At the initiative of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Cabinet of Ministers adopted a decision on September 15 to provide additional support to pensioners. As Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal noted during the Government session, the decision will concern an increase of monthly supplements to the planned pension provision.
"From October 1, 2022, pensioners aged 70-75 will be assigned monthly supplements of up to UAH 300. This will cover the categories of citizens with pensions under the average salary for 2020. This is a continuation of the systemic policy of the President and the Government in the direction of establishing fair social benefits," Denys Shmyhal accentuated.
The Prime Minister also reminded that from October 2021, pensioners aged 75-80 would receive additional payments of up to UAH 400.
