More than 130 billion rubles were directed for pensions payment in Bashkortostan


UFA, 16 September 2016. /Bashinform News Agency, Galina Bakhshieva/. Since the beginning of the year more than 130 billion rubles have been directed for pensions payment in Bashkortostan. Pensions and social benefits payments in the region are funded on time and in full, the press-service of the Department of Pension Fund of the Republic of Bashkortostan stressed.

This year, all types of pensions paid by the Pension Fund of Russia, were indexed by 4 percent. Thus insurance pensions were indexed for non-working pensioners.

Recall that in January 2017 all pensioners, regardless of whether they work or not, will receive a lump sum compensation payment in the amount of 5 thousand rubles.

Pensioners permanently residing in the territory of Russia and receiving their pensions through the Pension Fund will receive a lump sum payment. It is not necessary to apply to the Pension Fund or to submit applications. 1.153 million pensioners of our republic will receive the payment together with their pensions for January 2017. More than 5.7 billion rubles will be needed for the payment implementation.
