Should we be afraid of pension reform?

On June 16, 2018, Oksana Sinyavskaya, deputy director of the Institute for Social Policy, answered this question in the TVC program “Postscript”. The expert believes that the Government will gain money for additional indexation. This will affect all pensioners – they will only benefit from this measure.

Under current legislation the pensions will only fall. To index pensions higher than inflation we need drastic measures”, said Lilia Ovcharova, director for Social Studies, HSE, in the interview to the Pervyi (One) TV Channel

Without any extra sources of the pension funding, the pensions can go only lower under the current demographic situation. The raise of the retirement age is the price we have to pay to keep the pensions growing.

Lilia Ovcharova, director for Social Studies and director of the Institute for Social Policy, HSE, believes that today we have the only window of opportunity to raise the retirement age with the minimum losses

In the comment to the 360 TV channel, Lilia Ovcharova underlined that Russia, unfortunately, does not have any other sources to raise the pensions.
