Sad tek vidim da je ledeni blesnuo 14.040 chf, sto je isto toliko eura.

Ako sam dobro procitao sada, dovoljna je jedna godina zaposlenosti, onda docekas 65-u, i onda imas pravo na djelomicnu (partial) penziju.
Za punu starosnu minimalnu mirovinu ti treba 44 godine staza u Svicarskoj, i 65 godina starosti. Dobijes 1225 eura mjesecno.
Sad, ako imas samo jednu godinu staza, kad podjelis 1225 sa 44 dobijes 27.8 eura. Tom logikom, za 5 godina imas pravo na 139 eura.
Sasvim je moguce da ta ljestvica ide malo drugacije, ali nisam uspio iskopati kako. Ako se drze logike, trebalo bi biti kako sam napisao.

Ja sam radio 3 sezone sa svajcarskim ugovorom i sumnjam da ce mi to biti obracunato ako i docekam srpsku penziju. Verovatno bi morao da se iscimam da mi srpsko penziono prizna taj svajcarski staz i da kontaktiram kompanije za koje sam radio. A tih 7 godina koliko je ledeni radio retko ko i doceka neki kao i invalidi na recnom brodu. Ja sam izdrzao 4 sezone.

donshone, upravo sam apdejtirao svoj post, procitaj.
Ti se dobro informiraj kod svicaraca, pokupi info sto prije, a Srbiju ne treba biti briga sto ti imas jos jednu ili nekoliko penzija iz drugih drzava.
Nema Srbija sta priznavati ili ne priznavati, ovo ce ti isplacivati Svicarska.
