“We predict the size of the old-age insurance pension for non-working pensioners in 2020 of 16.4 thousand rubles, with an increase to 18.3 thousand rubles in 2022,” TASS quoted him as saying.

He made a corresponding statement during his speech at a meeting of the State Duma Committee on Social Policy and Veterans' Affairs.

Earlier, the Ministry of Labor talked about indexation of pensions from January 1.

In September, it was reported that the Ministry of Finance submitted for public discussion a draft of a new system of pension savings. According to the agency, the innovations are due to the low level of personal participation of Russians in the formation of retirement income. The State Duma noted that the initiative of the ministry is timely and useful, but people need to demonstrate the effectiveness of the system.
