Moldovans who have worked in Greece will receive pensions. The Moldovan Minister of Foreign Affairs Nicu Popescu and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Greece Nikos Dendias signed, on Wednesday, September 8, in Chișinău, the Agreement in the field of social security.

According to the authorities, the ultimate goal of the treaty is for citizens of Moldova who worked in the Hellenic Republic to have a pension in that state when they reach retirement age and, at the same time, to be insured with income in the form of social benefits in case of an accident at work or an occupational disease, or the insurance of family members in the event of the death of the worker.

The documents ensure the Moldovan citizens as well as the citizens of the Hellenic Republic the right to a pension, survivor’s pension, disability pension caused by general illness, pension, and disability allowance caused by work accidents and occupational diseases from the state where he worked legally. That is, the insured persons will have the possibility to benefit from a pension regardless of the place where they will reside in the future. Each state will apply the national legislation in the field of establishing social benefits, and the pension will be transferred monthly to the beneficiary on the territory of the state where he currently resides.

The procedure for totalizing the insurance periods regulated by the agreement allows the citizens of Moldova, who have worked legally in Greece but do not have the minimum contribution period of 15 years in Moldova country, to obtain the right to a pension, calculated in proportion to the contribution periods.

The negotiation process in which participated the experts in the field of social insurance of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection, the National House of Social Insurance as well as representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration started in 2019, being carried out in several rounds.

According to the Embassy of Moldova in Greece, currently, over 8,000 Moldovans have a residence permit in this country.
