Summary/Abstract: The author discusses the issue of equality and inequality in achieving rights from pension and disability insurance in Bosnia and Herzegovina through the analysis of the set conditions related to insurance and age limits regarding the rights to old-age pension in accordance with the general provisions on the pension and disability insurance, and special regulations on the retirement in both entities. A special problem of inequality occur due to differences in incomes of pensioners, beneficiaries of the entity’s pension found institutions and disability insurance, for the persons who were granted retirement before the war, with a single insurance found institution and the single economic space. This is an open problem that burdens the insurance institution in the entities. In the conclusions and recommendations, the author suggests modalities to resolve the issues of inequality by strengthening the role of state government levels.
