Some 4,000 criminal cases involving cheating on social insurance contributions were pending at the end of April this year, the Social Insurance Services said in a statement on Thursday.

Of these, 1,456 cases related to employers and 2,557 cases to self-employed persons.

The Social Insurance Services also announced that it is currently assessing a series of applications filed for benefits and pensions.

For instance, currently under review are applications for those persons whose employment was terminated, and their period of unemployment began on April 3, 2020.

On the sickness benefit, the applications now being assessed are those filed up to April 4, and for disability pension those applications filed in March and April this year.

Also being assessed are applications for a statutory pension for those persons who became potentially eligible in March 2020; for the social pension (old-age pension), the applications examined concern those persons becoming potentially eligible in February and March 2020.
