At the CCS briefing, Lyazzat Ibragimova, chairperson of the board of the Otbasy Housing Construction Savings Bank, named the regions leading in the number of residents who have the opportunity to withdraw part of their pension contributions ahead of schedule, Kazpravda.kz correspondent reports.
"We have 658 billion tenge of depositors registered in Almaty - this is 26.8%. That is, every third depositor is an Almaty citizen. But this is due to the fact that they are employees of the financial sector, banking, insurance, financial management companies, who always earned high wages and received them with official deductions to the UAPF. Mangistau region is in the second place - 397 billion tenge or 16.2%, "Ibragimova said.
Nur-Sultan may be in the third place, with 325.9 billion tenge or 13.3% on deposits. Atyrau region is in the fourth place - 257.4 billion tenge or 10.4%.
“These 4 regions today form more than 70% of all UAPF contributors who will participate in this program for the early use of pension savings,” the speaker added.
According to her, these data absolutely coincide with the official statistics of the Committee on Statistics.
"Four agricultural regions - Akmola, North Kazakhstan, Zhambyl and Turkestan - are at the very bottom of this table, with about 1% of depositors," the head of Otbasy Bank concluded.
On January 6, the Unified Accumulative Pension Fund (UAPF) published the size of the sufficiency thresholds for this year for using part of the pension savings for housing, medical treatment or transfer to trust.
Those depositors who, after checking their pension savings in the UAPF, decided to use part of their pension savings for housing and / or medical treatment, need to open a special account with Otbasy Bank (HCSB) online.
It should be remembered that when a part of pension savings is withdrawn, it will be necessary to pay the IIT.
