The Russians will be given the opportunity to withdraw their pension savings

The Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation is preparing a list of difficult life situations, upon the occurrence of which citizens will be able to get the right to dispose of their pension savings formed in the system of compulsory pension insurance until 2014. This was announced by the Deputy Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation Alexei Moiseev on the sidelines of the forum “Banks of Russia – XXI century”, TASS reports.


“Now pension savings lie without any real opportunity to do something with them, except to transfer them from fund to fund. We would like to give people the opportunity to add their own funds to these funds, or, if the employer expresses such a desire, that is, to use them more actively. Secondly, if a person is in a difficult life situation, he has no time for plans for what will be there in 20 years, he needs to spend today [деньги] for treatment, that sort of thing. Still, it’s not fair when this money lies, these 150-200 thousand, and he cannot do anything with it. Therefore, we want to provide such an opportunity, ”said Moiseev.


He noted that now there is a discussion of the list of so-called difficult life situations in which citizens can be given the opportunity to use this money. At the same time, according to him, it is necessary to avoid the use of this right in all kinds of schemes.


“The list of so-called difficult life situations is now being discussed. He, in principle, is part of the mortgage. Whether there will be the same list, I can’t say, but it will be some specific life situations, so that after all there is no situation like in life insurance in the early 2000s, when all situations were invented and received money, ”added Moiseev.


According to the data of the Central Bank for the 1st quarter, 4.5 trillion rubles of pension savings were “mothballed” in the NPF.
