Discounted loans for state and public pensioners
With the Save Italy Decree (Legislative Decree 201/11), Government Agency was abolished and all services provided to employees and pensioners of the public administration became the responsibility of Social Institute. To manage ex Government Agency practices, the institute has set up a special office, which is called Public Employees Management.
The management of public employees deals both with the management of the pension fund of the former Government Agency members and with providing the services and services dedicated to them. Among these are pensioner Government Agency loans, loans at subsidized interest rates for pensioners in the public administration. But let’s see in detail what the credit lines that Government Agency pensioners can access.
Small loans which allows obtaining loans
Among the pensioners Government Agency loans we find the small loan, which allows obtaining loans on the assignment of the fifth repayable in 1, 2, 3, or 4 years. Accessible only to members of the Unified Management of Credit and Social Benefits, this loan provides for the disbursement of amounts defined on the basis of the pension received by the applicant and the duration of the amortization plan.
In fact, for each year of repayment, it is possible to obtain a sum equal to two average net monthly payments received by the applicant, without prejudice to the limit of the transferable portion. In the event that the member has other loans in progress on assignment of the fifth of the pension, the maximum amount payable is reduced to an average net monthly salary for each year of amortization.
A fixed interest rate of 4.25%, a rate of administration fees of 0.50% and a premium for the Social Institute Risk Fund, established on the basis of the age of the applicant, apply to the gross amount of the loan. and the repayment duration. Since they fall into the category of personal loans to obtain small Government Agency loans, there is no need to produce reasons or present medical certificates.
In addition to small loans, former Government Agency pensioners can also access multi-year pensioner Government Agency loans, loans granted by the Social Institute credit fund for actual and documented personal or family needs, falling within the cases provided for by the Government Agency loan regulation. To access multi-year loans, it is necessary to have been registered for at least four years in the Unified Management of credit and social benefits.
The duration of the loan (which can be five or ten years) and the maximum amount of the loan are defined on the basis of the reason for which the loan is requested. The loan is repaid by assigning a fifth of the salary and the repayment begins the second month following the disbursement of the sum.
The interest rate applied is 3.50%. And as for small loans, a rate of administration fees of 0.5% and a premium for the payment of the Risk Fund apply to the gross amount of long-term loans.
