More than half of retirees in Russia are unemployed
Only 40% of citizens of pre-retirement age in Russia work officially. At the same time, out of six million unemployed elderly people, some have finished working ahead of schedule or can no longer work due to disability.
The data on this are indicated in the letter of the PFR to Rostrud. As they write "News", experts estimate the unemployment rate among retirees as extremely high. They associate this state of affairs with the reluctance of employers to accept older employees. Another reason is an informal employment relationship.
Now in Russia there are 1,8 million working men of 1959-1963 birthdays and 2,2 million employed women of 1964-1968 birthdays. In total, in the country, according to the 1 of January this year, there are 4,3 million men and 5,8 million women of pre-retirement age - a total of 10,1 million people.
