According to a study of "social contracts" in 2009, a group of seniors has been identified as the most loyal to the authorities and meet their own financial situation. At the same satisfaction of retirees and a high level of loyalty to the authorities was not high due to the size of pensions, and low expectations from the state and satisfaction with the stability provided to them a set of social benefits. A key feature of the "social contract" with retirees is the high level of paternalism in the past, and the low level of requests.
