Government and the Czech Savings Bank have agreed, through SCART benefits shall be voluntary

PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - Social card called SCART will be required as a pass, but choose benefits in material need and people will be able to otherwise, either can be transferred to your account, or delivers them slip Czech Post. Prime Minister Petr Necas (ODS) confirmed on Friday that the Czech Savings Bank agreed to change the contract.

In agreement about sKaret entered the new entity. In addition to the government, the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the Czech Savings Bank into the game adds Czech Post. Offers users of social cards to benefit in material need drawn through bills. At the same time there is a revision of the contract with the Ministry of the Czech Savings Bank and legislative changes so that payments SCART remained on a voluntary basis.

"We want to reassure the public, SCART are extensions of the method of drawing benefits, not the only option. I am a supporter of modern technology, but also the principle of voluntariness. SCART will be used for payments voluntarily, compulsory will only pass. Everyone will be able to decide which method wants to leave welfare payments, "he assured Nečas Friday press conference.

He added that the obligation to draw benefits through SCART remains where it is a reasonable suspicion that they will benefit in material need are abused, for example, to buy alcohol or to gamble.

Extending opportunities for holders sKaret are složenkové payment, you will ensure the Czech Post. "The system will be operational by the end of May next year. Rates will be the same as for old-age pensions," said the Premier.

Together with the Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Ludmila Müller stressed that until definite treatment adopted, will continue current method of paying benefits and beneficiaries will not lose their money. "I have a message that no one has been suspended benefits because he did not pick SCART, this did not happen, and I emphasize that this not happen," said the Premier.

Müller added that the future of the sKaret and changing legislative framework, the Authority will negotiate with the ombudsman and interest groups in order to avoid further complications and disagreements. "SCART to be friendly and safe means to increase client comfort. Want and improve its accessibility, for example, be supplied to people's homes, so that people do not have for it on the counter. Also, let people choose any method of payment of benefits, no will not pay for any service, "she assured the Minister.

A treaty with the Czech savings bank drop out many of the agreements at issue, for whose existence Prime Minister clearly blames "high official in the Ministry, which solves bodies active in criminal proceedings." Falls off as the obligation to maintain the 98 percent payment of benefits SCART and the system will not affect the payment of pensions. "I note that the Czech Savings Bank is providing these services to the state free of charge, our only gain are commissions from retailers, for which people will pay SCART," said Chief Executive Officer Paul Kysilka.

For holders SCART extends offer: free will be able to change the PIN code, select the Czech Savings Bank ATMs and over the counter free. "It will be a payment option friendliest in the country. SCART account as opposed to other accounts protected from being seized," mentioned Kysilka.

The downside is that anyone who picks up the SCART will be able to use složenkové payments until May, because it does not yet technical adjustment. Bills may yet benefit only those beneficiaries in material need who do not have SCART.

Social card still uses the 160,000 inhabitants of the Republic and stand them on benefits paid out more than a billion crowns.
