Dzurinda, along with possible changes to the system.
The ILO delegation during its three-day visit to Slovakia has met other ministry representatives as well as those of state-owned insurer Sociálna Poisťovňa, the Federation of Employers' Associations, the Republican Union of Employers, and the Trade Union Confederation.
