Pension in Ukraine does not depend on wages.

Pension system in Ukraine is not sufficiently simple and transparent. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman, when presenting the government’s draft Pension reform.

“We have a huge injustice when calculating pensions. Additionally, the system charges too complicated – nobody in Ukraine can predict and calculate what his pension will be, how changes in legislation may affect his pension. Completely lost the differentiation of pensions from wages – in fact, how much would you have earned today, no, you still get a minimum pension”, – said Groisman.

He added that the eight million is assigned to Supplement the minimum pension.

“The recent modernization of pensions occurred in 2011. In fact, it happened in 2012, but the average salary, which included modernity, was taken in 2007-th year. At the same time, since 2012, wages rose nine times, and pensions – never,” – said Groisman.

As reported, the Prime Minister said that the majority of Ukrainian pensioners are forced to live below the poverty line.

We will remind, yesterday, on may 16, arrived in Ukraine mission of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to finalize the draft law on Pension reform in Ukraine.
