Employers criticise Sociálna Poisťovňa over administrative costs

The National Association of Employers (RÚZ) is criticising the social security provider Sociálna Poisťovňa (SP) for its demands to use as much as 3.5 percent of the social insurance premiums it collects to cover its operating costs.

According to the draft amendment to the social insurance law approved by cabinet, SP's administrative fund would be increased from 2.9 percent of collected premiums to 3.5 percent of collected premiums.

The employers consider the government's proposal unjustified and irresponsible, especially towards citizens who will have to pay higher social insurance contributions.

According to RÚZ vice-president Jozef Špirko, citizens and companies will not only finance pensions in the first pay-as-you-go pension pillar, but also the SP bureaucracy.
