The theme of the day is a decent old age.
During the economic crisis, everyone is struggling.
But we must not forget that there are at least two categories of people to whom the state is obliged to help at all times: children and the elderly.
In the country, 38.5 million pensioners, the subsistence minimum at the end of 1998 amounted to 717 rubles, the average pension is 403 rubles 02 kopecks, but even this money is not seen by old people, delays in the payment of pensions stretched for many months.
How and why does this happen?
When and how did the government generate huge debts to the pension fund?
How to make money from the budget, does it make sense to introduce professional pension schemes and where to look for support?
Is it possible at all worthy old age in our country?
