The UAPF informs its contributors and recipients about the increasing cases of scammers spreading unreliable information on social networks.
By using social networks and WhatsАpр messaging, scammers are writing about the possibility of withdrawing pension savings without taking into account the minimum pension savings threshold (MPST) during the period from June to September of this year. This message is fake and does not correspond to reality.
The legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan provides for the use of pension savings formed from mandatory pension contributions (MPC) and/or mandatory professional pension contributions (MPPC) for the purpose of improving housing conditions and/or paying for medical treatment if:
- the amount of pension savings exceeds the minimum pension savings threshold. In this case, the amount above the MPST can be used;
- for established pensioners, the pension amount ensures a replacement ratio of the recipient's average monthly income of no less than 40 percent, determined in the manner established by the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan. In this case, a one-time pension payment cannot exceed 50 percent of the amount of pension savings from the MPC and/or MPPC of the contributor (recipient) on the date of receipt of the initial electronic notification from the authorized operator;
- a pension annuity contract has been concluded with an insurance organization. In this case, the funds remaining in the individual pension account can be used.
Receiving pension payments before reaching retirement age (at which the MPST is not taken into account) is possible only in cases provided for by the pension legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan, namely:
. when moving permanently outside the Republic of Kazakhstan (the procedure for registration and conditions for receiving are here);
. in connection with disability of the 1st and 2nd groups established permanently (detailed information is here);
. under a pension annuity contract concluded with an insurance company.
The UAPF strongly recommends ignoring fake messages and getting information from official sources.
