National pension from 2021?
HDZ's election promise
A small initial working group appointed by the ministry of labour has been preparing the introduction of national pension and new labour minister Josip Aladrovic says it will be expanded with representatives of pensioner associations, social partners and the academia. This is a pension that would be paid to everyone older than 65 who were never employed or were in paid employment for less than 15 years and are therefore not entitled to pension. Its introduction is one of HDZ's election promises.
