On the pension agreement between Russia and Azerbaijan

A bilateral agreement on pension cooperation was signed in Baku in April last year.

Its provisions apply not only to those who have directly gained seniority in a neighboring country, but also to their families. For all of them, when calculating the pension, the time during which they worked in a neighboring country will be taken into account.

In addition, when moving to permanent residence, the pension, if desired by the pensioner himself, will be transferred there.

Until the middle of last year, "pension" relations between Moscow and Baku were regulated by the pension agreement of the CIS countries. The law on its denunciation was issued by the head of the Russian state on June 11, it completely ceased to operate on June 30.
