The editorial office of “Sovetsky Sakhalin” was contacted by a woman from South Sakhalin, who read on the Internet about an increase in her pension in the amount of 7,500 rubles from November 1. November 1 came, but there was no money!
The press service of the branch of the Pension Fund in Sakhalin region reported that such additional payment is not provided for by the current legislation. And on the Internet – a fake that should not be trusted.
Ex-miners have official pension supplements. Since May 1, 616 Sakhalin retired miners have received an additional 6,893 rubles. Cash Increase Conditions: Full-time employment with coal industry organizations in underground coal and shale mining operations for at least 25 years.
Also, non-working pensioners from Sakhalin and Kuril can apply to the Pension Fund’s customer services to apply for free travel to and from a place of rest in Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Novosibirsk, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Sochi, Anapa, Simferopol, Kaliningrad, but only until December 1, 2022.
You must arrive after prior online booking. You can find it on the website of the Pension Fund or by calling 8 (4242) 49-55-05.
