What will they spend in money?
In the debate on the draft amendment, MEPs welcomed solutions that relieved the courts and procedures, and agreed to transfer the forgotten 2022 accounts to Kad and to spend on pensions, the functioning of the demographic fund. They were unequal about eliminating cost containment, but agreed that this should not be determined by law, as the Constitutional Court has pointed out.
When transferring the abandoned property of 2022 "the benefits of these securities will be distributed indirectly among all citizens"he thought Jože Lenart of LMŠ. "This would be achieved by state or by state. especially pensioners", she said Mateja Udovč of SMC. He looked like this Franc Kramar of SAB, who said that the forgotten accounts should be "to be used for demographic fund purposes".
"When it is transformed into a demographic reserve fund in the future, it is important that it has as many different sources of funding as possible. As a realist, we know that the source of funding for abandoned titles will be a more marginal character, and certainly not to the extent that it could be neglected"he added. Robert Polnar of DeSUS.
The owners still have time to get their property

In NSi, the proposal received support, reducing the administrative burden and following the decisions of the Constitutional Court, summarized Jožef Horvat of NSi. They also welcomed the relief in SDS and Levica, but did not like the solution to contain the costs, while the Constitutional Court fell at brokerages that opposed the restrictions.

Luka Moon of Levice, however, he considered that the abolition of the restriction could mean that brokerage firms could be expropriated by small shareholders.
Jani Ivanushi it seems from the SNS that the costs of maintaining accounts in KDD members, ie banks and brokerage firms, are limited. "This should be done by KDD, which has the power to define a ceiling of costs through the implementation of rules"he emphasized.
