Кыргызская Республика

Unit of measurement



The indicator reflects the proportion of persons effectively covered by a social protection system, including social protection floors. The number of social benefits recipients is the number of persons at the end (beginning) of the reporting year that have been assigned monthly amount under law of the Kyrgyz Republic on «State benefits in the Kyrgyz Republic». Effective coverage of social protection is measured by the number of personal accounts of recipients registered with the social protection agencies.


Beneficiary of pension payments (benefits) is individual receiving pension (benefit). Pension is an insurance payment made in cases of insured events to entitled persons in an amount and under conditions established by the State social protection legislation. There are several pension types: a) old-age pensions; b) disability benefits; b) loss of breadwinner pension. Number of pension recipients is the number of persons at the end (beginning) of the reporting year entitled to a monthly payment under pension legislation. The total number of pension recipients is separately calculated by the number of pensioners’ personal accounts registered with the Social Fund, other ministries and departments and the Pension Fund. State social benefits are financial support guaranteed by the Constitution of the Kyrgyz Republic to low-income families and disabled persons that have no pension entitlements. The following State benefits have been established: 1) monthly benefits to citizens (families) with three or more children between the ages of 3 and 16 “uy-bulogo komok” 2) monthly benefits to persons not entitled to pension “social benefits”. Social standards system includes social standards set in the following areas of social protection: Healthcare; social protection; education; employment; environmental security; legal order guarantees, citizen security and free legal assistance; culture; physical culture. Proportion of population covered by social protection floors/systems indicates how well population living conditions are protected.

Rationale and interpretation

The social protection floor in the Kyrgyz Republic is a nationally defined set of basic social security guarantees which should ensure that those in need have access to basic healthcare and income, which together ensure guaranteed access to country-specific basic goods and services.

Method of computation

Indicator is defined as the ratio of persons receiving pensions and benefits to the total resident population and is calculated by: y=n/N*100, where n = total number of pensions and benefits recipients, N = total population.

Comments and limitations

There is a risk of double counting of beneficiaries of social protection systems and even of persons covered by them due to «supplementary» pension schemes. Even when main sources of double counting are excluded, double counting may occur if, for example, recipients move between different pension schemes over their lifetime and benefit from several schemes.
