The bill on increasing the Far Eastern pensions will be considered by the State Duma.

The State Duma Committee on Labor, Social Policy and Veterans Affairs is preparing for consideration a bill initiated by the Legislative Assembly of the Primorsky Territory, which may amend the federal law "On labor pensions in the Russian Federation."

Due to the high tariffs for heat and electricity, significant expenses for transport and utilities, the rise in prices for services and food, it turned out that the standard of living of pensioners in the Far East is significantly lower than in other regions of Russia. Therefore, the draft law provides for an increase in the Far Eastern pensions by the corresponding regional coefficient. “The regional allowance applies to the Far East salary, but not to the pension. We are deeply convinced that this is unfair, ”said Galust Akhoyan, Chairman of the Legislative Assembly Committee on Budget Policy and Financial Resources of Primorsky Krai. "Now there is hope that after consideration in the State Duma and approval by the Russian government, the Far East will be able to receive an increased pension."

On the instructions of the Legislative Assembly Committee on Budgetary Policy and Financial Resources, the bill in the State Duma was represented by MP Igor Chemeris.

“We were heard,” he said. - The most important thing now is to keep those people who have not left the Far East. We need to save them. It's about motivation for those who live in the Far East. ”
