They are one of the most sensitive social categories.
Likewise, beneficiaries of the basic old-age pension and beneficiaries of premature pensions must appear at the Pension Departments, once every six months with the relevant identification documents.
This is provided for in the law on state-funded pension schemes.
Pensioner Bajram Arifaj considers that this verification procedure is unnecessary.
Even Nezir Bunjaku sees this procedure as problematic, especially for those who are not in good physical condition.
But not everyone has the same opinion.
But can it be considered a violation of dignity for this category, the obligation to prove every month that they are alive?
Emerllahu states that the state must create special mechanisms to prove that a person is alive or not.
The television has also sent questions to the Department of Pensions in the Ministry of Finance, Labor and Transfers to ask them if they will form any special mechanism to fix this issue, but they have not returned an answer.
