The Central Bank of the Russian Federation, together with the main non-public pension funds of the FNP, aimed at encouraging Russians to participate more actively in the accumulation system, has prepared a new pension reform .
According to Kommersant, it is assumed that the current funded portion of pension payments will be turned into a non-public pension system. And NGOs, in turn, will complement the existing similar mechanism.
According to the media, the Central Bank will transform the system, despite the failures of the first projects, such as an individual retirement capital and a guaranteed retirement scheme.
According to the Deputy Director of the Bank of Russia Viktor Chistyukhin, Russian policyholders will be able to dispose of their money as & # 8220; property & # 8221; fully.
Recall that now the pension savings that employers transferred until 2014 are managed by the GUK VEB, or chosen by an NPF citizen.

In addition, according to the project, future retirees will be offered benefits that would encourage them to actively participate in the formation of payments. For example, tax deductions of 6% of total income.
Also, judging by the information from & # 8220; Kommersant & # 8221;, it is likely that the new system will have the ability to independently reconstitute accounts, without involving employers as intermediaries.

In particular, Peskov explained that although the country's president has held all meetings during the pandemic since 2020, it is difficult to call such a mode of operation via video communication.

On the reasons for recognizing the FCB as an extremist organization, Peskov explained that all the details are described in the court decision, but the fact that this organization “called on people to violate the law “to chaos & # 8221; is a clear precedent.
In terms of the crisis due to the pandemic in small and medium-sized enterprises, as Peskov explained, Russia shows positive dynamics in the economy and is already starting to emerge from the crisis and & # 8220; people on the ground are feeling it & # 8221 ;.
& # 8220; Now the economy is working. Yes, the difficulties continue, continue, as after the earthquake, the aftershocks. This also continues in the economy, but nevertheless the situation is different – everything lives, everything works, has problems, but it no longer requires such massive help & # 8221;, – said Peskov.
The President Representative noted that under current conditions, domestic companies should behave responsibly and focus on domestic investments.

Peskov also noted that targeted aid to businesses and low-income groups of the population has proven to be effective, unlike on-going aid and 'donate' money like that '.
