All pensions will be raised by 6,3% beginning from April 1, 2010, in accordance with the federal law “Labor pensions in Russian Federation”. The corresponding decree is approved by the Russian Government. The recipients of two pensions will receive two increased pensions.

As the Russian Pension Fund Bashkir office reports, in April every pensioner will receive the enlarged pension but the sums will be different for different categories of pensioners.

The average amount of labor pension will grow up by 440 rubles, thus making 7313 rubles. The average amount of an oldage pension will grow up by 455 rubles, thus making 7617 rubles.
