According to Oleksandr Danyluk, the Minister of Finance, verification of social benefits resulted in savings of about 10 billion UAH.
“It’s hard to say so far what brought better result – verification or other measures, but we would change our approach, we had already established work with the Pension Fund and the Ministry of Social Policy. Next year we would strengthen verification measures because it saves taxpayers’ money,”- Danyluk said reporting in the Parliament.
The Ministry of Finance checked the correctness of the calculation of pensions and other social benefits. This process began in March 2016. At the same time the Ministry of Finance stressed that verification did not mean the abolition of social payments, but only identify cheaters and those who did not have the right to receive social assistance.
