The compensation for living expenses is related to the benefits of international partners, which they provide to Ukraine.
As Deputy Prime Minister – Minister for the Reintegration of the Timely Occupied Territories Irina Vereshchuk stated, partners can make it possible to continuously verify payments by changing them and optimizing them ї. Vaughn added that the international patterns for the adaptation of migrants are sufficient for two reasons.
To whom assistance will be extended automatically
Payment of HPE assistance will be extended for another six-month period automatically (without filing a new application):
- persons who have wasted their time;
We are talking about Ukrainians who have reached the retirement age, and receive a pension, the amount of which does not exceed the minimum cost of living for individuals who have spent their time (9444 hryvnia).
- persons with disabilities;
These individuals with disabilities of groups I and II, children with disabilities up to 18 years of age, children with severe perinatal diseases of the nervous system, severe congenital development, rare orphans and illness, oncological, oncohematological illness, infantile cerebral palsy, severe mental disorders, cerebral diabetes type I (insulin-dependent), acute or chronic illness of the fourth stage, which resulted from a serious injury, will require organ transplantation, will require palliative care, for which a disability has not been established, which is confirmed documentarily.

Categories that can be covered by insurance for an extension of payment for another 6 months upon filing an application:
- homelands, depending on the size income does not exceed 9,444 hryvnias per person (which is the subsistence minimum for individuals who have lost their productivity).
- relatives, in which one of the members of the family looks after a special person with a Group I disability, or a child with a disability up to 18 years of age, or a seriously ill child.
- Vagetary women (starting from 30 years of age).
- As in the homeland there are children under 14 years of age, who are not able to cope with the birth and initial mortgages or the beginning of marriage Available in hybrid format.
Zokrema, the right to continued assistance to the motherland of the Higher Professional Education with children under 14 years of age who live in the zone of active or possible military operations. And also those families with children under 14 years of age who live in mentally safe regions of Ukraine, but in these settlements there is no possibility of raising a child to kindergarten, and schooling is done online.
By the way, since the homeland of the Higher Professional Education (mother and child) live in Kharkov, where schools operate online, the child begins at home, and the mother and child will receive help from afar.
“We will respect that the mother does not care about the surroundings outside of her, and is also afraid to keep an eye on her children.”, – explained the Minister of Social Policy Oksana Zholnovich.
In what cases will HPE payments be affected?
Changes may be made to stimulate HPE before implementation. Therefore, individuals who do not claim the status of unemployed at the Employment Center can spend a penny of additional assistance.
According to the Ministry of Social Policy, it is clear that from 1st February 2024 payments will continue to be made to their families, in which there is no need a great person. At the time of submitting an application for withdrawal of additional assistance from a higher education institution, such a person may be registered with the Employment Center as unemployed.
At the same time, after the re-recognition of assistance to such a homeland for the upcoming 6-month term, the current non-working member of the homeland is unable to accept his employment (for example, to register with the Employment Center) – an additional payment could be completed within a month.
It seems that the government has expanded the rules of additional assistance that will be given to the displaced. We are talking about people who have turned home from behind the cordon, but have not yet managed to settle down in Ukraine and do not have powerful sources of income.
