The former Croatian president Stjepan Mesic is just one of some 6,000 Croatian retirees receiving pensions from Serbia, the Serbian press has reported.
These people used to work in Serbia and have paid contributions to the countrys fund for pension and disability insurance (PIO Fond).
The director of public relations sector of the PIO Fond Jelica Timotijevic says that all of those who had worked for the presidency of the former Yugoslavia, for example and have later become state officials and politicians in their own countries have a right to a Serbian pension based on individual agreements between Serbia and the former republics.
Serbia pays retirement payments to a total of approximately 24,000 people in all former Yugoslav states, the daily Vecernji List writes.
Nice gig for a genocide denier.
We have a problem here with social security retirees,some not even US citizens who collect and live abroad. We should pass a law that states if you want to collect a pension or social security you must reside in the country where those pensions are issued..
