The Bank of Russia has proposed to increase the amount of insurance compensation on deposits of citizens in “socially sensitive” situations. On Thursday, June 7, said the head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina, reports TASS.
“As for individuals, we consider it appropriate to increase the amount of compensation in situations when the investor objectively was not able to manage risk. Moreover, it is a socially sensitive situation: inheritance, purchase-sale, insurance payments and social benefits. The joint proposal we have worked with ASV (Agency on insurance of contributions — approx. “Of the tape.ru”), “—said she.
The Central Bank supports the proposal of the DIA to raise the threshold amount to the extent of which will not be challenged transactions for the payment of deposits up to 10 million rubles, said Nabiullina
Currently, the maximum compensation to the affected depositors of banks with revoked licenses is 1.4 million rubles.
