The RF Government Commission on Legislative Activities did not support Senator Vasily Ikonnikov’s bill to reduce the retirement age for an old-age insurance pension to 61 years for men and 56 years for women.
Recall that Ikonnikov proposed changes to the pension legislation, providing for a reduction in the retirement age for an old-age insurance pension for men and women from 65 and 60 years to 61 and 56 years, respectively. It was also proposed to reduce the length of service for early retirement: from 42 and 37 years to 38 and 33 years, respectively, a decrease in the age requirement for receiving a social old-age pension: from 70 and 65 to 66 and 61 years, respectively.
As reported by RIA Novosti, the commission’s conclusion says that the need for amendments “is not confirmed by statistical data” and an analysis of existing legal norms. In addition, according to the financial and economic justification of the bill, its implementation will require additional costs from the federal budget and the budget of the Pension Fund, the commission writes. At the same time, the law does not contain norms defining the sources and procedure for financing, which does not meet the requirements of the Budget Code.
Therefore, the government does not support the law.
