They want to calculate a living wage for pensioners in a new way
A new law on changing the calculation of the cost of living for pensioners was submitted to the State Duma for consideration. Such measures, according to lawmakers, will be able to remove non-working pensioners from the category of poor people.
According to the press service of the State Duma, the amendment was initiated by the Kursk Regional Duma after numerous appeals from citizens. Now the regional cost of living is calculated on the basis of the amounts for the first and second quarter of the previous year on average for Russia.
These values depend on the size of the consumer basket with a minimum set of products, goods and services. In this case, the federal pension supplement is established only if the total amount of the pension becomes less than the subsistence level. For pensioners in 2020, this value is 9,311 thousand rubles.
Now, it is planned to establish the cost of living for pensioners for the next year from the size of the average annual cost of living per capita. Such changes will not require additional funding from the federal budget in 2020. Next year, additional funding of two billion rubles will be required for each region.
