In the Primorsky Territory, a new value of the subsistence minimum for pensioners for the next year has been established. It will be 12,5% ​​more than in 2020.

According to the press service of the regional government, the law was approved at a meeting of the Legislative Assembly of the region. Now the subsistence minimum for pensioners is 10 rubles, and next year it will rise to 775 rubles.

According to Elena Bronnikova, deputy chairman of the Primorsky Territory government, this amount is used to calculate additional payments to non-working pensioners whose benefits are less than the subsistence level. Now about 72,5 thousand people receive such an additional payment. 

On average, one recipient in 2021 will receive an allowance of 3,7 thousand rubles. For these purposes 3,3 billion rubles will be required, 430 million of which will be allocated from the regional budget.

In addition to supplements to pensions up to the subsistence level, there is a one-time payment in the region of six thousand rubles. It can be received by non-working, low-income pensioners. This year, almost 73 thousand people took advantage of this support measure. 433 million rubles were allocated from the regional budget for these purposes.
