In the opinion of the regulator, the functions of the administrator in the system of individual pension capital should not perform associated with the state structure. “Still, it should be a market entity that is not associated with any group. Why I don’t believe in a government institution or pseudohalogen, for example, the FIU? There is always a strict budget, the very heavy bureaucratic procedures, a lot of other functionality that does not focus on tasks,” – said Chistyukhin.

According to him, the view that through the PFR it will be cheaper, controversial.

The concept of IPK

The concept of individual pension capital (PKI) developed by the Bank and Ministry of Finance suggests auto-connect citizens to the formation of pension savings. That is, instead of the employer contributions will do the employee.

Employers in turn will automatically deduct up to 6% of the employee’s salary to a private pension Fund (NPF) to his personal account. While people still have the opportunity to unsubscribe.
