Transfer of pensions to MIR cards postponed until the end of the year
The transfer of pensioners and recipients of social benefits to the MIR card is postponed until the end of the year. At first, it was planned to complete the transition by July 1, but the dates were postponed due to the pandemic.
As told on the air of the TV channel "Russia 1" Alla Bakina, head of the department of the national payment system of the Central Bank, most of the pensioners are already using the MIR card, but there are also those who have not yet received it. They will be able to do this before the end of the year.
Starting from the new year, benefits from the Pension Fund will be credited only to cards of the MIR payment system. We are talking about pensions, maternity benefits, monthly child benefits. To apply for such a card, you must contact the MFC or the Pension Fund.
To change the method of delivery of the pension, you must submit an application to the Pension Fund. Experts will review it in three days. At the same time, an alternative method of pension delivery will also work. For those who do not want to get a card, their pension will be transferred to a savings account, and they will also be able to receive money by mail.
