Introduction. The article is devoted to the research of Soviet period legislation in the sphere of pension provision for men and women in the USSR. Discussion. As the result of the research of the Soviet state legislation the author, places emphasis on pension
provision for men in the USSR. The special attention is paid to criteria which were used by the Soviet state while defining retirement age for men and women. The author draws a conclusion that the legislation of the Soviet period was stable and reliable. Conclusion. As the result of the analysis of the Soviet state policy for men in the sphere of pension provision, the author comes to the conclusion that the legislation of the Soviet period until 1925, equalized the legal status of men and women in the sphere of pension provision. However, the establishment of different retirement age for men and women led to the emergence of gender discrimination of men in the sphere of pension provision.
