Thanks to the financial support of its partners, Ukraine is continuing to increase social benefits for those who need it most. This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a Government session on 1 December.
In particular, pensions were 100% funded in November. UAH 57.8 billion was paid out.
“We are continuing the programme of monthly supplements to old-age pensions. Pensioners aged 80 and over will receive a monthly pension supplement of UAH 570. Pensioners aged 75-80 will receive UAH 456, and pensioners aged 70-75 will receive an additional UAH 300 per month,” said Denys Shmyhal.
In addition, the Government, together with UNICEF, is continuing the programme of support for Ukrainian families.
“We are talking about payments to low-income families with many children in eight frontline districts of Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv regions. These families will be able to receive UAH 3,600 per adult and UAH 6,600 per child for three months,” the Prime Minister said.
The Head of Government also thanked the partners for their assistance in implementing this important programme.
