The crew of "Wilson Ghent" are concerned about the pension related issues

9_08_Morjaki_image_for_full_16772_2_2443.jpgThe crew members of the container ship "Wilson Ghent" (the flag of Malta, IMO: 9150236) are satisfied with the working conditions in general, but are concerned about  retirement related issues, including early retirement. The seafarers told about their concerns the Inspectors of the SUR Baltic Territorial  Organization (BTO) during their visiting the "Wilson Ghent".

The owner of the vessel is the company "WILSON SHIPOWNING AS", the crew consists of 8 people. On board there are all necessary insurance certificates that comply with the requirements of the ILO  Maritime Labor Convention.

- The crew is satisfied with the working and living conditions on board. But since the ship is flying a flag of convenience, the crew members have questions about their future pension. In addition, all the crew members  expressed their negative attitude to the government's decision to increase the retirement age, - said Alexander Rusetsky, the  SUR BTO Inspector.

- We explained the seafarers, that they should apply  themselves to the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation at their place of residence and take with them  passport, SNILS (insurance individual account number)  and the contract of employment in order to make the necessary deductions. Moreover, after  signing the contract, but before starting a voyage, it is necessary to come to the Pension Fund and make voluntary insurance deductions. As for  preferential pensions, despite recent initiatives by the government, there are as yet no any sign of the forthcoming  review of  the rules for early retirement.
