The Ministry of Labor has proposed to include in the lists of jobs that give the right to early retirement, periods of vocational training and additional vocational education of workers. This is reported by “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” with reference to the draft government decree developed by the department.
According to the publication, the Ministry of Labor proposes to amend the lists of jobs, professions, industries, positions and specialties, taking into account which an old-age insurance pension will be assigned ahead of schedule. In such lists, as noted by “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”, it is proposed to include periods of professional training and additional professional education of employees, which are a condition for the performance of certain activities
We are talking about those time intervals in which the employee is absent from the workplace, but it remains for him, and the employer pays insurance contributions to the Pension Fund for him.
Currently, according to the law, those citizens who have gained a certain experience in professions, positions and institutions can apply for early retirement. For example, doctors, teachers and public transport workers can retire early. At the same time, the length of service, which gives the right to early retirement benefits, includes periods of activity during a full working day, for which insurance contributions are paid to the PFR. Also, the length of service includes the periods of receiving benefits for state social insurance during the period of temporary disability and the annual periods of the main and additional paid holidays. Besides this, there are special circumstances. In particular, the period of transfer of pregnant women from work, which gives the right to the early appointment of an old-age labor pension.
In January, Tatyana Kusayko, Deputy Chairperson of the Federation Council Committee on Social Policy, announced that in 2021, early retirement can be obtained by medical workers who work with patients infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus.
