The Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Economics of the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia, Elena Grigorieva, in an interview with the Prime agency, named top professions in Russia with the biggest pensions.
The expert recalled that the Federal Statistics Service (Rosstat) conducts quarterly and annual monitoring of average pension sizes in the country by region. She noticed that even within one subject of the country, the figures vary significantly. The difference between the regions is twofold, she specified.
Thus, on January 1, 2022, the largest average pension was in the Chukotka. There, a maximum size of an average pension was 27 thousand 842 rubles. The smallest average pension appeared to be in Dagestan. There, it is only 12 thousand 627 rubles.
In addition, the amount of payments depends on the profession of a citizen. Politicians, officials, artists, and cosmonauts receive maximum pensions comparing to all the other professions.
