Head of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin made personnel changes in the Pension Fund. Instead of Andrey Kigim department will head Sergey Chirkov.
Two weeks ago it became known that the government decided to create a single social fund, which will combine the functions of the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation and the Social Insurance Fund. The achieved level of digitalization of the economy makes it possible to create a single platform, which will make it easier for the state to provide assistance to citizens.
It is likely that the new head of the FIU will be entrusted with the task of synchronizing the office work of the two structures.
Chirkov has been with the Pension Fund since 2001. 15 years ago, he became head of the department for pensions for people living abroad. Since 2012, he held the position of head of the department for organizing the appointment and payment of pensions, reports RT.
In July 2018, Chirkov was appointed Deputy Chairman of the Board of the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation.
