The Senate of the Parliament of Uzbekistan approved the law according to which a mechanism for collecting overpaid pensions will be introduced, Uzbek media reported.
The new procedure is stipulated by the "Law on introducing amendments and addenda to some legislative acts of the Republic of Uzbekistan in regard with improvement of the system of social protection of population and provision of housing and communal services".
In accordance with the law, in the event of a pensioner’s disagreement with the decision to withhold an overpaid pension, the revealed debt is recovered by a court, but no more than three years after it was discovered.
The law, according to the procedure, will now be sent to the president for signing.
