Pension supplements for northern and rural workers will be paid without application
Starting in 2024, supplemental payments on farm worker pensions for long periods of work in the Far North will be approved in an application-free procedure.
"The new procedure will relieve citizens of the need to submit applications and documents to the local offices of the Social Fund and will help save time. Citizens will be informed of the recalculation of their pension within three working days of the date of the approval via the public services portal or by mail," the press service of the State Duma Committee for the Development of the Far East and Arctic said.
At the same time, starting in 2026, the application-free procedure will also be in force for granting supplemental payments to pensions to citizens who have worked in the agriculture sector for at least 30 years. More than 500 professions are eligible for this bonus, including agronomists, beekeepers, tractor operators and mechanics who repaired agricultural machinery. The main requirement is that the workplace must be an agricultural enterprise involved in the production, cultivation and processing of agricultural products.
