So, in an interview with the publication "Russian newspaper" Minister of Labor and Social Policy Maxim Topilin confirmed information about the refusal to assign an insurance pension to a number of Russians. According to the federal minister, instead of an insurance pension, a so-called social pension was granted to citizens. Its size, as we know, is significantly lower than the insurance.
Topilin noted that such a decision was reached by the FIU, based on the fact that the citizens who applied to the fund did not have enough accumulated work experience and so-called “pension” points.
Recall that earlier the FIU stated that there are no pensioners in Russia whose monthly income would be below the subsistence minimum.
In the case of a small pension, there is a surcharge from the fund up to the size of the subsistence minimum in the region of residence.
If the FIU began to deny the working Russians who have reached retirement age, in the calculation of the insurance pension, then, in fact, this is the first step to raising the retirement age.
