UAPF data as of July 1, 2022
As of July 1, 2022, pension savings in the amount of KZT13.4 trillion were formed on the accounts of contributors of the Unified Accumulative Pension Fund, having increased over the year, that is, compared to July 1, 2021, by more than KZT616 billion (or 4.8%) .
The main amount of pension savings was formed at the expense of compulsory pension contributions (CPC) and amounted to almost KZT13 trillion (an increase of 2.2% since the beginning of the year, 4.4% over the year). The amount of pension savings on compulsory occupational pension contributions (COPC) amounted to KZT394.3 billion, having increased by 19% since July 1, 2021. More than KZT2.7 billion have been accumulated on voluntary pension contributions accounts - this is where the most significant increase is observed - 48% higher than the same period last year.
In general, savings increased primarily due to pension contributions. For six months of 2022, pension contributions in the total amount of about KZT811.3 billion were received on the accounts of contributors. Of the total contributions, more than 95% are receipts to the UAPF for the CPC: KZT772.5 billion have been transferred since the beginning of the year to the CPC of working citizens. Approximately KZT37.5 billion was received on individual pension accounts for the COPC of workers employed in hazardous working conditions. KZT1.3 billion has been transferred since the beginning of the year to the accounts under the VPC.
After a decline in investment income in May of this year, the return indicators went up again, covering temporary losses. As a result, in six months, the net investment income of contributors exceeded KZT338 billion.
The number of individual pension saving accounts in the UAPF for all types of contributions as of July 1, 2022 also amounted to 11.9 million units (2.7% growth over the year). The largest number of accounts opened for compulsory pension contributions (CPC) - 10,879,857 units. The number of accounts formed at the expense of the COPC increased by almost 9% over the year and amounted to 573,754 units. The greatest growth of IPSA is observed in accounting for VPC - their number increased almost 6 times during the year and reached 303,592 units. It should be noted that a significant increase in VPC continues due to the fact that unclaimed amounts of guarantee compensation for contributors were transferred from the Kazakhstan Deposit Guarantee Fund (KDGF) to the UAPF for crediting to individual pension saving accounts (IPSA) to account for voluntary pension contributions (VPC). At the same time, the funds received as the VPC begin to be invested and investment income is accrued on them.
Since the beginning of the year, UAPF has paid KZT984.2 billion. Most of the benefit payments were lump-sum pension benefits (LSPB) for the improvement of housing conditions and treatment - about KZT849.4 billion. Old age benefits amounted to KZT57.3 billion, inheritance benefits - KZT34 billion, payments in connection with leaving for permanent residence outside the Republic of Kazakhstan - KZT25.6 billion, about KZT13.8 billion were transferred to insurance organizations, burial payments - KZT2.8 billion and disability benefits - KZT1.2 billion.
It should be noted that the amount of the average monthly benefit according to the schedule from the UAPF (in connection with reaching retirement age) amounted to 29,794 tenge, and the maximum amount of a monthly payment was 707,326 tenge.
