In order to travel by train for free, it is necessary to present a confirmation of pension receipt to the railway company, but not the amount of pension received.
Such a confirmation is always made by the Social Insurance Company while waiting, so it is not necessary to request a confirmation by letter via post, as it is a lengthy form.
The pensioner can get the fastest confirmation of pension receipt by visiting any branch of the Social Insurance Company or by contacting the Information and Advice Center of the Social Insurance Company headquarters. Confirmation of pension receipt can also be requested by phone on the toll-free line of the Social Insurance Agency 0800 123 123; electronically via the form for questions on the website of the Social Insurance Company www.socpoist.sk, or via the electronic address firstname.lastname@example.org In this case, the confirmation will be sent to the pensioner’s home address within three days.
