Pensions are raised today
Beginning from April 1, 2010, all kinds of pensions are raised by 6,3%. All pensioners in Russia will receive higher pensions in April but the sum of the rise for every pensioner will be individual. As the Russian Pension Fund’s Bashkir division reports, the average amount of a labor pension will increase by 440 rubles, making 7313 rubles, and the average amount of an oldage pension will increase by 445 rubles, making 7617 rubles.
The amounts of the monthly allowances to the federal pensioners, having benefits, will be also increased. The additional means for payment of the pensions and the monthly allowances will be backstopped by the corresponding funding.
