Pension insurance in the Russian Federation is based on the compulsory pension insurance model. The need to obtain an insurance certificate of compulsory pension insurance is obvious, since our financial security depends on it upon reaching the retirement age. To get a pension policy, you need to do a few things.
If you are applying for a job for the first time, you must write an application for the issuance of a mandatory pension insurance certificate to you. This procedure is required.
After that, the responsibility for processing and issuing this document falls on the employer. An employer, having applied to a branch of the Pension Fund without your participation, within two weeks from the date of your admission to work, must give you this type of document with an individual number of the insurance certificate. If for some reason you do not receive it within the agreed time, then you should ask your boss with a question.
The compulsory state insurance card is a green plastic document confirming that you are transferring certain amounts to your personal account to the Pension Fund and are further entitled to receive insurance premiums when you reach retirement age. Accordingly, the size of your pension will depend on this amount.
If you need to go to the Pension Fund office on your own for reasons, for example, loss of an insurance policy or change of name, you will need to fill out a special form with personal data. Many people forget to follow this procedure, which in the future turns into difficulties. Remember that when you change the certificate card or restore it, nothing will happen to your savings, because no processes will be performed with the personal account specified in this document at this time.
