430,000 applications for a pensioners’ card
So far, 430,000 people have applied for the pensioners’ card, which provides discounts and benefits to the oldest citizens of Serbia, while about 200 companies from entire Serbia have applied for discounts to pensioners in the first week since the launch of the campaign.
This was stated in Nis by director of the Republic Pension and Disability Insurance Fund, Relja Ognjenovic. He pointed out that pensioners’ cards were valid throughout the territory of our country, and the amount of discounts varied from company to company.
“The discounts that the companies approve will be highlighted on our website, and later we will inform pensioners through the application about additional discounts and campaigns that are ongoing,” Ognjenovic said.
Nis City Mayor Dragana Sotirovski said that there was a great interest among pensioners in Nis in obtaining a card that would allow them to have discounts.
She said that city enterprises and institutions responded to the call of the city to participate in the fund’s campaign, and as she said, the private sector „also responded well“.
So far, fifteen privately owned and city-run enterprises and institutions have responded to the call for granting discounts to pensioners in Nis.
