The article offers and studies a cellular automaton multi-agent imitation model of dynamics of the process of propagation of the non-state pension provision (NPP) that allows imitation and visualisation of the space-time dynamics of the pension social medium, reproduction of mechanisms of inter-subject interaction in the social medium differentiated by socio-psychological and role properties with consideration of a synergetic effect of joint impact of agents of the NPP system and influence of mass media on the subjects of the social medium. A series of imitation experiments allowed establishment of dependence of scenarios of evolution of the pension social medium on parameters of the process of propagation of NPP: ratios of coverage of the pension social medium by professional agents and mass media, number of effective contacts, ratio of reduction of the level of distrust of the population to NPP, level of perception of information of NPP agents and level of their influence. The article detects regular attractors in evolution of the pension social medium, the moments of appearance and characteristics of which depend on parameters of the process of propagation of NPP, some of these parameters are controlled.
