Defense Ministry Colonel’s Pension: How to Increase?

Reading time: 4 min.

When it comes to recalculating military pensions, pensioners often face an unmotivated refusal from the Pension Fund. However, the law and court practice in such cases are on the side of the plaintiff, and the number of claims against the Pension Fund in the administrative process is very high. The same applies to claims against the Territorial Center for Recruitment and Social Support. If you need support and representation in such a case, the team of Prikhodko & Partners Law Firm is ready to help. We specialize in such client requests and know exactly how to act in such cases to get the desired result.

An exemplary case on the recalculation of pensions for military personnel considered by the Supreme Court

The decision of the Supreme Court of 17.12.2019 № Pz/9901/20/19 (№ 160/8324/19) is very indicative in this category of cases. It concerns a situation where a pensioner was denied an updated certificate of the amount of his pension. Therefore, he appealed the actions of the representatives of the TCC and the JV, which concerned the refusal to issue this certificate.

 

Prior to the consideration of this exemplary case, the pensioner received a pension in accordance with the amount indicated in the previous certificate of the amount of financial support. It included:

  1. official salary;
  2. salary for military rank;
  3. longevity allowance.

The case marked a new beginning in this regard, as additional types of financial support were now taken into account. Thus, the pension amount has increased significantly. Let's look at a specific example.

Increasing the pension of a colonel of the Ministry of Defense: a case study

So, the team of Prikhodko & Partners Law Firm was approached by a pensioner Vyacheslav Avramovich, who in 2018 was recalculated a pension from a certificate of the amount of financial support in the amount of UAH 14265 for the position of deputy head of the department. It is worth noting that at the time of signing the agreement with our company, he received a pension of UAH 11086.

We provided comprehensive legal support in this case. As a result, Viacheslav Avramovych received an updated certificate of financial support. The pension was stated in the amount of UAH 27,953. The amount of the pension was increased to UAH 23,610, taking into account this figure.

As evidenced by case № 380/19324/23

Let's look at another relevant case that has become a model. The ruling of the Supreme Court of Ukraine in case № 380/19324/23 created an opportunity for colonels of the Ministry of Defense to have the right to receive an updated certificate as of 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023, taking into account the subsistence level for the relevant calendar year. These were the claims of the pensioner against the state body authorized to issue such certificates.

Speaking briefly about why this is important, it is worth noting that the pension after passing all the stages increases by 30-40%.
