Preferential pension for health workers in 2019

The latest news suggests that the bill on the gradual increase of the retirement age has already been passed, and we suggest finding out whether the preferential pension to health workers will continue in 2019 and what the promised change in legislation will bring to this category.

We are glad to rejoice - the right to an early entrance to the well-deserved rest “for long years” for employees of medical institutions will be preserved, but with some adjustments.

Doctor of retirement age

Current legislature

Under preferential pensions are understood old-age insurance pensions for certain groups of workers who have the necessary work experience. Such payments are appointed before citizens reach the general retirement age. A similar rule is enshrined in the Federal Law of December 28, 2013 No. 400-ФЗ (as amended on June 27, 2018) “On insurance pensions”.

Categories of people who have the right to apply for preferential charges are indicated in Art. 30 FZ number 400 is:

  • workers of mines, harmful or hot industries;
  • researchers and developers of useful deposits;
  • tractor drivers, drivers, drivers of road, construction and loading-unloading vehicles;
  • public transport drivers;
  • workers of textile factories where heavy and intensive production is conducted;
  • persons serving the metro or rail transport;
  • scouts, search engines, hydrologists, geophysics, etc .;
  • masters of logging and timber rafting;
  • seafarers working on sea, river and fishing vessels;
  • pilots and flight controllers;
  • employees of institutions that execute criminal penalties;
  • firefighters;
  • machine operators carrying out loading and unloading at ports and docks;
  • teachers and educators;
  • participants of theatrical and entertainment events and theater artists;
  • health workersproviding assistance to the population in villages, urban and urban settlements and cities (p. 20 part 1 of article 30 of the Federal Law No. 400-ФЗ).

Today, a health worker needs to work over 25 years if he works only in villages and urban-type settlements, and over 30 years if he works (or has ever worked) also in the city.

The health worker smiles

For this item, the gender or age of the employee is not important - the primary factor for the appointment of an early retirement pension is experience.Preferential payments are often a serious financial help for health workers, because, depending on the individual pension ratios (IPC) and points, their amounts can reach 10,000-11,000 rubles a month.

It is important! According to the latest news, starting from January 1, 2019, the period of disability of health workers will gradually increase, and the age of assignment of their pension, on the contrary, will be postponed.


The rules for granting preferential pensions will change not only in relation to health workers, but also in respect of teachers and theater artists. The government plans to retain the indicators for seniority set for them, however, adding another 5 years to them from above - this period will be considered the period of "drawing up pension payments."

Innovation will enter the lives of workers in these categories not immediately, but gradually - the process will drag on from 2019 to 2028. You can find out how payments will be made during the transitional 5-year period from the table below:

Retirement table for physicians since 2019

For example, if in 2019 a health worker who has worked exactly 25 years in a rural area or 30 years in an urban environment gives papers for a preferential pension, he will receive actual deductions only from 2020.

In other words, starting from 2023, the real period from the beginning of labor activity until receiving a pension from health workers will be not 25-30 years, but 30-35 years, respectively. The authorities plan to introduce such a change in order to smooth the difference between the retirement age of doctors , teachers and theater artists and ordinary workers who go on a well-deserved rest on the generally established requirements.

When will the doctor be able to retire from 2019

If desired, health workers will be able to issue pension payments like everyone else, i.e. immediately after reaching the age of 65 (men) or 60 years (women).

Who will not touch

The Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of the Russian Federation separately noted the “social significance” of the activities that medical workers, teachers and artists perform day after day. However, the planned measures seem to the authorities both fair and rational.

At the same time, in 2019, the government decided to leave unchanged the provisions on early retirement pensions, which are appointed to employees listed in Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of the USSR of January 26, 1991 No. 10 (as amended on 02.10.1991) “On Approval of the Lists of Production and indicators giving the right to preferential pension provision ”.The regulatory legal act consists of 2 parts, each of which indicates the most dangerous and difficult professions - apparatchiks, crushers, cement workers, press operators and many others.
