Experts have calculated the effect of pension reform
The effect of raising the retirement age in Russia came a year earlier than experts expected. According to the National Rating Agency, over the past nine months, the federal budget has saved 21,5 billion rubles.
As reported "News", since the launch of the reform, the number of recipients of old-age insurance pension has decreased by 403,1 thousand people or 1,1%. Previously, it was believed that the effect of the reform over this period would be no more than nine billion rubles.
The result exceeded expectations. Based on this, in 2020, experts forecast savings of 50 billion rubles. The released funds, according to experts, can be used to index pensions for those who have already gone on a well-deserved rest.
The document on increasing the retirement age was signed over a year ago. According to it, men will retire at the age of 65, and women at 60. The transition to these values should be gradual until 2028.
