Zhanna Golodova, a professor at the RUDN Institute of World Economy and Business, Doctor of Economics, said that for all non-working pensioners who until 1992 worked in state farms, collective farms, agricultural artels, peasant farms and machine-tractor stations, a bonus is due.
It will also be provided for those who left the countryside. The expert shared this information with the Prime agency.
Until now, only citizens living in rural areas could apply for this premium.
Earlier, lawyer Nikita Kuznetsov said that in April and October 2022, pensioners will receive an indexation of social pensions, as well as an increase in pensions for the military.
According to him, two important increases will be from April 1 and October 1. The first provides for the indexation of social and state pensions by 7.7%. The second involves the indexation of military pensions by 4%.
As noted by Kuznetsov, indexation of some categories of pensioners occurs in certain months. For example, for miners and pilots, the amount of charges changes every three months.
