The pension indexation parameters proposed by the Ministry of Labor in the draft budget of the Pension Fund (PFR) doom millions of older citizens to total poverty. According to the correspondent IA REGNUM June 23, this was stated by the leader of the SRZP State Duma deputy Sergei Mironov.
“The government’s plans reinforce the situation when our pensioners receive less and replenish the army of the poor. Moreover, the underestimated indexation is completely inconsistent with the promises made during the anti-people pension reform, ”said Mironov.
The Ministry of Labor has developed a draft PFR budget for 2023-2025. According to the document, pensions should grow by 6.8% in 2023, and by 6.1% in 2024.
At the same time, according to the macroeconomic forecast of the Ministry of Economy, inflation in 2022 will be 17.5%. These are only official figures, real inflation could be even higher, Mironov said.
