The document provides for the creation of an appropriate fund by transforming the Pension Fund of Russia (PFR) and joining it with the Social Insurance Fund of the Russian Federation (FSS).

Earlier, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said that a single mandatory pension and social insurance fund will appear next year.

Later, the Russian government submitted to the State Duma a bill to merge the Pension Fund and the Social Insurance Fund.
