Alexei Kudrin noted that the topic of pension reform at the meeting was practically not touched upon. “This was discussed in only two appearances, he said. – There was a report of higher school of Economics on the preservation of accumulative part of pensions”.

The ex-Minister of Finance noted that he is a supporter of changing the pension system some other way. For example, through a change in the retirement age and the procedure for calculating pensions, but not through the abolition of the mandatory funded part.
Earlier Alexey Kudrin spoke about the need for pension reform, in particular to the gradual increase in the retirement age for men and women to 63 years. The idea of raising the retirement age is contained in the proposals of the Ministry of economy, which the Economic Council on Wednesday,may 25, the President will present Alexei Ulyukayev. Kudrin noted that today’s meeting is of an Advisory nature and no decision has yet been taken.
We will remind that earlier the Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Russia proposed to transfer the cumulative part of the pension from the statutory to the voluntary format. The first Deputy Chairman of the state Duma, member of Committee on budget and taxes Alexander Zhukov later noted that the fate of the funded part of pensions will be solved the next convocation of the state Duma.
