The topic of pension policy regulation began to sound before the government resigned. In particular, at a meeting of the State Duma, where the deputies approved the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, he said that he was preparing proposals for the retirement age.
Medvedev noted that the decision must be taken carefully, while emphasizing that the previous framework was established a long time ago, and life has changed. According to the Prime Minister, the existing pension framework was established in the 1930s, when life expectancy was 40 years.
The strategy presented by the Center for Strategic Development, headed by the ex-head of the Ministry of Finance Alexey Kudrin, provides for a gradual increase in the retirement age to 63 in women and 65 in men to 2034.
