"On the other hand, so far a total of 12,968 persons entered the second pillar during the same period," said Lýdia Výborná, head of the communications department at social security provider Sociálna Poisťovňa.

This means pension fund management companies must return Sk2.451 billion to Sociálna Poisťovňa, of which only Sk1.741 billion has been received so far, Výborná added.

The savers who left the second pillar were mostly older than 45. SITA
