The draft budget also sets the level of the minimum wage for 2013 .

The minimum wage is the statutory amount of wages for simple, unskilled labor, below which there can be no payment for the monthly and hourly rate of work performed by the employee (scope of work) (Article 95 of the Labor Code of Ukraine).

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

This is the last year's increase in the subsistence level and all related payments.

Прожиточный минимум 2012-2013

It should be noted that the law on the state budget for 2013 was quite economical: the subsistence level and all the social payments associated with it throughout the year, one can say, hardly increased. The minimum wage, pensions and benefits raised in January. And the next - the last this year - an increase is planned for December.

Recall that the cost of living is set for four main categories of the population, and also calculated on average for a resident of the country ( see table number 1 ). This standard is used to determine the size of most social payments. And at their calculation the subsistence minimum is used for the category of citizens who are supposed to receive the payment. For example, when determining the size of pensions, the subsistence minimum for disabled people is applied, allowances for families with children - a living wage for children of different ages, the minimum wage is the subsistence minimum for the able-bodied.

As we have already said, in connection with the increase in the subsistence minimum, all payments related to it will increase. To begin with, from December 1, the minimum wage will rise from 1147 to 1218 hryvnia. And also all salaries to state employees.

Increases payments to families with children and child benefits.

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

Most importantly, in the country for 55 hryvnia will grow a minimum pension, which is set at the subsistence level for disabled people - from 894 to 949 hryvnia.

Also, the minimum payments to disabled people - liquidators of the consequences of the Chernobyl accident, as well as war invalids and combatants ( see Table 2 ) will also increase. Recall that in our country for them the increased size of the minimum pension (from 165 to 285 percent of the subsistence minimum).

Increase in December those allowances to pensions, which depend on the subsistence level. For example, the maximum payment for the experience - from 8 hryvnia 94 kopecks to 9 hryvnia 49 kopecks for each "extra" year. Donors will be paid extra UAH 110, 80 kopecks, and 117 UAH 60 kopecks (10 percent of the subsistence minimum per person on average). There was also an increase in the children's war premium (amounting to 7 percent of the subsistence minimum for disabled persons) - from 62 hryvnia 58 kopecks to 66 hryvnia 43 kopecks . Increases were also raised for war veterans ( see Table 3 ).

Specifically, we emphasize that it is just about increasing the existing premiums and increases, and not about the appearance of new surcharges to pensions since December. All allowances are assigned to retirees at the same time as pension calculation. But then their size grows as the subsistence minimum increases.

It should be recalled that from 2013, surcharges to pensions to combatants during the Great Patriotic War and disabled veterans of the II and III groups of the Great Patriotic War who reached the age of 85 were established in a single amount - 50 percent of the subsistence minimum.

In addition, due to the increase in the subsistence minimum, the size of pensions will grow among servicemen, the minimum amount of which is set at a rate of 100 to 130 percent of the subsistence minimum (from 949 to 1234 hryvnia), depending on the category. The minimum pension of non-working miners will increase (which is covered by the Law "On raising the prestige of miner's work"), set at the level of three subsistence minimums (since December 2 thousand 847 hryvnia).

All types of pensions for special merits will be raised, amounting to 20 to 40 percent of the subsistence minimum (from UAH 189 to UAH809 to UAH379.00), as well as state social assistance for care and payments to Chernobyl victims.

On November 19, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a bill initiated by the Cabinet, which introduces the norm on the enrollment of childcare leave for children up to 3 years in the insurance record of women and will be taken into account when calculating pensions. Every year, 500 thousand women leave for such a holiday in Ukraine. For each mother, this decision is confidence in the future, strengthening of social protection.

Ministry of Social Policy is developing a package of proposals on the possible return of women with young children to work. In particular, a draft law 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 earnings, gradually return to work. Regardless of whether a woman decides to work as a career or devote herself to the family, she will have the opportunity to realize her decision.

December 1 will increase assistance for the birth of children : the first child from 29,160 to 30,960 UAH. (For 1 800 UAH.), The second - with 58 320 UAH. Up to 61,920 (UAH 3,600), the third and the following - from 116,640 to 123,840 (UAH 7,200).

This year, in the framework of the Social Initiatives of the President of Ukraine, the allowance for the care of children with disabilities of subgroup A (with exceptionally high loss of health) was significantly increased to 100% of the subsistence minimum for children. At the moment, the state aid for disabled children without a care allowance is 949 UAH, for children with disabilities up to 6 years with a surcharge for care - 1 180 UAH., From 6 to 18 years - 1,307 UAH., For disabled children ( Subgroup A) up to 6 years with a surcharge for care - 1 696 UAH., For children of this subgroup from 6 to 18 years with a care allowance - 1 950 UAH.

Regarding children with disabilities, deprived of parental care , this year the President has renewed justice - they began to receive at 894 UAH. (From December 1 - UAH 949), social assistance is more, 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.
