YEREVAN. – On December 6, the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia is debating the bill on amendments to the law on state pensions, the Armenian News-NEWS.am correspondent reports from parliament.
According to the draft law, all former servicemen who became disabled during military service will henceforth receive a military pension, regardless of when the degree of their disability was given.
The Constitutional Court had ruled that the current law contradicts the Constitution.
According to the bill, if the family of a fallen military officer now receives 60,000 drams in compensation, the special fund of the defense ministry will pay an additional 240,000 drams a month.
