Most Russians would like to receive a pension of 30-45 thousand rubles. Moreover, an amount of at least 45 thousand rubles - corresponding to the average salary - would like to receive 46.6% of citizens. 30 thousand rubles would be enough for 29.1% of Russians.

This data follows from a survey conducted by the online financial platform Webbankir. The research results are published by RIA Novosti.

Analysts found that 22.1% of citizens want to see a monthly pension payment in excess of 45 thousand rubles for a prosperous life in old age. Only 1% of the survey participants believe that 25 thousand rubles will be enough for old age.

At the same time, 44% of Muscovites said that they need a pension within the same 45 thousand, but 38.5% are sure that they need more.

Most of the survey participants - 52.3% - said they want to receive or are already receiving a pension of 15 thousand rubles. Every fifth respondent would like his pension to be 30 thousand rubles. 4.3% of respondents agree on 45 thousand or more.
