MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The decision was made within the framework of the President’s decree.
Order of September 2, 2021 No. 2421-r
More than 21.1 billion rubles will be allocated for one-time payments of 10 thousand rubles to military pensioners. The order was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
The money will go to citizens who receive a pension for military service or service equivalent to it. Payments will begin to be transferred in the near future. Funds for this were provided from the Government’s reserve fund.
Similar payments have already begun to be received by “civilian” pensioners, including those who are employed, the disabled and those who have lost their breadwinner. On August 25, by order of the Government, more than 433.3 billion rubles were allocated from the reserve fund for this.
Thus, the total amount of funds for one-time payments to all pensioners will amount to 454.4 billion rubles. The money will be received by about 45 million people.
To receive 10 thousand rubles, citizens do not need to submit any applications and documents – the money is transferred automatically, according to the principle of social treasury. These payments will not be considered when assessing the need for other social support measures.
“To receive presidential payments, pensioners do not need to take any action. The government took all the necessary measures for this. Everything should be simple and convenient for people, ”Mikhail Mishustin emphasized at a government meeting on September 3. The head of the Cabinet asked Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova to keep this work under personal control.
Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to pay all pensioners 10 thousand rubles one-time at a meeting with representatives of the United Russia party, which took place on 22 August.
