Citizens in pre-retirement age, will receive the allowance for 12 months, she explained.

«We are in the budget for the 2019-2021 year laid the minimum amount of the allowance is 1500, and the amount of the benefit for working people, excluding pre-retirement age, — 8000 rubles, and for pre-retirement age – 11280 rubles. 11280 is the minimum wage, which is now set for 2019, based on legislation that was previously accepted,» recalled Tatyana Golikova.
