The Ministry of Finance opposes the indexation of pensions to working pensioners. The head of the Ministry Anton Siluanov believes that the fair to support non-working pensioners.
A pension is compensation for lost earnings, and if a pensioner who receives a pension, still working, earnings are not lost. He may be small, this income, but in General it receives and earnings, and retirement— said Siluanov.
In recent years, wages are rising on average, higher than the rate of inflation. According to him, the issue is not even about the money, “a certain justice”.
Perhaps this is not quite true, because after retirement the man who now receives a pension and salary, would receive an increased pension, taking into account the allowances that were taken during his work, — quotes the Minister TASS.
According to him, the Ministry wants to focus on the support of unemployed pensioners. This increased indexation of their pensions above the rate of inflation included in the budget. Siluanov said that more than fair to help those who are not working because these citizens need government support.
