As the workers who worked abroad to receive a pension in Ukraine. The nuances of the new law

In order to receive a decent pension and generally get it, the Ukrainians should have sufficient insurance experience. That is, the employer is required to make constant contributions to the Pension Fund of its employees. Now we need to have at least 15 years of pensionable service to retire according to age. From 1 January 2018 the figure will increase to 25 years, and 2028 and up to 35 years. Those who do not have a sufficient amount of insurance, they can buy it from the state. This is especially true of migrant workers who work abroad and in Ukraine with their earnings did not pay into the Pension Fund.

The nuances of such situations, said the Chairman of the Board of the Pension Fund of Ukraine Oleksiy Zarudny in a live program “snidanok z “1+1”.

“Those who have had experience in accordance with the Ukrainian legislation, who paid sufficient contributions to the Pension Fund, they shall be entitled to receive a pension in Ukraine. Including those who worked abroad. By the way, the innovation that the law provides, is the ability, for example, when people working abroad to pay for these periods (2004-2010) and to restore the right to receive a pension. Not pay for all the years, but only for those people working abroad to renew your insurance experience. The minimum Deposit with minimum wage – today it is 704 hryvnia per month by a factor of 2. That is a month – 1400 UAH”, – said the head of the PFCs.

“Entitled to a pension with a certain availability of insurance. And if the person does not have sufficient insurance experience, for whatever reason, he can pay them for the previous period in order to acquire the right to pension. To find out your insurance experience possible on the website of the Pension Fund (after registration) or to apply directly to the Pension Fund (regardless of registration)“, – said the head of the Pension Fund.
