By 2025 the minimum period for a retirement pension will be increased from 5 to 15 years. Since January 1, 2015 in the pension system of Russia for the first time the concept of "individual pension factor" (point) is introduced, which is estimated each year of a citizen’s employment.

The Member of the Board of the Pension Fund of Russia, the head of Bashkortostan Directorate Foat Khantimerov believes that the new formula will stimulate people to work legally receiving officially shown salary, and employers — to pay insurance contributions and reflect them in the financial statements on time and in full.

Since the beginning of this year the departments of the Pension Fund of Russia in the regions and cities of the country began receiving single reporting from payers, which will last till February 16.
