Article 7 of the Federal law 309 - FZ to the Federal law 76 - FZ makes changes and the item 13 (earlier establishing size percentage the long-service bonus) is stated in a new wording which provides an establishment of the mentioned extra charge in an order defined by the Federal law 306 - FZ which for the military men having a period of service of 25 years and more, makes now 40 percent.

Positions have come into force since January, 1st, 2012, and concerning military men of bodies of military Office of Public Prosecutor - since January, 1st, 2013 (about distribution of the given restrictions on pensioners from among military public prosecutors in the law it is not specified).

According to item 5 of the Federal law 306 - FZ item 4 and 5 governmental orders of the Russian Federation from 05. 12. 2011 992 About an establishment of salaries of the monetary maintenance of the military men passing military service under the contract it is provided that at revision of the sizes of the pensions, appointed to citizens till January, 1st, 2012 according to the Law of the Russian Federation from 12. 02. 93 4468 - 1 without dependence from time of an establishment for operating military men of new salaries of the monetary maintenance, it is necessary to apply salaries on military posts and salaries on the military ranks, established according to item 1 and 2 decisions. In case of reduction of the sizes of pensions of the citizens discharged from military service, in connection with coming into force of the Federal law 306 - FZ the sizes of pensions established by it according to the legislation of the Russian Federation, operating till January, 1st, 2012, before buying pension in bolshem the size remain. At an establishment by the military man (military pensioners) new salaries, monthly long-service bonuses in the size defined by the same law should be applied.

Taking into account stated as revision of pensions to military public prosecutors since January, 1st, 2012 is made taking into account a new salary on a military rank on the conditions established for military men, recalculation of pensions taking into account a new salary on a military rank and the percentage long-service bonus is made obosnovanno (according to norms of the Federal law 306 - FZ).

As a result of it the general size of pension has not decreased, as decrease in size of the percentage long-service bonus as a part of pension is compensated by substantial growth of the sizes of salaries on a military rank.
