Summary/Abstract: A reform of social investment and social insurance system [especially financing of educational and health care services) necessarily requires a reform of the pension system so that this system should be fully merit-based, closed and with a single basic pension payment. This will make it possible to create a feedback among economic effects of the sectors that contribute to acquisition, retention and employment of the human capital [especially by providing educational and healthcare services) and sources of their funding. The fully merit-based pension system need not collide with meeting the principles of solidarity and simultaneously, it creates a highly motivating environment for all stakeholders [providers and users of services related to acquisition, retention and employment of the human capital).
