The document applies to citizens permanently residing in these states and having work experience in their territories. Insurance premiums will be paid in accordance with the legislation of the state in which citizens work, regardless of their place of residence. The pension will be paid on the territory of the pensioner's country of residence.
In total, Belarus has signed 12 treaties in the field of social (pension) security. Recently, these international documents are based on the proportional principle: granting pension by the state within the territory of which an insured worked and premiums were paid. Such treaties were signed with Lithuania, Russia, Latvia, Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, and Estonia. In 2019, treaties were also signed with Poland and within the EAEU, but they have not yet entered into force. Work is also underway to conclude a treaty with Bulgaria.
