The draft budget also sets the minimum wage for 2013 .

Minimum wage - the statutory amount of wages for simple, unskilled labor, below which no payment can be made for the monthly work performed by the employee, as well as the hourly rate of work (amount of work) (Article 95 of the Code of Labor Laws of Ukraine).

The minimum wage is a state social guarantee, mandatory throughout Ukraine for enterprises, institutions, organizations of all forms of ownership and management and individuals.

This is the last increase in the cost of living and all related payments this year.

Прожиточный минимум 2012-2013

It should be noted that the law on the state budget for 2013 turned out to be quite economical: the cost of living and all related social benefits during the year, we can say, almost did not increase. The minimum wage, pensions and benefits were raised in January. And the next one - the last one this year - an increase is planned for December.

Recall that the subsistence minimum is set for the four main categories of the population, and is also calculated on average for a resident of the country ( see table No. 1 ). This standard is used to determine the size of most social benefits. Moreover, when calculating them, the subsistence minimum is used precisely for the category of citizens to whom the payment is due. For example, when determining the size of pensions, the subsistence minimum for disabled people is applied, the allowances for families with children are the cost of living for children of different ages, the minimum wage is the cost of living for the able-bodied.

As we have already said, in connection with an increase in the cost of living, all payments related to it will increase. To begin with, from December 1, the minimum wage will increase - from 1147 to 1218 hryvnias. And also all salaries to state employees.

Payments to families with children and children's allowances will increase.

For example, help with the birth of the first child will increase by 1 thousand 800 hryvnias - up to 30 thousand 960 hryvnias. Help for the birth of a second child will increase by 3 thousand 600 hryvnias, which will rise to 61 thousand 920 hryvnias. And payments for the third and all subsequent children will increase by 7 thousand 200 hryvnias - up to 123 thousand 840 hryvnias. In addition, the minimum and maximum amounts of assistance for caring for a child up to the age of three will increase, as well as assistance to single mothers, payments to children under guardianship or guardianship, orphans and those whose parents refuse to pay child support.

Most importantly, the country's minimum pension will increase by 55 hryvnias, which is set at the cost of living for disabled people, from 894 to 949 hryvnias.

The minimum payments to people with disabilities, the liquidators of the consequences of the Chernobyl accident, as well as people with disabilities and participants in hostilities, will also increase ( see table No. 2 ). Recall that in our country, they have increased the minimum pension (from 165 to 285 percent of the subsistence level).

In December, those pension increases that depend on the cost of living will increase. For example, the maximum surcharge for seniority is from 8 hryvnias 94 kopecks to 9 hryvnias 49 kopecks for each “extra” year. Donors for retirement benefits will no longer be paid 110 hryvnias 80 kopecks, but 117 hryvnias 60 kopecks (10 percent of the subsistence minimum on average per person). The allowance for children of war also increased (accounting for 7 percent of the subsistence minimum for disabled people) - from 62 hryvnias 58 kopecks to 66 hryvnias 43 kopecks . Increases and increases for war veterans ( see table No. 3 ).

We emphasize that it is a question of increasing the already existing allowances and increases, and not of the appearance of new additional payments for pensions from December. All allowances are assigned to pensioners at the same time as the pension is calculated. But then their size grows as the cost of living increases.

It should be recalled that since 2013, supplementary pension payments to veterans of the war during the Great Patriotic War and to disabled people of the second and third groups of the Great Patriotic War who reached 85 years of age were set at a uniform rate of 50 percent of the subsistence level.

In addition, due to an increase in the subsistence level, military personnel will increase their pensions, the minimum amount of which is set at 100 to 130 percent of the subsistence level (from 949 to 1234 hryvnias) depending on the category. The minimum pension for non-working miners (which are covered by the Law on Increasing the Prestige of Miner Labor "), set at three living wages (from December 2 thousand 847 hryvnias), will increase.

All types of pensions for special services will grow, ranging from 20 to 40 percent of the subsistence level (from 189 hryvnias 80 kopecks to 379 hryvnias 60 kopecks), as well as state social assistance for the care and payment of Chernobyl.

On November 19, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a bill initiated by the Cabinet of Ministers, which introduces a rule on the inclusion of parental leave for women under 3 years of age in insurance coverage and will be taken into account when calculating a pension. Annually, 500 thousand women in Ukraine go on such leave. For every mother, such a decision is confidence in the future, strengthening social protection.

The Ministry of Social Policy is developing a package of proposals on the possible return of women with young children to work. In particular, a bill has been prepared that will allow women with children to work remotely. On the one hand, a woman will be able to pay attention to the family, on the other hand, have additional income, gradually return to work. Regardless of whether the woman decides to work as much as possible on a career or devote herself to the family - she will have the opportunity to realize her decision.

On December 1, assistance will be given to the birth of children : for the first child from 29 160 to 30 960 UAH. (for 1 800 UAH.), the second - from 58 320 UAH. up to 61 920 (for UAH 3,600), for the third and subsequent ones - from 116,640 to 123,840 (for UAH 7,200).

This year, as part of the Social Initiatives of the President of Ukraine, the premium for caring for children with disabilities of subgroup A (with an extremely high degree of health loss) was significantly increased to 100% of the subsistence minimum for children. At the moment, state aid for disabled children without an allowance for care is 949 UAH., For disabled children under 6 years old with an allowance for care - 1,180 UAH., From 6 to 18 years old - 1 307 UAH., For disabled children ( subgroup A) up to 6 years with an allowance for care - UAH 1 696; for children of this subgroup from 6 to 18 years with an allowance for care - 1 950 UAH.

Regarding children with disabilities, deprived of parental care , this year the President renewed justice - they began to receive 894 UAH. (from December 1 - 949 UAH.) there is more social assistance, since they received state aid for disability, adding it to the total amount of the allowance. So 1,612 children from July 2013 received instead of 1 944 UAH. (children under 6 years) and 2 420 UAH. (from 6 to 18) - 2 838 UAH. and 3 314 UAH. respectively.
