Appeal to the Pension Fund for pension recalculation

Reading time: 4 min.

The pension granted earlier may lose its relevance and adequacy to the real needs of the pensioner over time. This means that its amount ceases to correspond to the cost of living and does not ensure a decent existence for older citizens.

Reasons for recalculating a pension

  1. Increase in financial support.
  2. Changes in length of service.
  3. Acquisition of the right to an additional pension.
  4. Detection of errors in pension calculation.
  5. Additional grounds for recalculation of military pensions:
  • Obtaining a disability as a result of hostilities.
  • Assignment of another military rank.


In such cases, pensioners have the legal right to initiate a pension recalculation by submitting a motivated request directly to the Pension Fund of Ukraine. The Pension Fund is obliged to reconsider the amount of pension payment in accordance with the applicable laws and changed actual circumstances.

Don't let your pension become irrelevant!
