Expected increase in pensions in 2013
Each new year brings pensioners hope thoughwould be on a small, but, nevertheless, increase in pensions. The state is trying to justify expectations little by little and every year increases the size of various social payments and compensations. 2013 was no exception.
The Pension Fund of Russia for 2013 has planneda general increase in pensions in a twofold amount, average pension payments will be carried out at a rate of 12 thousand rubles. Now we need to figure out how the amount of payments will change over the current year.
The Government of the Russian Federation provides for an increase in pension payments in three stages: from the beginning of February - the first, from the beginning of April - the second, from the beginning of October - the expected third increase.
For the first time this year, as plannedstate employees, pension payments increased in February. The pension was indexed by 6.6%. With regard to cash, the average labor pension increased by almost 640 rubles, pension disability payments increased by an average of 400 rubles, pension payments in case of loss of a single breadwinner in the family also increased somewhat, by about 390 rubles.
Since early April, there has also been an indexation of pensionsby 3.3%. Again, pension payments have increased: the working pension is about 340 rubles, on disability - a little more than 200 rubles, with the loss of the breadwinner - also more than 200 rubles.
The increase of the pension also affected those citizens,who receive a pension on the funded system, and transferred their contributions to non-state pension funds. To receive the increase, you just need to write a special application to the Pension Fund, you can receive pension allowances from July 1, 2013.
The military also cares about the question of whenincrease of pension. As early as 2011-12, the government envisaged an increase in payments for this category of the population. Despite the introduction of a not very pleasant coefficient of 0.54 units to calculate the size of payments, the officials, nevertheless, somewhat changed the rules for calculating pensions for the military and began to take into account the level of inflation. By the way, this is the first change in the rules for calculating military pensions since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
But, nevertheless, the order of calculation of pension paymentsthe military will remain unchanged. As before, such pensions will be in the amount of 50% of seniority, and the extra charge for each year of service is 3%. It is interesting that the total amount of payments should not exceed the line indicated by the state at a rate of 85%.
Increase of the pension by the military can be calculated independing on the growth of inflation - it should be stable by 2% higher than the figure of the forecasted level of inflation in the country for the current year. According to the estimates of officials, on average, the increase in military pensions should be 20%, the average payment will be 22 thousand rubles.
For people with disabilities, regardless ofcategory, the pension will also increase somewhat (2013). The increase will occur in parallel with the increase in the normal labor pension. According to the calculations of officials, the average social pension payments of this category of population for the current year will be about 7200 rubles.
