According to the expert, veterans of the Great Patriotic War, widows and parents of dead servicemen, as well as military pensioners, can expect to receive a double payment from the PFR at the moment.
According to Ermolaeva, the cases of double pension accrual prescribed in the current legislation are mainly related to the category of military citizens. For example, those who have received a disability due to an injury that they received during their military service can count on a double pension benefit. This category of Russians has the legal right to receive not only insurance pension payments, but also a disability pension.
