Media: Ministry of Finance proposed to allow “privatization” of pension savings
We are talking about savings that have been frozen since 2014.
The Russian Ministry of Finance proposed to “privatize” pension savings of Russian citizens. We are talking about funds that are currently frozen, starting in 2014.
As they write “Vedomosti”, referring to the presentation of the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance, which was previously presented by the heads of departments, it is proposed to give the Russians who have pension savings, investment rights.
So, they will be able to invest these funds at their choice, subject to certain criteria.
According to Anatoly Aksakov, head of the State Duma committee on financial markets , withdrawal of funds is not expected during the investment process.
He explained that the Ministry of Finance wants to create a system in which Russians will be able to choose from several options: either leave their savings under the management of a fund, like a PFR or an NPF, or invest them independently, subject to certain conditions.
Recall that now citizens of the Russian Federation can only transfer savings under the OPS system from one non-state fund to another, other operations with these funds are not available to them.
