The National House of Social Insurance (CNAS) in April made transfers for paying all types of social benefits, including pensions paid abroad to the value of 1.277 million lei, IPN reports.
In a press release, the CNAS says that under the international social security agreements signed by Moldova with Romania, Bulgaria, Portugal, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Luxemburg, Belgium, Lithuania, Austria, Estonia, and Germany, since they took effect until April the CNAS set 824 pensions.
As many as 270 pensions were set and transferred to citizens living in Romania, while 217 pensions, including old-age, disability and successor’s pensions, to the Federal Republic of Germany, under the agreement that came into force on March 1, 2019.
The CNAS will apply simplified and efficient methods for confirming life certificates for recipients of pensions from other states so as not to interrupt the payment process. The life certificates can be presented to the CNAS by any acceptable method, such as letter, email or fax.
