THE OMBUDSPERSON PUBLISHED A REPORT RELATED TO THE INABILITY OF BENEFITING FROM THE AGE CONTRIBUTION-PAYER PENSIONS FOR THE CATEGORY OF CITIZENS WHO HAVE BEEN DISMISSED FROM THE WORK DURING ’90

The Ombudsperson published the Report with Recommendation for the Government of the Republic of Kosovo and relevant Ministries with the aim to draw attention to the need of positive regulation of the contribution-payer pension for the category of citizens of the Republic of Kosovo who worked before 1999 but could not reach 15 years of pension contribution-payer work experience, not at their own fault but rather due to the discriminatory dismissal from work at the time of the interim measures imposed in Kosovo.

Within legal and constitutional authorizations, the Ombudsperson has continuously treated problems and challenges of retired people in Kosovo, including the category of contribution-payer persons who worked before 1999 but could not meet the criterion of 15 years of pension contribution-payer, as main criterion for benefiting a contribution-payer pension.

The category of citizens who have worked before 1999 and could not reach 15 years of pension contribution-payer work experience due to dismissal from work at the time of the imposition of interim measures in Kosovo following its autonomy suppression in 1989, represents the main challenge for treatment by the state of Kosovo.

The right of citizens to benefit from the contribution-payer pension for the period before 1999 consists in a contradiction between the law that has determined the criterion for benefitting from this type of pension and the principles relating to fundamental human rights, namely the right to protection of human dignity, the right not to be discriminated and the positive obligations of the state in relation to the rights of its citizens.

Due to the reasons given above and based on constitutional liabilities and positive obligations that the state has in relation with the citizens, the Ombudsperson ascertains the necessity of the Government of the Republic of Kosovo to undertake measures that all citizens who worked before 1999 and were dismissed from work on discriminatory grounds to benefit from the age contribution-payer pension. Thus the Ombudsperson has recommended:

To the Government of the Republic of Kosovo:
1. Within its constitutional and legal competencies, to take necessary measures to commence, within the shortest time possible, the amendment of the legal basis and propose the Draft law on Pensions Schemes Financed by the State to the Assembly of the Republic of Kosovo, so the category of citizens, who have worked before 1999 and were dismissed from work under discriminatory basis, benefit from contribution-payer pension. To this end, the relevant tasks need to be assigned to line ministries with regards to the preparation of legal amendments and budgetary planning, and an inter-ministerial working group should be established, as necessary.


To the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare:

1. To prepare the draft and initiate the amendment of the Law on Pension Schemes Financed by the State (LPSFS), namely its Article 8, in order to recognize the right of persons who have worked before 1999 and did not achieve the pension contribution-payer work experience of 15 years due to the dismissal from work under discriminatory basis to benefit from the contribution-payer pension;
2. To identify and classify this category of citizens of Kosovo based on relevant evidences;
3. After amending the Law, to also amend the Administrative Instruction No. 09/2015 on categorization of beneficiaries of contribute paying pensions according to qualification structure and duration of payment of contributions-pension experience, as well.

To the Ministry of Finance:

1. To take necessary measures to foresee, in addition to the pension fund means, other additional financial means in the state budget plan, in order to award pensions for this category of citizens. Within legal competencies and authorizations, to propose, within the shortest time possible, the categorization of this pensioners, in compliance with the capacity of the budget of the Republic of Kosovo.

This Report with Recommendations has been delivered to the responsible authorities and the same has been disseminated to media and published on official OI web page
