March 11th. FINMARKET.RU – The recent increase in the retirement age in Russia has not become a panacea: the ratio of pensions and wages will decline in the future. Therefore, new measures will be required. This will be announced at the April International Scientific Conference of the Higher School of Economics (HSE). As one of the measures, a group of scientists from the Russian Academy of National Economy and Civil Service (RANEPA) is considering a gradual increase in the rate of insurance premiums: from the current 22 to 25% by 2030, followed by a decrease after 2044 to 24%, writes Nezavisimaya Gazeta.
