Yaroslav Nilov, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Labor and Social Policy, commented on the results of the study, according to which Russians expect a pension in the amount of 30 to 45 thousand rubles. The parliamentarian said that he did not consider these expectations too high.
Nilov said that many in the regions receive pensions in the amount of the living wage – at the level of 8-9 thousand rubles.
The deputy added that in order to increase pensions for Russians, the authorities must take two measures. The first is to introduce a flat scale for the payment of insurance premiums. Now, according to him, it is 22 percent to a million rubles, and after that – already 10 percent. According to the deputy, a flat rate of 22 percent should be made.
“Secondly, the money confiscated from corrupt officials should not be diluted in the general budget, but used to ensure the growth of pensions,” Nilov said in an interview with NSN .
Earlier, experts told MK which categories of working pensioners may qualify for the indexation of pensions in the future.
