PENSION PLAN CONTRACT - Preuzmite pravilnik
Conclude an employer and pension company. In order to organize a pension plan, an employer needs to:
- bring the decision on pension plan organising.
- conclude a pension plan contract with pension company.
- Ministry of labour, employment and socila policy issues approval on pension plan contract.
The employer is obliged to offer all employees the same requirements for membership in the pension plan and other pension plan may include certain groups of employees under specific conditions. An employee may refuse pension plan membership which in no case can be a condition of employment or membership in a trade union or association. Member of the pension plan is at the same time a member of the fund, and if his employment terminates, he is able to remain a member of the fund or transfer individual account to another fund.
The employer must notify each emoloyee on:
- terms of the pension plans.
- the approval on the pension plan contract received by the Ministry.
- the termination of his membership in the pension plan.
Also, the employer is required to notify the pension company of the termination of employment or death of the employee / member of the pension plan. If the employer intends to dismiss a pension plan, it is required to inform the members, the pension company and the Ministry at least three months prior to dissolution.
MEMBERSHIP CONTRACT WITH CONTRIBUTOR
Conclude an employee and pension company and the employer is a contributor. In this case, the procedure is much simpler than the conclusion of a pension plan.
No matter what type of the contract employer chooses, the same tax benefits apply, while the employed are members of the fund, payments are made to their individual accounts, and they are the sole owners of the funds paid.
