Рева: Спецпенсии оставят только военным и силовикам

The Minister said, what will happen to the special pensions

The amount of the pension will no longer depend on the position.

The amount of pension will depend on the length of service and salary, but not from the position a person holds, and the occupational pensions will leave only the military and security forces. This was stated by Minister of social policy Andrei Reva Thursday, October 12, reports UKRINFORM.

“For everyone except military and security personnel entered regular retirement. We have article 17 of the Constitution of Ukraine, we had 15 of the laws under which we regulate retirement security, and the people were divided into different categories, depending on how much they pay the premiums and for how long, and from where they work,” said Reva.

According to him, a separate law on pension provision of military and security forces will be submitted to the Parliament before 1 November. It will be approximately 560,000 pensioners.

We will remind, the law on increase of pensions, the launching of the so-called pension reform entered into force on 11 October.

Also recall that on 3 October the Verkhovna Rada passed the pension reform, which envisages the modernization of pensions since October, and raising the minimum insurance period for retirement from 15 to 25 years from 1 January 2018.
