On Wednesday, June 12, Minister of labor and social protection of population of RK Berdibek Saparbayev presented at the plenary session in the Mazhylis of the Parliament of RK draft Laws "On compulsory social insurance" and "On amendments to some legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on issues of compulsory social insurance".
The draft laws were developed on behalf of the First President of RK – Elbasy and are aimed at strengthening the relationship between work experience and the amount of payments in the system of compulsory social insurance, as well as ensuring from 2020 the growth of social payments for disability, loss of breadwinner and loss of work by an average of 30%.
In particular, it is planned to revise the coefficient of experience in the system for recipients whose experience exceeds 5 years, which is used in determining the size of the three types of social benefits. To date, the maximum value of this coefficient is 1.0 for citizens with experience of participation from 5 years and above. It is proposed to increase the coefficient by 2% for each full year over 5 years of experience in the system.
In order to increase the level of social protection of persons with disabilities, it is proposed to determine the amount of social benefits for disability based on the actual established medical and social examination of the degree of disability (from 30% to 100%).
In order to increase the social security of families without a breadwinner, it is proposed to increase the amount of social benefits by increasing the dependency ratios.
In addition, the draft Law provides for an increase in the income replacement rate from 30% to 40% for recipients of social benefits for loss of work, as well as an increase in the duration of social benefits from 4 to 6 months, depending on the experience of participation in the system.
At the same time, in order to prevent a gap between the amount of social payments of new and established recipients, it is proposed to carry out a one-time recalculation of the amount of social payments with the use of new parameters for the recipients of social payments for disability and loss of breadwinner on January 1, 2020.
