The Ministry of Labor has developed new rules for the payment of pensions. The department plans to change the procedure for the one-time receipt of savings.
As it became known to “MK”, the Ministry of Labor has prepared a package of amendments to several orders concerning the rules for calculating and calculating labor pensions. The innovations will not affect all future and current pensioners, but only those who have the right to receive their pension savings in full at once. These are two groups of citizens. The first is socially unprotected people who receive a pension for the loss of a breadwinner and disability. The second group of people who can count on a one-time payment of what they have accumulated over the years of work are citizens whose work experience is too short to be awarded an old-age insurance pension, and there is also a shortfall in pension points. This includes women over 55 and men over 60.
The new rules will change the format of interaction of such citizens with officials of the FIU. It will be possible to apply for a one-time payment of pension savings electronically through the public services portal. The same service will be available to employees who have transferred their pension money to a non-state fund. Another innovation concerns the timing of receiving a lump sum. It will be possible to apply for it again only after five years. Pension fund officials will have five days to consider a citizen’s application under the new rules. They also report their decision – to pay or not – through the portal of public services. If the pensioner does not have an account in the electronic database, the “letter of happiness” will be sent to him by regular or e-mail.
According to the plans of the department, the new order will start working on July 1 next year.
