State employees have 30 days to choose between pension and state salary
People who receive both pension and a state salary will have 30 days to choose between the two incomes, Labour minister Raluca Turcan announced at the end of the Government sitting on Wednesday. At present, there are 35,000 people who are cumulating the pension with the salary from a state institution. The minister said that the draft law on banning the cumulation of pension with salary had been discussed in a first reading and that it will be approved next week and sent to be debated in Parliament.
Turcan stated that a state employee who has the legal age to retire and who wants to keep on working must submit a request to continue his activity. In the public sector, when the employee chooses to continue working, his/her right for pension is suspended.
Regarding the bonuses, they must not exceed 20% of the level of the basic salary.
