Diaspora members can join voluntary pension insurance

Diaspora members have the option of joining pension insurance on a voluntary basis to receive an old-age pension. This is expected this year. On August 13, the Cabinet of Ministers approved amendments to the regulations “Regulations on voluntary affiliation to the state social insurance”.

Now everyone in the Latvian diaspora has this opportunity by filing an application, either electronically or in person, with the State Social Insurance Agency for voluntary membership of the state pension insurance system. These Regulations shall enter into force as a general rule after their adoption by the Cabinet.

According to the Diaspora Law, diaspora includes Latvian citizens, Latvians and others who have ties to Latvia, as well as their family members, who are permanently resident outside Latvia.
