The Russian Pension Fund opened a learning website, Telling Schoolchildren about Pension, by the new school year. The captivating visual website tells schoolchildren how the Russian pension system works and how to start forming one’s pension correctly.

The new online project of PFR will navigate schoolchildren and college students through the formation of their future pension and suggest the necessary steps. For instance, they will learn how to receive their SNILS number or choose the appropriate pension plan. In addition, schoolchildren will receive useful information about using the PFR personal account service, so that they could start controlling their future pension from the very first day.

The key factors of pension are demonstrated on the website as life situations; it is easy to remember what should be done in a particular case to enlarge one’s pension savings. A test will help schoolchildren check and solidify their knowledge.
