Will we live to retirement?
Opponents of pension reform use the same argument - they say, the overwhelming number of people will not live to retirement. But is it really? Let's turn to objective information ...
It turns out, according to the scholars of the Higher School of Economics (HSE), after moving to new boundaries of retirement age (65 years for men and 63 years for women), Russian pensioners will live 14.5 and 23 years, and the proportion of surviving until retirement will be 80–90 %, and this is deliberately low data without taking into account the future progress of health care and the growth of living standards.
On average, Russians will live after retirement, taking into account raising the retirement age for more than 15 years. A detailed report of the Higher School of Economics "The demographic context of raising the retirement age" is available here.
And do not lie, that no one will live to retirement here. Every year, life expectancy in Russia is increasing, today men who have lived to 65 years old, provided that the mortality rates of 2016 are preserved, have to live 13.4 years, and women who live to 63 years old - 19.3 years.
