Scheduled payments amounted to KZT 63.4 billion, of which annual payments accounted for KZT 61.9 billion, quarterly payments - 11.9 million, monthly payments- KZT1.5 billion.
SAPF also made lump-sum payments of KZT28.6 bn., including KZT1.6 bn. on old-age pensions. For comparison: SAPF paid KZT 121.2 billion for the same period last year, of which KZT 14.7 billion were transferred to insurance organizations. The decrease in volume of payments in general is explained by introduction of a monthly payment procedure, which contributes to extension of time for receiving payments and increase in total pension of recipients.
