On Monday, June 24, the Minister of labor and social protection of population of Kazakhstan Berdibek Saparbayev during the reporting meeting informed about the measures on pension and social security.
"Last year we changed the order of the basic pension. Now its size depends on the length of service. As a result, the basic pension for more than 2.1 million people with work experience of more than 10 years was increased by an average of 80%," the Minister said.
According to his datas, as of June 1 this year, the average size of the basic pension amounted to 27 thousand tenge, and the average size of the total pension (solidarity and basic) amounted to 85 785 tenge.
In the past year the procedure of registration of pensions has been significantly simplified. If earlier it was necessary to submit 4 applications for the purpose of payments, now only one application is submitted to the PSC, the head of the Department noted.
Also, since January 1, 2018, the size structure of the subsistence minimum has been revised by increasing the share of non-food part in it from 40% to 45%. As a result, the social benefits tied to the value for 3 million of our citizens have grown to 16%.
In 2018, more than 6.1 million working citizens were covered by the system of compulsory social insurance. In implementation on behalf of the Elbasy to strengthen the relationship between work experience and the amount of social benefits from SSIF, a new draft Law "On compulsory social insurance" is developed, which is under consideration in the Mazhylis.
"It is expected that the amount of social benefits in case of disability, loss of breadwinner and loss of work from 2020 will increase by an average of 30%", - he concluded.
