Moldovan citizens who have worked or are working on the territory of the French Republic, upon reaching retirement age, could benefit from the right to pensions and social benefits. This was announced by Parliament’s representatives in an information note stating that the initiative to conclude an agreement in the field between the two states belongs to the Moldovan authorities and is conditioned by a significant number of citizens operating in France.

At Wednesday’s meeting, the Committee on Foreign Policy and European Integration endorsed the process of initiating negotiations on the draft Agreement between Moldova and the French Republic in the field of social security.

The provisions of the draft Agreement shall apply to persons who are or have been subject to the legislation of one or both Contracting States (employees, self-employed persons, posted workers, staff of international transport undertakings, staff of diplomatic missions, and consular posts, etc.).

The document also provides for the granting of old-age pensions, disability pensions caused by general illnesses, pensions and disability benefits due to accidents at work or caused by occupational diseases, survivor’s pensions. According to the proportional principle of calculating pensions, each state will pay the pension calculated in proportion to the insurance period completed on its territory.

According to the draft, the Agreement is concluded for an indefinite period.

Moldova has so far signed 14 agreements in the field of social security with the following states: Romania, Portugal, Bulgaria, Luxembourg, Austria, Estonia, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Belgium, Lithuania, Germany, Turkey, Republic of Belarus.
