The fact that an increase in the retirement age will nevertheless take place became known back in May, when Dmitry Medvedev announced the upcoming changes. A wave of criticism from the public forced the government to make adjustments. If in the spring it was about 65/63 years for men and women, then at the end of summer Vladimir Putin lowered the bar to 60 years for the weaker half. The head of state also noted the introduction of additional benefits. So, mothers with many children will be able to retire earlier than others. This period will depend on the number of their children. For example, if a woman has 3 children, then she may officially stop working 3 years earlier. Having four babies increases this right by another year. If the mother has five children or more, the right to retirement occurs at the age of 55.
“We need to increase the birth rate. After all, large families, giving birth to 3 or more children, are fed today, and in 20 years they will feed both pensioners and the country,” says Yuri Krupnov, who is the chairman of the supervisory board of the Institute for Demography, Migration and Regional Development.
