Social protection of military personnel

Reading time: 3 min.

Issues of social protection of military personnel are relevant today. Especially considering the realities of a full-scale war and the increase in the number of people serving in the army.

It is worth noting that military law belongs to the key specialization of the "Prikhodko&Partners" law firm team.

Therefore, clients often turn to us for advice and legal support in matters related to social benefits and guarantees available to military personnel. But before we tell you how our services can be useful, let's touch on the question of how Ukrainian legislation regulates this area.


What does the law say?

The key law of our country, which regulates the issue of social protection of military personnel, is the Law of Ukraine "On Social and Legal Protection of Military Personnel and Their Family Members" № 2011-XII. It dates from December 20, 1991. In this normative legal act, you can familiarize yourself with the basic rights of the military. Namely, it is worth paying special attention to the legal norms established in Section 2 (Articles 9, 9-1, 10-1, 14, 16). So, let's briefly focus on the content of the listed articles:

  • Article 9 highlights the aspect of monetary support for the military and defines its components. In particular, it refers to official salary and salary by military rank, monthly additional types of health insurance, as well as one-time additional types of health insurance.
  • In article 9-1, you can read more about material and food support, which the state provided for the military.
  • Article 10-1 details which vacations belong to Ukrainian military personnel. For example, the basic annual leave for those with up to 10 years of service should be 30 calendar days. For those whose service is within 10-15 years, it is 35 days. And so, depending on the term of service, this duration can be up to 45 days.
  • Article 14 deals with benefits, in particular, a significant part of these legal norms concerns the issue of travel.
  • Article 16 stipulates which one-time payments belong to a military man or his family in cases of disability, death, or partial loss of working capacity.

Well, we should not forget about the right of military personnel to challenge illegal decisions and actions that concern them. These can be decisions, actions or inaction of military administration bodies and commanders.
