In a comment to the Prime agency, she recalled that not all citizens, upon reaching retirement age, have enough seniority and pension points.

Most often, such a problem is faced by people who have worked “in full” for many years.

According to the interlocutor of the publication, there is a transitional period in the country until 2024 - for each year of retirement, a certain amount of required work experience and accumulated points are established.

From 2024, citizens will need to have at least 15 years of experience and 30 points.

At the same time, the legislation allows you to “buy” half of this period or 7.5 years.

“To do this, you can contact the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation, conclude an agreement and deposit the required amount, at least 36,669.60 rubles in 2022, and for the self-employed, the fixed amount is 34,445 rubles.

This amount will make it possible to add 1 year of experience and 1.076 points,” Ivanova-Shvets explained.

PhD in Economics Yevgeny Ivanov earlier recalled the importance of formal employment.

He stressed that taxes transferred to the state become a guarantee of the financial security of citizens in many areas of life.
