The study’s objective is to develop a methodology for studying the conceptual foundations of pension legislation in three countries: the United Kingdom, France, and Russia. The following methods were used to perform the tasks set out in the introduction: analysis and synthesis, induction and deduction, systematic, sociological, statistical, formal-legal, comparative-legal, historical, and legal methods. The result of this work was the author’s methodology for studying the conceptual foundations of pension legislation. This methodology includes the following elements: definition and justification of the subject of research, establishing its spatial and temporal framework, development and justification of the author’s periodization of the conceptual foundations of pension legislation. In addition, as part of this study, the need to apply the conceptual foundations of pension legislation such methods of knowledge as dialectical approach, general scientific methods (analysis, synthesis, systematic), private scientific methods (sociological, statistical, mathematical), and private legal methods (formal-legal, comparative-legal, historical and legal) is justified. The choice of three specific countries is since they represent different models of pension provision and different legal families. The study proves the special methodological significance of considering pension as a combination of two interrelated elements: pension insurance and budget support. The study’s novelty is due to the problem statement (the conceptual foundations of the pension legislation of the United Kingdom, France, and Russia are the first to appear as the subject of the study), as well as the interdisciplinary nature of the proposed approaches. The developed methodology can be used to study pension and other social security legislation and be extended to other countries as objects of study.
