Voluntary pension savings help not only to maintain the usual standard of living after retirement, but also to retire earlier. Rabota.ru and NPF of Sberbank joint survey showed that almost one third of Russians (31%) want to retire before the age of 55, and 69% of respondents want to finish their careers after 55. At the same time, every fifth participant in the survey plans to retire at the ages of 60-65 (22% of men and 17% of women). As much as 27% of Russians, both men and women, would like to retire at the ages of 55-60.

Women want to retire earlier than men. As much as 39% of women and only 23% of men want to finish their careers before 55. Only 17% of women would like to retire after 65, compared to 28% of men.

One fifth of respondents (20%) are sure that they will be able to leave their jobs before retirement. As much as 13% of respondents have additional sources of income; another 4% of respondents have enough savings to live without a job; and 3% believe that when they early retire, their families will support them.
