The Government to Approve an Increase in The Old-Age Pension

A project to determine a new amount of social old-age pension will be considered by the government at its regular meeting today, 20 June. According to the project, there will be an increase in the pension, which will mainly affect the military disabled people.

Rights for a social pension have the people over 70 years of age when the annual income of a family member by the date of age completion is less than the sum of the guaranteed minimum income established for the country in the last 12 months.

Ministers will also approve additional funds for the purchase of cognitive books, textbooks, study kits and teaching aids for children and students in municipal kindergartens and schools for 2018.

In another decision, the Cabinet will approve additional spending on the budget of the Ministry of Culture for 2018. The Government will discuss a draft decision for changing the Convention on the Protection of Individuals with Regard to Automatic Processing of personal data.
