The changes will affect military families, soldiers of Regardie, employees of the Federal penitentiary service, and police and firefighters. As explained in the Department, the basis of the decision on the revision of the benefits system laid down by the constitutional court of the Russian Federation. Under the current law, the pension for loss of breadwinner can be assigned only once regardless of the number of dead relatives. Thus, if the family lost two sons – fighters, money to their elderly parents as if they lost one child. The same situation exists in the case did not return her husband and son. Judges of the constitutional court found this provision unconstitutional and unfair. If developed by the military amendments are approved, these families can count on an increased rate of pension provision. Them to the usual pension for loss of breadwinner will be charged a premium of 200 percent from the calculated pension amount. As the authors of the amendments, the potential recipients of the new higher social benefits, there are only 10 people. New benefits for them will deprive the budget of only 1.2 million rubles.
