90% of Russians Against Increased Retirement Age

UrBC, Moscow, July 6, 2018. 89% of Russians are not in favor of raising men’s retirement age to 65 and 90% are opposed to raising women’s retirement age to 63, according to Levada Center’s recent survey findings.

70% and 73% of respondents, respectively, said they felt strongly against it, and only 7% to 8% of those surveyed said they supported the new legislature.

Most respondents (87% and 84%, respectively) believe the current retirement age (60 for men and 55 for women) is the best possible option. Only 13% to 14% of those surveyed believe it’s also possible to retire later, but they mostly have three to four years later in mind.
