Pensioners have already been receiving allowances since December last year.
Elderly Russians were amazed at the meager allowances for pensions, which began to be paid at the end of December 2021.
Recall that from January 1, 2022, the indexation of pensions began in Russia, which was supposed to be 5.9%. At the same time, many Russians hoped for a substantial increase.
As a result, according to PRIMPRESS, some pensioners in the regions received from 590 to 750 rubles. The publication cites the example of pensioner Elena, who reported that she was paid 600 rubles, and now her pension was only 9800 rubles.
Another pensioner Olga said that with an experience of 40 years, her pension from 2022, together with an allowance, amounted to only 13,500 rubles. For others, the situation is not much better.
In general, pensioners expected an increase of at least 1,000 rubles, given that the prices of some products have risen by almost 50%.
But pensioners of Moscow can be calm. According to RIA Novosti, the minimum pension of unemployed pensioners in the capital has reached 21,193 rubles.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin signed a decree on indexation – the city’s pension supplement and social benefits for residents increased by 4.8%.
According to recent estimates, 2.1 million Muscovites will pay the surcharge. For reference: the last time the pension in the capital was raised significantly a year ago, also in January. Then it grew to 20,222 rubles.
Since January 2022, insurance pensions for non-working 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 insurance pension reached an average of 16,789 rubles.
Recall that Vladimir Putin at the last press conference said that the indexation of pensions should be equal to the inflation rate. Allegedly, the government is doing everything for this, the president noted in his speech.
As Topnews wrote earlier, the Network compared the pensions of Russians with the payments of celebrities who perform at New Year’s corporate parties.
To earn from 80 to 400 thousand rubles, a pensioner must save it for about 100 years and not spend it on anything.
