Now the Russians after treatment in the Pension Fund of Russia or in the Fund get in your personal profile notifications about the status of pension savings by a certain date. But the form of these notices do not provide detailed information, in particular, there are no data on the annual result of the investment of savings and the amount of the guaranteed amount on 31 December 2014. After this date, the citizens lost the opportunity to transfer their savings from one Fund to another without a loss of investment income more frequently than once in five years.
