The reform of the pension security of employees of law enforcement agencies will start from 1 January 2018, even if the Verkhovna Rada does not manage to consider the relevant law before the end of this year. About this stated the Minister of social policy Andrei Reva, the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers.
“Regardless of when the Verkhovna Rada will adopt the law, recalculation of pensions will start from 1 January 2018 – in the law-prescribed norm, which is established by allocation from this date,” said Reva.
Thus, citizens will not be affected by the factors associated with the process of consideration and adoption of the law, but the obligatory condition for the modernization of pensions of servicemen and employees of other law enforcement authorities is its adoption by the Verkhovna Rada.
“The law provides that as a result of modernizing pensions will be increased for each individual depending on length and size allowance. But if we talk about an average increase, it will amount to 1.5 thousand UAH. A lot or a little? This is substantially more than today, and if civilian pension rose on average by 30%, for the military growth will average 62%”, – said the Minister.
Earlier it was reported that the Cabinet has decided to pay pensions to Ukrainians in January 2018 in December of this year.
