Documents and reporting
How does the NPF work?
Individuals and/or companies make voluntary contributions to the member’s pension account. Assets are accumulated and grow at the expense of investment profits. Upon reaching the retirement age, the pensioner is paid pension benefits. During the period of pension payments, the balance still continues to generate profits.
What does the size of future pension payments depend on?
The amount of payments (pensions) depends solely on the amount of accumulation accounted at the member’s pension account at the time of appointing payments and payment time. In order to make savings work more efficiently, it is desirable to begin to make pension contributions as early as possible — a longer period of time for contributions and an increase in pension funds at the expense of the compound interest will allow you to get a larger investment income. Even small contributions done for a long time allow to accumulate the good capital.
The future pension can be calculated with the help of the “Non-State Pension Calculator”.
What legal form are the NPFS created in?
The non-state pension fund is a legal entity that has the status of a non-profit organization, operates and carries out activities exclusively for the purpose of accumulation of pension contributions of contributors in favor of the pension fund members with the further management of pension assets and performance of pension payments.
Who manages and serves the NPF?
