JANUARY 1, 2005 will mark the start of the pension reform in Slovakia, when citizens will be able to assign part of their pension insurance payments to their personal accounts in private asset management companies, the SITA news wire reported on December 16.
The news comes after the parliament's passage of the pension savings law, which introduces the pension system's capitalization pillar. Capitalization pillar funds will be the private property of citizens and will be inheritable in the event of the policyholder's death. Revenues in the capitalization pillar will not be taxed.
