Not long ago, the head of the Ministry of Social Policy Zholnovich informed that the bulk of the Pension Fund’s income does not depend on the provision of international financial assistance, but is replenished with revenues from Ukrainian taxpayers, that is, older citizens should not worry about stopping the accrual of pension benefits and various social assistance, and now the Cabinet of Ministers has confirmed a similar statement.
About the likely occurrence of a scenario in which the government will be forced to reduce social spending and the list of benefit categories of the population, writes “ NBN”, referring to the statement of Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmygal, published by the specialized portal “On Pensions”.
According to Shmygal, the government clearly understands what tools and options it has, and can already clearly answer – “pensions will be paid on time.” In addition, the indexation of payments planned for March 2024 will take place without difficulties, within the framework provided for by the norms of current legislation.
Also, the salaries of teachers and doctors will not stop being paid regularly and in a timely manner, since “Ukraine has agreements with 11 states on multi-year financing programs.”
Earlier, we wrote about the fact that the PFU demonstrated a list of documents required to process payments in 2024 year.
