Il Tymen proposed to set a 30% supplementary pension for the Arctic residents
The Yakut parliamentarians proposed to establish a supplementary pension of 30% for residents of the Arctic regions, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports.
Today, the actual size of pensions ranges from 15 to 19 thousand rubles for working people of the indigenous peoples of the North. For non-working ones, but having an experience of 30 years, the supplementary is 25% to the sum of fixed payment, which is a little more than a thousand rubles.
“This amount does not suit us. Today, life requires from us to rethink support measures. We see that this is a subject that we should consider and take into account,” said Elena Golomareva, Chairman of the State Assembly Standing Committee (Il Tymen) on Issues of the Arctic and Indigenous Peoples.
