Mandatory conditions for the appointment of SSB are reaching 55 years of age and professional pension contributions made to the Unified Accumulative Pension Fund (UAPF) for at least 7 years. The benefit will be paid until retirement age. To receive a special social benefit, you need to leave a job with harmful working conditions. Employees can transfer to light work, then they will receive a salary and benefit, or go on vacation and receive a special social benefit until a pension is assigned.

Considering the mandatory conditions for the appointment of SSB, according to the UAPF, more than 37 thousand employees will be able to apply for it in 2024, in 2030 - over 58 thousand, in 2035 - more than 95 thousand. Thus, the number of potential recipients of the benefit will be annually increasing.

According to preliminary data, the average size of special social benefit will generally be over 208 thousand tenge in 2024. The size of the benefit for each employee will depend on the savings in the UAPF. In the meantime, the amount of special social benefit will grow annually due to an increase in minimum wage. Thus, according to preliminary calculations, in 2030 the average payment will be 339 thousand tenge, and in 2035 – 519 thousand tenge.

“As of March 11 of this year, 2,661 payments were made to 1,156 recipients in the amount of 244.9 million tenge in the country, including 10 recipients were paid in the amount of 2.3 million tenge in the West Kazakhstan region,” said Svetlana Zhakupova.
