In all economic crises and social upheavals, pensioners suffer the most. Because of their age, they can no longer find a part-time job, work late, so the state supports them financially. Let's try to find out who will receive a pension from January 1, 2022 and by how much.

Pensioners' law

On May 26, 2021, Federal Law No. 153 was adopted, which comes into force on January 1, 2022. There will be many changes that affect pre-retirees, people receiving disability pensions, but there will be other innovations. There is a section devoted to the indexation of insurance pensions in Russia.


In 2022, the increase in the insurance pension will be felt by non-working pensioners, but not all. One condition must be met - a pension with all social benefits (if any) must not reach the subsistence level in a particular region. It should be remembered that there are additional payments at the regional and federal levels. Regional ones are laid where the cost of living is higher than the federal one, for example, in Moscow.

Social and state services have established departmental ties with each other, so that the surcharge will be charged without collecting documents. The increase is automatically added to the pension.

Pensioners who have lived in rural areas for 30 years are entitled to an additional payment of 25% to the insurance part of their pension. In 2021 it was 1,511 rubles.

Indexation since 2022

Federal Law No. 153 indicates to whom the pension will be added from January 1, 2022, and by how much. These will be non-working pensioners. The increase will be 5, 9%. The law stipulates indexation for several years:

  • 2022 - 5, 9%;
  • 2023 - 5.6%;
  • 2024 - 5.5%.

The average insurance pension in our country in 2022 is 17,536 rubles. The amount of the increase ultimately depends on the amount of the insurance pension. If it is 8,000 rubles, the increase will be 472 rubles. But upon receipt of an insurance pension of 17,000 rubles, indexation in January 2022 will add another 1,003 rubles.


In 2016, a restriction on the indexation of pensions was introduced in relation to working pensioners. In 2022, they will only be recalculated in August. As a result, the increments for additional seniority received after retirement will be determined.

Recipients of insurance pensions in Russia are 32 million pensioners.

Ways to increase the insurance part of the pension

The annual indexation of pensions is not able to offset the constant rise in prices. One of the ways to get out of this situation is to increase the insurance part of the pension. Alexander Spiridonov, a leading lawyer at the European Legal Service, listed several official, legal ways of such an increase:

  • Refuse some of the benefits (receiving medicines, free travel to the place of rest, and others). Instead, the pensioner receives a monthly increase in his pension of 1,200 rubles.
  • Postpone retirement.
  • Purchase insurance points. You must first order a personal account statement on the State Services website and find out the need to purchase points. There is a chance that there will be enough of them by the time of retirement.
  • A childcare period of up to one and a half years adds retirement points.

The Russian government is concerned that citizens do not care about their future pensions. For this reason, from 2022, the Pension Fund will send notifications about the amount of future pension to persons over 40 years old every 3 years. According to Russian government officials, such a measure will make middle-aged people think about their savings.

  • Recalculation to working pensioners who receive insurance pensions from February 1, 2022 (from 4, 7, to 5, 2% at the end of 2021).
  • Lump sum payments to veterans.

According to the law, up to 70% can be deducted from the pension in connection with debts for alimony, loans, fines.
