About Liable persons

The Pension and Disability Insurance Institute as the provider of pension and disability insurance requires certain data for the implementation of pension and disability insurance, the latter being used in the establishing of qualification conditions and benefit assessment when an insured event occurs. The records of insured persons and contributors contain data on insurance registration, earnings or insurance bases and contributions paid. Legal entities and natural persons liable for reporting these data and the payment of contributions are called contributors. The law does not prescribe one and the same entity liable for reporting data and the payment of contributions for individual categories of the insured.
