Pensions and registration of the self-employed. What innovations await the Russians in August

In August 2022, laws will come into force that will affect different categories of Russians: pensioners, military mothers, self-employed, people involved in sports. Also, new rules for advertising placement, stay of citizens of Ukraine, LPR and DPR in Russia will come into force. What exactly will change in August — read in the selection.

Pensions will be indexed 

From August 1, pensions for working pensioners will be indexed. Those who have reached retirement age but still officially work, as well as Russians who quit in 2021, will be able to receive an increased payment. According to Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Social Policy Elena Bibikova, the maximum amount of the increase will be 354 rubles (3 pension coefficients x 118.1 rubles). How much the pensioner will receive after the recalculation depends on how much the Russian worked in 2021 and how many contributions were paid to the FIU. “So, if insurance premiums were paid for a person during the year based on the amount of one minimum wage, then for this year this person will earn one pension coefficient, more than three minimum wages — multiply by three, — Bibikova told Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

To receive an increased pension, you do not need to apply — accrual will happen automatically.

Also in August, those who celebrated their 80th anniversary in July or received the first group of disability will be able to receive an increased pension. The supplement to the pension will be 7,200 rubles.
