Autumn in Ukraine will consider in the second reading and the whole government project of pension reform. The document envisages a series of innovations both for current and for future pensioners. Enter “modernity” (5.6 million pensions will be recalculated, as a result, they will grow from 200 to more than 1000 UAH), stricter rules on the calculation of seniority. It also introduces the so-called “effective retirement age” – the part of the Ukrainians will retire at 63 or 65 years.
To earn a pension, enough to have 15 years of experience. The only difference is that now the Ukrainians with 15 years of experience retire at 60 years, and in 2028-m, if the reform will take, will retire at 65.
The minimum requirement for a pension at 65 is not changed, it was fixed at 15 years. But the requirements for pension at 63 and 60 years will grow 10 years, increasing each year by 12 months. So, next year, in 60 years to receive his pension can the Ukrainians with 25 years of experience, and by 2028-mu need to work at least 35 years.
It is worth considering that the Ukrainian, who has 15 years of experience, the pension will not receive. Now about 100 thousand Ukrainians of retirement age do not get a pension, instead of the state pays them social assistance. However, according to the law “On state social assistance to persons who are not eligible for retirement”, the amount of such aid is only 30% of the subsistence minimum for the disabled.
