(CIANEWS) - The maximum period of early retirement will be 3 years. This follows from the amendment to the Pension Insurance Act, which was approved by the Chamber of Deputies in the first reading. The STAN movement reported that the number of people taking early retirement will increase 2.5 times to 80 653 in 2022. Their share has risen from less than 20% to 30%, which has a negative impact on state revenues. The amendment, which introduces, among other things, changes to pension indexation, will now be discussed by the Parliament's Committee on Social Policy in a shortened timeframe.
