How the amount of pension is calculated in Ukraine:
The pension of Ukrainians is calculated according to the formula: the average salary in the country for three years multiplied by the ratio of the average salary to one’s own, by the length of service in years and by 1%. At the same time, in retirement, you can receive not 80% of your salary, but only 80% of the average salary in the country for three years, provided that your salary at that time was not lower.
From December 1, 2021, in Ukraine for all categories of pensioners, the minimum pension was increased from 1854 to 1934 hryvnia.
On December 17, 2021, Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal announced that the average pension in Ukraine in December this year reached almost 4 thousand hryvnias.
