From January 1, 2019 in Russia, the pension was indexed to non-working pensioners by 7.05%. She touched the pensions of 32 million Russians who are on deserved rest. But not all of them began to receive more.

 “Some people receive social benefits for retirement, ensuring their income is not lower than the subsistence minimum for a pensioner. If as a result of indexation, payments increased by less than 7.05% or did not increase at all, this does not mean that the pension has not been indexed – most likely, the established social payment simply does not allow to see the increase, ”the Pension Fund specified.
