In accordance with the order of the Ministry of labor, effective may 26, the social payments to the Russian pensioners recalculate and raise pensions above the subsistence level. About it reports “Russian newspaper”.
So, under the new rules, the amount of supplements to the pension are set before indexing. Now first there will be established a social Supplement equal to the minimum wage, and then the pension itself. Through this approach the income of pensioners after each index will be above the subsistence level, not equal to him.
Prior to the entry of an order in force the pensions of unemployed Russians after each indexing increasing, but the amount of co-payments decreased. In this regard, the increase in pensions was formal, the newspaper notes. Entering into force on 26 may, the document is a continuation of an already adopted law that regulates the rules of indexation of pensions below the subsistence minimum.
In March, the state Duma approved amendments to the law “On state social assistance”, which involves the growth of pension payments for pensioners. The document envisages the introduction of special social benefits, which will be aimed to eliminate the difference between current pension and subsistence minimum for the region. “The bill is aimed at improving the material security of unemployed pensioners”, — said the Deputy head of Ministry Andrey Pudov.
