MOSCOW, October 12 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow government passed a bill on Wednesday which established minimum old-age pensions in Moscow at the level of 7, 137 roubles since 2012, which is 14 percent up the minimal pensions paid in 2011.
Mikhail Antontsev, a deputy of the Moscow Duma, said that the minimal pension established in Moscow is a signal to establish regional compensations to citizens who retired on territories other than Moscow, but who came to Moscow to stay with their relatives and had their pension allowances transferred to Moscow.
Antontsev said that according to information at his disposal the number of pensioners entitled to regional compensations is 3,000 now. Next year the overall allocations to such pensioners will make up around 100 million roubles, Antontsev said.
A minimal social standard established for pensioners in Moscow is 11,000 roubles in 2011 and 12,000 roubles in 2012, Antontsev said.
