JULY

Slovak pensioners are guaranteed a minimum pension as of July 1. Under the new rules, the social security provider Sociálna Poisťovňa pays the minimum pension to everyone who has worked and paid old-age pension insurance for at least 30 years and reached the retirement age. The sum for them amounts to 136 percent of the subsistence level, which is €269.50 a month this year.

Bratislava-based company AeroMobil R&D which is developing a flying car was granted investment assistance of €6 million from the state for research and development activities. AeroMobil R&D should invest €8 million.
