Media: The Ministry of Finance proposed to allow

We are talking about savings frozen since 2014.

The Russian Ministry of Finance has made a proposal to privatize the pension savings of Russian citizens. We are talking about funds that are currently frozen, starting in 2014.

As Vedomosti writes, referring to the presentation of the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance, which was previously presented by the heads of departments, it is proposed to give Russians who have pension savings investment rights.

So, they will be able to invest these funds according to their choice, taking into account certain criteria.

According to the head of the State Duma Committee on Financial Markets Anatoly  Aksakova, in the process of investing, the withdrawal of funds is not expected.

He explained that the Ministry of Finance wants to create a system in which Russians will be able to choose from several options: either leave their savings under the management of the fund, both the FIU and the NPF, or invest them independently, taking into account certain conditions.

Recall that now citizens of the Russian Federation can only transfer savings under the OPS system from one non-state fund to another, other operations with these funds are not available to them.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that the expert revealed a legal scheme for the purchase of seniority for retirement. She recalled that, according to the law, you can “buy” 50% of the experience – 7.5 years.
