The contribution to 2nd pillar pension funds consists of two parts: 3% of the participant’s monthly wage and 1.5% of the national average wage from the State Budget.
3rd pillar pension funds refer to supplementary voluntary pension accumulation. Funds are transferred by participants themselves or by their employers.
