Vladimir Putin promised to consider the possibility of including the period of work in non-state clinics in the early work experience of medical workers. Now this issue has to be resolved in court.
President of Russia Vladimir Putin At a meeting with entrepreneurs of the Far Eastern Federal District on January 11, he promised to consider the issue of including the period of work in a private clinic in the length of service of medical workers required for calculating early pensions. This proposal was made by the director of the Tari clinic chain, a dentist Natalia Afrikanova from Khabarovsk. She asked to equalize the rights of doctors working in organizations of different forms of ownership.
“We will definitely work on it. I don’t see much difference. It’s unfair,” the president emphasized.
According to the law, medical workers who have worked for at least 25 years in health care institutions in rural areas and urban-type settlements and at least 30 years in cities, rural areas and urban-type settlements, or only in cities. The assignment of a pension determines only the length of service and does not depend on age. The corresponding norms are in Article 30 of Federal Law No. 400-FZ of December 28, 2013 “On Insurance Pensions”.
But, as lawyers have noted more than once, despite the fact that there are no restrictions in the legislation on pension provision for persons who worked in non-governmental organizations, they are often refused to count part of their length of service and have to seek an early pension in court.
Two-thirds (83%) of Russian doctors surveyed see the need to continue working after receiving a professional pension, mainly due to the economic component, which was indicated by 63% of respondents. The rest believe that “it’s interesting to work, but there’s nothing to do in retirement,” that is, continuing to work is obviously perceived by them as part of their usual way of life, wrote MV. At the same time, almost half of the surveyed specialists (49%) responded that more than 40% of doctors in their clinic are of retirement age.
