The authorities of the Sakhalin region presented an updated social map for residents of the region. Senior citizens will be able to pay for their travel and receive discounts in stores and pharmacies.

According to the press service of the regional government, a special card has already been awarded to the first nine residents of the region: silver volunteers, honored teachers of Russia and labor veterans. For pensioners, this card replaces three cards at once - a bank, a discount and a ticket.

Discounts in stores and pharmacies on the Sakhalin card reach 10%. Travel by public transport for residents over 70 years old is free with this card, and from 55 years you can use it for free to visit cultural and sports institutions.

Now the card is connected to the Mir payment system and it can be replenished, like any banking one. Issue and maintenance are free of charge; the bank will transfer all the data to the social protection authorities to transfer social payments. Banks may also offer their own special offers for cardholders. 160 thousand residents of the region have the right to receive such a card.
