The Ministry of Labor said that the pensions of the non-working pensioners will not be frozen, but the size of the indexation of payments is determined by federal law, and not by the decrees. This will ensure the growth of the real pensions until 2024.

After this time, payments will increase depending on the growth of budget revenues of the Pension Fund of Russia, RIA Novosti reports with the reference to the press service of the department.

President Vladimir Putin signed a decree "On the national development goals of the Russian Federation for the period up to 2030". Information appeared in the media about a possible freeze of pensions.

The Ministry of Labor explained that the size of the indexation of pensions for non-working pensioners is determined not by decrees, but by Federal Law No. 350-FZ. It says that in the period from 2021 to 2024, the indexation will exceed the level of expected inflation, including from January 1, 2021, pensions will be indexed by 6.3%, from January 1, 2022 - by 5.9%, from January 1 2023 - by 5.4%, from January 1, 2024 - by 5.5%. Thus, the Ministry of Labor said, an increase in real pensions will be ensured.

According to representatives of the ministry, after 2024, insurance pensions will grow based on the increase in budget revenues of the Pension Fund of Russia. According to calculations, insurance pensions will be indexed above inflation.

Let us recall that in the presidential decrees in May three years ago, nine priority goals were fixed, which must be implemented until 2024, and which should improve the well-being of people. Among them were pension payments. The annual indexation of pensions should not be lower than the inflation rate, according to the presidential decree.

Earlier the government proposed not to index the salaries of civil servants in 2021. The head of the Center for Economic Strategies Dmitry Zavorotny considered this decision a political move made in order to demonstrate to ordinary citizens that officials are also incurring losses.
