The Moldovan citizens who work legally in Spain will receive social welfare. The third round of negotiations on the draft social security agreement between the Republic of Moldova and Spain and the draft administrative arrangement for implementing the agreement are held online during April 21-22, 2021, IPN reports, quoting the National House of Social Insurance (CNAS).
The agreement guarantees the Moldovan and Spanish citizens the right to an old-age pension, successor’s pension, pension for disability caused by common illnesses, workplace accidents and occupational diseases from the state in which the person worked legally. Those who worked legally will fully benefit from pension rights, regardless of the place of domicile in the future. Each state will apply the national legislation in the field and the pension will be transferred to the beneficiary on the territory of the state in which the person lives at present.
Currently, the National House of Social Insurance applies 14 social security agreements based on European proportionality principles, with Romania, Portugal, Bulgaria, Luxemburg, Austria, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Belgium, Lithuania, Germany, Turkey, and Belarus. Under these agreements, 1,100 persons receive benefits from the CNAS.
