Under the new rules to be eligible to receive the retirement pension, you must accumulate a minimum of 30 points. Changes will come into force gradually. In 2015, for the purpose of pension will be enough 6.6 points.

Points are awarded for each year of work, and also socially important periods of human life. For example, military service (conscript) or leave to care for a child.

The value of the pension point will annually recalculated. In 2015, it is 64,1 R. Minimum basic retirement pension in 2015 will amount to 3 R. 935

Now the minimum length of service for receiving pension will be increased from 5 to 15 years. But for those retiring in 2015, it was enough to work for 6 years. In future, the period of employment will increase annually until it reaches the planned target in 15 years.

Accrued pension in 2015 will be split into insurance and cumulative parts. The accumulative part of pension in 2014 in 2015 in succession to form will not, because she's frozen by the government. While the accumulation of previously made will continue.

Pension increase in 2015

In 2015, the pension will be indexed twice – in February and April. February indexation implies an increase in pensions by the inflation rate. In the fall of 2014, it was assumed that the indexation of pensions in 2015 will be 7.5%, but by year end it became apparent that in fact the annual inflation rate will be significantly higher.

It is assumed that the indexation of pensions will be further sent more than 110 billion rubles In the result, the average size of Russian pensions is expected to grow from 11.5 to about 13 thousand.

The April pension increase should occur if the income of the RPF for the previous year will be higher inflation. Also it will depend on how to change the subsistence level. If the first index in February, pensions will not meet the minimum, they will increase regardless of the income of the Fund.

The social pension in 2015 will be indexed in April. It is expected that it will grow by 12.3 per cent to $ 8 496 R.
