North Macedonia’s Minister of Labor and Social Policy Jovanka Trynchevska held a meeting today with members of the Board of Directors of the Macedonian Society of Pensioners’ Associations (SZPM) to discuss current issues affecting pensioners.
During the meeting, as stated in the announcement of the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, policies and procedures previously implemented that directly benefit retirees were reviewed.
Earlier this year, the new pension adjustment methodology was adopted, which required an adjustment of 50 percent to the cost of living and 50 percent to the median salary. This agreement will be concluded twice a year, in September and March.
“As the government, we focus on creating and implementing systemic solutions that lead to long-term results. Together with retirees, we have come up with a solution that provides a continuous increase in pensions and enables everyone to live a more dignified life.” He said.
Trenchevska said that during the economic and energy crisis, the government, through the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, provided financial support to about 330,000 retirees, with a total of 3,000 dinars for the months of March, April and May. The latest package of anti-crisis measures with financial support.
