In Ukraine, about half of the grantees did not apply for the following year. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of social policy.
It is noted that bodies of social protection automatically reassigned assistance to 2.6 million Ukrainian families. However, other recipients of state aid need to re-apply and submit a Declaration of income.
“If you compare the summer last year and this year, the dynamics with the appointment of housing subsidies is about the same. The process becomes busier with the approach of October, then the management of social protection of the population in a week processes more than 100 thousand applications,” – said the Minister of social policy Andrei Reva.
He urged citizens to apply before the start of the heating season not to stand in line in the fall.
“The Department of social protection will review the documents, assign the subsidy and its amount for the heating season calculate automatically, without further reference, in October 2018,” the Minister said.
For further subsidies to families must submit an application and income Declaration, which indicates their kind (pension, stipend, salary, etc), not the size. You also need to specify the name of the company that pays the money. The rest of the information the pension Fund receives from organizations providing services: the composition of registered persons, the flat area, the size of the rent – from housing departments or other authorised bodies of local self-government; the cost of electricity from power companies, gas – gas, heating – heating utilities.
Recall, from may 1, 2018 in Ukraine from may 1 began to operate the new rules for granting subsidies for payment of housing and communal services. The vast majority of Ukrainians – 85% – subsidies for the next heating season will renew automatically. In bodies of social protection need to address those categories of citizens who fall under the new criteria.
