Armenia/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.2 Special artists funds

The Literary Fund of the Writers' Union of Armenia supports book publication and the organisation of literary activities.

Legal guarantees on pension coverage for artists in the cultural sphere and conditions for pension entitlement, types of state pensions, procedures for awarding pensions and payment methods are determined by the Law on State Pensions (2002). A right to a partial pension is given to some categories of cultural workers upon reaching the age of 55 and having at least 12 years of professional insurance and to some categories of actors of theatrical and theatrical-concert organisations upon reaching the age of 50 and having at least 12-years professional insurance. A list of posts, conferring a right to some category of workers in the education and cultural spheres, to receive partial pensions for long-term service and of types of working activities has also been approved.
