Abstract:

The article presents the results of a study of the impact of pension reform in Russia on economic
growth and quality of life in a digital economy, taking into account the experience of raising the
retirement age in Europe. The aim of the study was to identify and analyze the impact of raising the
retirement age on economic growth in the context of the development of digitalization in Russia and a
comparative analysis with European countries.
Results: the studies conducted allowed us to develop a system of indicators characterizing the impact
of raising the retirement age on economic growth and the quality of life of the population in the context
of digitalization.
The authors found that raising the retirement age leads to a change in labor relations in Russia and
Europe. The application of the proposed indicators can be used in the formation of a balanced state
socio-economic policy in the field of institutional changes in the field of labor relations and raising the
retirement age. The study was carried out under a grant from the RFBR № 19-010-00362 А.

Keywords:

Pension reform, Economic growth, Quality of life, Digital economy, Digitalization, Russia,
