The real growth of pensions to pensioners until 2024 is determined by Federal law, not Executive orders, so the stop is not provided. Therefore, reports of some mass media commented on the Ministry of labour, reports RIA Novosti.

Possible freezing of pensions connected with the decree “On the national development of the Russian Federation for the period till 2030”, signed by President Vladimir Putin.

The document supersedes a similar decree from may 2018 and contains a number of significant differences. For example, it no longer seeks to enter the five largest economies in the world, as well as reduced demand for life expectancy.

Experts ‘ attention was attracted by a paragraph which stated on the indexation of pensions by an amount not less than inflation. In the may decree, this requirement was formulated as indexing to a higher level of inflation, which means real growth.

However, the labour Ministry noted that the change in the size of pensions is guaranteed by the law of October 3, 2018. It States that from 1 January 2021, the pension index by 6.3 percent from January 1, 2022 — 5.9 percent, from January 1, 2023 and August to 5.6 percent, from January 1, 2024 — at 5.5%. After this period, the indexation of insurance pensions will be linked to the income of the Pension Fund of Russia, while the Department believes that there will be enough.

Current Federal law on the indexation of pensions adopted within the framework of the execution of the may decree 2018. Until October 30, 2020, the government should formulate proposals for the implementation of the new decree and to adjust the work plan for the period up to 2024 and the planned period up to 2030. What kind of plans going to adjust the Cabinet, it was reported.
