The IMF did not like that the Groisman wants to reduce pensions by 30-40 percent.
The international monetary Fund approved pension reform, which was prepared by the Cabinet of Ministers. This is stated in the publication, Ukrainian news.
In particular, the IMF has stated claims to the government’s initiative of modernizing pensions on an ongoing basis and the abolition of taxation of pensions for working pensioners.
“These two initiatives, the IMF does not support”, – said the Agency interlocutor.
In addition, the IMF strongly opposed the government’s plans to reduce the coefficient of valuation of years of experience in the formula of calculation of pensions from 1.35 to 1.
The actual cancellation of this factor can lead to a substantial reduction of pensions by 30-40%.
Recall that in the framework of the pension reform in Ukraine will increase the required insurance period. The Cabinet adopted a bill on pension reform with the possibility of buying 5 years of experience.
The Memorandum between Ukraine and the IMF provides that to create a stable basis for the pension system to Parliament before the end of may 2017 to adopt comprehensive pension reform, which will enter into force on 1 January 2018.
