The basic law regulates certain cases concerning the military. For example, Russians who have a disability as a result of a military trauma have the opportunity to receive a disability pension and old-age insurance coverage. According to Fedorov, military pensions are paid from the federal budget.
“I am a former soldier and I have such a pension. This is more of a social benefit. However, the military pension does not provide for savings. When planning expenditures in various areas, the state budget allocates funds for payments to the military who have the right to life support, ”the politician said. But there is a specific order for all military personnel: you must serve at least 25 years in the army.
Parents or widows of military personnel who died can count on an insurance pension for the loss of a breadwinner. “Military service is a risk to life. In the event of the death of a military man during the performance of his duties, his pension provision is transferred to the widow. Thus, the state assumes the responsibility of life-long maintenance. Blockade members have the right to additional payments for special services to the country , ”Fedorov said. The appointment of military pensions is formalized with the help of orders of departments, and when using the State Services website, a person gets access to information.
Great Patriotic War veterans or citizens awarded with the sign “Resident of besieged Leningrad” will receive a disability pension and an old-age insurance pension. Disabled members of the family of the liquidators of the Chernobyl accident and family members of the deceased cosmonauts can also receive these payments, Newinform reports.
