According to him, first of all, it is necessary to find out which of the options for receiving payments is the most profitable. So, a person can receive a social pension and, in addition, officially work and accumulate pension points. As soon as there are enough, he will be able to switch to a disability insurance pension.
Those who receive a military survivor’s pension have the opportunity to switch to the old-age pension if they are entitled to supplements.
The specialist noted that now citizens will have to look for profitable options to receive a pension themselves, because the Social Fund does not automatically transfer citizens from one type of pension to another.
“To do this, you will have to study the laws, obtain background information from the pension or social security authorities and calculate the best option,” Solovyov was quoted as saying by the Prime agency.
The specialist recalled that in some cases it is possible to receive two pensions at the same time. So, veterans of the Great Patriotic War, residents of besieged Leningrad, as well as people who received a disability in the war can apply for disability and old-age payments.
