PENSION MONEY: They give an unprecedented amount of money for supplements for pensioners in April
Pensioners will receive an additional BGN 106 million in April. This was said at the Bilinski Monastery by the Minister of Finance Kiril Ananiev.
According to him, this is the supplement of BGN 50, which the government has undertaken as a commitment to be paid until the end of the emergency epidemic situation. “At this stage, it is until April 30 and the BGN 50 is guaranteed,” Ananiev was quoted as saying by BTA.
According to him, we are in an emergency situation from the point of view of the pandemic and if it continues, the government has the power to extend this payment. “At this point, the elderly need additional help, both related to drugs and greater difficulty in eating,” Ananiev said. According to him, these people have done a lot of building the state and deserve such a good gesture.
“In no case is this gesture pre-election, the funds are intended for the needs that people have,” Ananiev was adamant.
The Minister of Finance attended a solemn water dedication in the completely renovated church in the Bilin Monastery “St. Archangel Michael” in the municipality of Breznik. The monastery is one of the oldest monasteries in Western Bulgaria. According to historical and archaeological research, it dates from the 10th-11th century. It was renovated with funds from the Rural Development Program 2014 – 2020. The project is worth BGN 560,000.
