Federal Law No. 60-FZ of May 3, 2006 on the Amendments to the Federal Law on the Banks and Banking Activities and the Federal Law on the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (Bank of Russia)

The Federal Law on the banks and banking activities is extended to include new norms specifying the minimum amount of own resources (capital) for banks in the amount of EUR 5 mn rouble equivalent and for non-bank credit organisations - EUR 500,000 and their responsibility for the reduction of this minimum amount.

The given norms are introduced from January 1, 2007. The banks possessing as of January 1, 2007 own resources (capital) in the amount below EUR 5 mn rouble equivalent may continue their activities on condition that the amount of their own resources (capital) will not reduce as compared to the level of this date.

The amendments extend the list of the types of works specified in the rules where the periods of work are summed up in cases of an early assignment of the labour pension to citizens. The list includes the periods of work as rescue workers in professional rescue services and formations of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia; works with convicts as employees of institutions of execution of punishments in the form of imprisonment; works in positions of the State Fire Service (fire fighting and rescue services) of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia.

The mentioned amendments adjust the procedure of summing up of the periods of work permitting to get an early labour pension. Thus, the periods of work in the regions of the Far North and localities of similar status must be summed up with the periods of work included in the list. Besides, the periods of works in the underground without any restrictions must be added to the periods of work in heavy conditions. Earlier, such types of works were summed up only for men after 55 years of age and women after 50 years of age if they had worked in heavy conditions for at least 12 years and 6 months and 10 years respectively and had the insured length of service at least 25 and 20 years respectively.

The procedure of calculation of the periods of work on a rotational basis in the regions of the Far North and localities of similar status that was earlier applied for an early assignment of labour pensions to men after 55 and women after 50, if they had worked for at least 15 calendar years in the regions of the Far North or at least 20 calendar years in localities of similar status and have the insured length of service at least 25 and 20 years respectively, shall apply also to one more category of workers. This is women after 50 years of age having born two or more children if they have the insured length of service at least 20 years and have worked for at least 12 calendar years in the regions of the Far North or at least 17 calendar years in localities of the similar status (on a rotational basis).

In addition to the above, the rules are extended to include the provisions on the particulars of calculation of the length of service on the water transport, as well as the periods of underground work. The amendments introduce a rule requiring to include in the length of work permitting an early assignment of the labour old-age pension the time of the paid forced absenteeism in cases of illegal dismissal or transfer to another job followed by subsequent restoration at the previous place of work permitting an early assignment of the labour old-age pension.
