Associate Professor of the Faculty of Economics of RUDN University Larisa Sorokina told in which case Russians can be given a funded pension at once.
In a conversation with the Prime agency on October 3, the expert recalled that the old-age labor pension consists of two parts: insurance and funded. So, an insurance pension can be received only upon reaching retirement age, and a funded pension – after the age of 55 (women) or 60 years (men).
In some cases, it can be issued at a time, Sorokina noted.
“In order to receive a lump sum payment on pension savings, you need to apply to the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation or to the NPF, depending on where the funds are located. The application can also be submitted through a personal account on the PFR website. To do this, use the State Services account, find the “Pensions” block and select the second service “Apply for a lump sum payment of pension savings,” the expert said.
According to Sorokina, the employer can apply to the FIU for the payment of a funded pension to insured employees who have given written consent to this.
Sorokina drew attention to the fact that the key factor in the formation of a funded pension is the official salary of an employee, on the basis of which his superiors accrued funds.
On September 28, the press service of the Ministry of Labor of Russia said that from January 1, old-age insurance pensions for non-working pensioners will be indexed by 4.8%. Their amount will increase to 21,864 rubles.
September 2, Associate Professor of the Department of Statistics of the PRUE. G.V. Plekhanova Olga Lebedinskaya spoke about the main ways to confirm the length of service when applying for a pension. She explained that the main document confirming the length of service is the work book. However, in the absence of it or incorrect entries, certificates from the employer or from the archival institution can become a substitute.
