Professor of the Department of Finance and Prices of the PRUE G.V. Plekhanova Yulia Finogenova in an interview with the agency “Prime»Spoke about the upcoming changes in the rules for the payment of pensions.
As the financier explained, in order to receive social benefits up to the minimum subsistence level, non-working pensioners will no longer need to apply for recalculation, since from 2022 it will be done automatically.
In addition, unemployed citizens will receive pensions and social benefits automatically two years before retirement if they cannot officially get a job, as well as people with disabilities upon reaching retirement age.
Additional payments to the insurance pension for old age or for disability will be automatically accrued if the work experience is 30 years or more. Also, from 2022, citizens living for at least 30 years in rural areas will additionally receive a supplement in the form of 25 percent of a fixed payment, Finogenova said. At the same time, it is not necessary to live in a rural area, as it was before, it is important only at the time of calculating the pension, in case of moving, the surcharge will remain. Pensioners for whom the payment of the allowance was terminated due to the relocation will be restored in 2022.
In addition, from 2022, on the State Services portal, men over 45 and women over 40 will be able to find out about the state of the retirement account, the estimated amount of pension and accumulated points. Finogenova also admitted that the State Duma will adopt amendments to the pensions of citizens living in the Far North, which provide for the use of the total regional coefficient, which increases the size of the fixed payment within the insurance pension.
Earlier, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that more than 12 million people who receive their pensions through the post office and other delivery organizations, from September 3, began to receive lump sum payments of 10 thousand rubles.
The support of pensioners is provided by the decree of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin of 24 August. On August 22, the head of state came up with the initiative at the congress of the United Russia party, pointing out the acceleration of inflation. Payments will also be provided to the military.
