Retirees have already been receiving allowances since December of last year.
Elderly Russians were amazed at the meager pension benefits, which began to be paid at the end of December 2021.
Recall that from January 1, 2022, the indexation of pensions started in Russia, which was supposed to be 5.9%. At the same time, many Russians hoped for a significant increase.
As a result, according to PRIMPRESS, some retirees in the regions received from 590 to 750 rubles. The publication cites the example of a pensioner Elena, who said that she received an additional 600 rubles, and now her pension was only 9,800 rubles.
Another retiree, Olga, said that with 40 years of experience, her 2022 pension, with the allowance, was only 13,500 rubles. For others, the situation is hardly better.
In general, retirees expected an increase of at least 1000 rubles, given that the prices of some products rose by almost 50%.
But they may be calm retirees from Moscow. According to RIA Novosti, the minimum pension for inactive retirees in the capital reached 21,193 rubles.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin signed a decree on indexation – the municipal surcharge for pensioners and social benefits for residents increased by 4.8%.
< p> According to recent estimates, 2.1 million Muscovites will pay the surcharge. As a reminder: the last time the pension in the capital was significantly increased a year ago, also in January. Then it rose to 20,222 rubles.
As of January 2022, insurance pensions for inactive Russians have been indexed by 5.9%. Their average size is 18,521 rubles. In 2023 and 2024, the indexation will be 5.6% and 5.5%.
Presumably, the amount of pensions will reach 19,476 rubles and 20,469 rubles.
In January 2020, the average pension insurance reached 16,789 rubles.
Recall that Vladimir Putin said at a press conference that the Pension indexation should equal the rate of inflation. Apparently the government is doing everything for this, the president said in his speech.
As Topnews wrote earlier, the internet has compared Russians' pensions with celebrity payments that occur at company New Year's parties.
< p> To earn money from 80 to 400 thousand rubles, a retiree has to save it for about 100 years and not spend it on anything.
