On the first day of employment, a personal account is opened for the insured person. That account is intended for the employer to pay the contributions during the entire period of a person’s membership. All data are recorded, regardless of the change in the status of the insured person.
The insured person is not bound by the membership in the obligatory pension fund to pay mandatory contributions to pension insurance.
