(.pdf, 365.08 KB )

Moldova inherited the soviet system of privileges and compensations like many other former Soviet republics. In 1990s, about one third of the population received privileges. Over 12 years – from 1997 to 2009 – Moldova passed a complex way of re-organizing privileges and compensations and gradually replaced them with targeted cash benefits to low-income families. Currently, the social assistance eligibility is based on the applicant’s income level and the number of scores for property status.
