Slovaks should save for pensions

Slovaks under the age of 50 should start saving for private pensions under new pension reforms, according to Labour Minister Ľudovít Kaník. However, he said the state would still provide pensions at a minimum of 40 per cent of the average wage, in line with international norms.

Under the reforms, those entering the workplace for the first time will have to participate in private pension schemes. The new pensions reforms would also raise the pension age to 62 for both men and women.
