The Moscow government plans to raise the minimum pension pensioners. As reported “Interfax”, this was stated by the mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin.
“We said that if the economy will grow, incomes will allow, we will continue to raise the minimum level. Despite the talk about the fact that the economy is every year worse and worse, in fact it is not — rising incomes, increasing income tax, wage income tax profit is a sign that the economy is growing,” — said Sobyanin.
He promised that on the basis of these assumptions, the Moscow government “must in the near future” will consider increasing minimum pension. “How again count and literally, probably, next week the government will consider and take a decision”, — said the mayor.
From 1 January 2018, the minimum pension in Moscow increased by 3 thousand rubles — from 14.5 thousand to 17,5 thousand roubles. So much needs to given city bonuses non-working pensioners living in the capital for 10 years or more. In December 2018 Sobyanin signed a decree, which stated that increased to 17.5 thousand rubles, the minimum size of pensions to the pensioners will continue in 2019.
Under Russian law, the pension may not be less than the subsistence minimum of the pensioner, established in the region. In that case, if the income less than the subsistence minimum of a pensioner, the citizen is entitled to social benefits.
Federal surcharge shall be retired, if his total income does not reach the subsistence minimum of the pensioner established in the region, and thus does not exceed the subsistence minimum of a pensioner in Russia as a whole. Regional surcharge set, if the subsistence minimum of a pensioner in the region above the Federal, while its total income is below the subsistence minimum of a pensioner in the region.
