“Good news for all pensioners from the Government of Montenegro. Last year, the minimum pension was 147 euros, and from today the payment of the increased minimum pension, which now amounts to 253 euros, will begin”, said Abazović regarding the increase in the minimum pension.
The Prime Minister said that, in a short period of time, with the help of rebalancing and all those who supported that proposal, they made it possible for pensioners to receive significantly higher benefits than in the previous period in these difficult times.
“We believe that with good work and commitment, we will be able to increase other pensions in the coming years and help, especially in these times of crisis, to overcome the difficult financial situation”, Abazović said in his address to the pensioners.
The Prime Minister stated that the Government is thinking of the generations of citizens who built and created Montenegro and that everything must be done to repay them in the best possible way.
“I hope that we will soon announce some more good news about you because we intend to also ease your financial situation through one-time assistance. I wish you good health and that you spend your pensions in the best possible way”, concluded Abazović.
