Pension Fund of the Russian Federation in Sevastopol: since June 2022, the rules for paying survivors' pensions have changed
From June 23 the rules for the payment of survivors’ pensions to young people who have reached 23 years and older, who have completed schooling, Lyceum this year. The Pension Fund now automatically extends their pension payment until September 1.
In June of this year, new rules for the payment of survivor’s pensions to persons 23 and older who have completed schooling came into force. Recall that earlier after graduation, the payment of a survivor’s pension to children who reached 18 years was stopped for the summer period and resumed if they enrolled in full-time education. At the same time, the resumption of the payment of a survivor’s pension was carried out after a certificate from the new place of study was provided to the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation. In accordance with the new federal law*, now the payment of a survivor’s pension is automatically extended until September 1 — if there is a certificate of the period of study at school, lyceum in the pension file. Then, if the recipient of the pension confirms admission to full-time education in an educational organization, the payment will continue until graduation, but no longer than until reaching the age of 23-s, — reported the press service of the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation in Sevastopol.
The law also simplifies the procedure for assigning an insurance pension in the event of the loss of a breadwinner in relation to the children of a deceased breadwinner who have reached the age of 18 years and are studying full-time in educational organizations.
For the purpose of the specified pension, the dependency of such children is now assumed a priori and does not require proof (additional provision of certificates) until they complete their studies, but not longer than until they reach 23 years, provided that on the day of the death of the breadwinner, his children did not work.
After young people provide certificates of admission to educational institutions, FIU specialists will establish a survivor’s pension without additional confirmation of being dependent.
