Payment of annual allowance in 2017

The Pension and Disability Insurance Institute of Slovenia will pay out the annual allowance for 2017 to most beneficiaries, together with their pensions for July 2017, on Monday, 31 July 2017. Under Article 6 of the Implementation of the Republic of Slovenia’s Budget for 2017 and 2018 Act (ZIPRS1718-A) (Official Gazette RS, No 33/2017), the annual allowance for 2017 will be paid out to beneficiaries of pensions and benefits under the disability insurance scheme at the following rates:

The pension amount includes the sum total of one’s own pension and widow-er’s pension part amounts, or that of survivor’s pension amounts for children of both parents-contributors.

Under Article 74(2) of the Implementation of the Republic of Slovenia’s Budget for 2017 and 2018 Act (ZIPRS1718) (Official Gazette RS, No 80/2016), one’s pension or benefit amount also includes the amount of a pension paid by a foreign pension and disability insurance institution. In these cases, the annual allowance rate is determined by taking into account the sum total of all pensions and/or benefits paid under the Slovenian pension and disability insurance scheme, and pensions paid by a foreign pension and disability insurance institution.

As per Article 96 of the Pension and Disability Insurance Act, a beneficiary receiving a Slovenian pro rata pension will also receive a pro rata annual allowance.

Beneficiaries who on 1 January 2017 were resident in a country other than Slovenia; beneficiaries with residence in the Republic of Slovenia receiving their pro rata pension under international agreements; and beneficiaries residing in the Republic of Slovenia, who, according to information provided by the Financial Administration of the Republic of Slovenia, are in receipt of a pension paid by a foreign pension and disability insurance institution, were informed ex officio and sent a form by the end of February with the request to submit binding information on their foreign pension amount which was paid out in January 2017.

This information needed to be sent back and received by the Pension and Disability Insurance Institution of Slovenia no later than 30 April 2017 in order for the annual allowance to be paid out by 30 September 2017 (most beneficiaries will be paid out their annual allowance as early as 31 July 2017); if received by 30 September 2017, the annual allowance will be paid out by the end of 2017. Should the Pension and Disability Insurance Institute of Slovenia fail to receive the information requested by 30 September 2017, the annual allowance payable will be EUR 90.00.

Annual allowance beneficiaries becoming entitled to a pension or a benefit under the disability insurance scheme after July 2017 will receive the due part of their annual allowance when the first payment of their pension or benefit will be made.
