The goal of reform started in the year 2003 is transition to a three-pillar pension system based on accumulation. :
Any person may start accumulating pension after signing a pension accumulation agreement that will come into effect on 1 January of the next year.
The pension accumulation agreement may be drawn each year by 1 July, but the labour market newcomers (who were issued the social insurance certificate for the first time) – by 1 October.
Amount of allocated assets:
3.5 per cent of wage – in the year 2005;
4.5 per cent of wage – in the year 2006;
5.5 per cent of wage – in the year 2007 and in later years.
Based on data of the Social Security and Labour Ministry, the average wage at the close of I Q 2005 amounted to LTL 1,270, the average pension in June 2005 – LTL 396.
A person participating in all tree Pillars of the pension fund has an opportunity to accumulate the largest pension assets. Thus your social wealth depends not only on the situation in the country but also on timely investment solutions.
