A pilot project of the Pension Fund of Russia (PFR) e-application for transfer of pension savings through certification centers could create risks of falsification of applications of citizens, according to the auditors of the accounts chamber of the Russian Federation.

«Test adopted by the FIU from the accredited certifying centres of applications for changing of the insurer to identified risks of falsification of statements on behalf of the insured persons. has identified a few schemes that prevent the realization of the right of citizens to change insurer,» — said the SP on the audit procedures to apply for transfer of pension savings of citizens.

According to auditors, citizens can apply to transfer their savings from the PFR to NPF, and between non-state funds in an electronic form via the single portal of public and municipal services or a personal account of the insured person on the website of the FIU. However, the auditors found that these services during the specified period was not available.

«The inaccessibility of the portal of state services and the personal account on the website of the FIU has led to an increase in the number of applications for changing of the insurer coming into the FIU through certifying centers under the pilot project, implemented by the FIU in 2014», — stated in the documents of the controlling Agency. The essence of this project lies in the fact that the statements in electronic form to the FIU do not come directly from the insured, and certifying centers, which in interaction with agents of the NPF form for an insured qualified electronic signature.

The auditors identified several violations, in particular, was installed a massive income duplicate applications from the same person. «The risks are amplified by the fact that the technology of an application through the certification authority does not preclude misuse of the electronic signature of the insured person and his / her personal data as well as processing the application without his participation», — is spoken in the message.

Actions of certification authorities to transfer statements about the change of the insurer to the pension Fund need to be checked from the Ministry of communications, the document says.
