Thus, total Pension Fund received about 2.6 million claims about select pension.

At the end of 2015 ended the right of citizens to choose a pension option is to form an accumulative and insurance part of the pension or insurance only, in connection with this, many NPF was observed by the speculative inflow of “undecideds” at the end of last year.

According to the survey of large pension funds, in 2015 they have made 8.5 million agreements on compulsory pension insurance.

The General Director of consulting company “Pension partner” Sergey Kolesnov said that after signing the contract with NPF citizen must personally apply for the transfer of savings to the pension Fund. However, not all citizens reach the Pension Fund, so the number of applications less than the number of contracts concluded at least one third. Thus he FIU “rejects” approximately 20-30% of applications due to the fact that citizens incorrectly filled application form or turned in two funds.

Under the law, despite the expiration of select pension provision, citizens still have the right to transfer the previously formed pension accruals (until January 1, 2016) from PFR in NPF.
