Composer Igor Nikolaev recently celebrated his 60th birthday and received the title of People's Artist. Igor Yuryevich already knows that the title is not only honorable, but also profitable:
“I am not yet retired - the retirement age has been raised. But it seems like they add thirty for the folk. If the usual pension is twenty thousand, then I will have fifty."
Nikolaev is right - that's how it is. Taking into account their regalia, celebrities have quite decent pensions by Russian standards, which, however, can be divided into several groups.
From 55 thousand rubles
All honored and people's artists for the second year receive a premium to their pension for the title in the amount of 30 thousand rubles. True, there is one nuance: the payment is made in the capital, so only those who have a Moscow residence permit receive it, therefore, for example, People's Artist of the RSFSR Mikhail Boyarsky living in St. Petersburg cannot count on such a bonus.
In addition, some artists have increased departmental pensions or awards for orders. The premium for orders is called supplementary material support (ADL). Only unemployed retired artists can receive it.
For example, full holders of the Order of Merit for the Fatherland (among them, for example, Yuri Solomin and Tatyana Doronina) are paid extra 22 thousand. The holders of the Order of Merit for the Fatherland II (Alla Pugacheva, Alexandra Pakhmutova, Oleg Strizhenov, Valentin Gaft, Vladimir Menshov) are paid extra 17 thousand. DMO is constantly indexed, as it is tied to the base size of the social pension. All order bearers have titles, so they receive a pension of more than 55 thousand rubles.
It is known that Yuri Stoyanov, taking into account the allowances for awards and the title of People's Artist, ran over 62 thousand rubles. And the Honored Artist of the Russian Federation Nikas Safronov, taking into account the additional payment of 45 thousand rubles for the title of academician of the Russian Academy of Arts, earned a pension of 57 thousand rubles. People's Artist Larisa Luzhina, who is entitled to the so-called blockade allowance, has 62 thousand rubles.
From 42 thousand rubles
There are about a thousand honored and folk artists in the capital. Most of them have no other allowances, so they are glad of the recently appeared additional payment for the title.
Taking into account it, art workers get an average of 42 to 53 thousand pension rubles a month. This is exactly how much Angelina Vovk, Elena Yakovleva, Tatyana Vasilyeva, Tatyana Dogileva, Elena Safonova, Larisa Udovichenko, Evgenia Simonova, Elena Proklova, Larisa Dolina, Irina Allegrova, Nadezhda Kadysheva receive.
From 12 to 30 thousand rubles
Alas, some respected people bypass titles, so they get much less than their famous colleagues with crusts.
Here's what the pensions of some of them look like:
- Yuri Loza - 12 thousand rubles.
- Roza Syabitova, Regina Dubovitskaya - 16 thousand rubles.
- Elena Hanga, Lolita Milyavskaya - 22-23 thousand rubles.
- Nikolay Drozdov - 30 thousand rubles.
