Pensions and benefits will be available for Moldovan labor migrants in Spain

Moldovan citizens who legally work or have worked on the territory of Spain will be entitled to various types of social benefits, including retirement pensions, disability pensions due to illness or work injury, as well in case of loss of breadwinner.

The agreement in social security, signed on July 21, 2022, in Madrid between the Moldovan and Spanish sides, will start operating on June 1 this year. Each state will calculate and pay pensions based on the time the worker spent in its territory by national legislation.
