FROM NOVEMBER 2019, FULL AMOUNT OF PAYMENTS WILL BE SHOWN ON THE RECEIPT - BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN REPEAL OF BENEFITS!!
No benefits were cancelled!
It only means that from October 1, 2019, a new mechanism for calculating benefits for housing and communal services came into force.
Therefore, Attention! Detailed explanation of the innovation provided by the Ministry of Social Policy:
Now the benefit is provided in cash by the social protection authorities.
The amount of benefits will be transferred to State Savings Bank of Ukraine (Oschadbank) for further settlements with service providers for each specific beneficiary (on a non-cash basis).
Beneficiaries who have applied to the social security authority for cash benefits will be paid in cash in the manner indicated in the application (bank or post office).
In the case of receiving benefits in cash form, the beneficiary must pay the consumed services in full. Other beneficiaries pay, as before, part of the payment and the amount of the benefit for them is transferred to the service providers from Oschadbank (if phone number information is available, the beneficiary will receive an information message from the bank about processed payments).
Given that the appropriate mechanism is being introduced for the first time, due to inaccuracies in the data for technical reasons, there may be cases of non-transferring of the benefits to individuals for October 2019.
In this case, the Ministry of Social Policy recommends contacting the social security authority at the place of residence to clarify the information. In this case, the amount of benefits for October will be transferred next month.
