Pension payments are set to rise to a minimum of 900 dinars after Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah approved a resolution in this regard Tuesday.

Dbeibah said that "caring for retirees is a moral and patriotic duty." He also indicated that the Cabinet approved the 1st of October to be a national day for retirees.

The PM issued the decision following a meeting with a group of retirees representing ministries and service institutions.

Also present at the meeting were the Retirees Syndicate, the Governor of the Central Bank of Libya, and the Minister of Social Affairs.
