Гройсман объяснил, в чем суть пенсионной реформы

Pension reform will provide for an increase in pensions and the reduction of the deficit of the Pension Fund.

Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman said that the pension reform will include an increase in pensions and the reduction of the deficit of the Pension Fund of Ukraine. He said this live on ICTV.

“I want to emphasize that the main task of our governments and Parliament, because we will need political support, is a systemic reform of the pension system, which will be accompanied, uniquely, by raising pensions…it will be a system that will produce no deficit in the Pension Fund and to reduce and make the system self-sufficient,” said the head of government.

Groisman also said that he intends to fight illegal employment, because it leads to the impoverishment of pensioners and those who work informally, then you will receive only the minimum pension.

Pension in 2017 will grow up to be Pension Fund

We will remind, the Memorandum on cooperation between Ukraine and the IMF referred to the need to the end of December 2016, to adopt a law on pension reform.

The reform itself should provide for a gradual increase in the retirement age in Ukraine.
