Eliminating territorial jurisdiction in applications for pension and disability insurance

 

The Government approved the Act Regulating the Register of Insured Persons and those Entitled to Pension and Disability Benefits.

 

The amendments to the Act include the abolition of an article on territorial jurisdiction, which will greatly simplify the procedure of applying information about insured persons, particularly for employers.

 

Pursuant to this Act, one form is used for insured persons applying for other compulsory forms of insurance (health insurance, unemployment insurance and parental protection insurance); the scope of persons who will benefit from the simplified procedures is very wide.

 

Amendments to the Act Regulating the Register of Insured Persons and those Entitled to Pension and Disability Benefits eliminate territorial jurisdiction for submitting applications for compulsory pension and disability insurance (and applying for other compulsory insurance with the same form). The forms can be submitted to one location, and need not be changed if the insured persons or company changes the place of work or business. This will simplify business operations, particularly for businesses, both in the private and public sectors, and eliminate a major administrative obstacle, which has often been proposed by business and government bodies.
