Senators pass legislation on pre-retirement pensions

Senators have passed legislation on so-called pre-retirement pensions aimed at helping employees who lose work shortly before retirement. The pre-pensions would cover a period of up to five years. The advantage is that pre-retirement pay will not affect the height of regular pensions; a requirement for eligibility, however, will be to have earned an expected pension of at least some eight thousand crowns per month.
