The procedure for paying additional remuneration to military servicemen

Reading time: 5 min.

Inquiries related to the payment of additional compensation to military personnel are among the key topics that our legal team faces in their work. Law office "Prikhodko&Partners" specializes in such issues and very often deals with clients' appeals in the field of military law. First of all, in order to understand this topic, we suggest that you familiarize yourself with the list of legal acts that regulate the issue of additional remuneration for the military.


What legislation is worth paying attention to?

So, if you want to learn more about this topic, the following legal acts will be relevant here:

  • The procedure for payment of monetary support to servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and some other persons. It was approved by Order No. 260 of the Ministry of Defense of June 7, 2018.
  • Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers No. 836 dated August 9, 2023, which is entitled "On Amendments to Resolution No. 168 of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated February 28, 2022." And, of course, the legal act itself, the norms of which were changed and which is mentioned in this title, also deserves attention.
  • Order of the Ministry of Defense of September 26, 2023 No. 566 "On Approval of Changes to the Procedure for Paying Financial Support to Servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and Some Other Persons."
  • The Law "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine on Strengthening Social Protection of Servicemen, Policemen and Some Other Persons". It has the number 3379-IX and is dated September 6, 2023.

As you can see, the legal framework is quite voluminous. Therefore, it is difficult to understand it without having legal knowledge and practice at a professional level. That is why clients turn to qualified lawyers for help, for whom it is customary to work in the field of military law, protecting the legitimate interests of those who turn to them.

What else is worth knowing about additional monetary compensation for military personnel?

Payment of additional remuneration for military personnel may vary in size. This is due to the fact that the conditions in which combat tasks are performed are different. You can learn more about this by reviewing paragraph 13 of the already mentioned Order of the Ministry of Defense No. 566.

It specifies the situations in which 100,000 hryvnias, 50,000 hryvnias and 30,000 hryvnias are provided for under martial law. For example, the greatest reward belongs to those who directly participate in combat; 50,000 hryvnias - to those who perform tasks in military administration bodies, the headquarters of a tactical group or the headquarters of a troop group; 30,000 - to those who perform combat or special tasks per month in proportion to the time spent performing such tasks.

These provisions were listed in very general terms above. You can see them in more detail in the Order itself. By the way, the same legal act indicates when the additional remuneration is not paid.

What is the procedure for paying additional remuneration to military personnel?

As for the grounds for payment, the orders are:

  • commanders of military units, when it comes to remuneration of personnel;
  • heads of military administration bodies, when it comes to commanders of military units.

Regarding the terms, the orders according to which such additional remuneration is paid for the previous month are issued by the 5th of the current month. Appropriate reports of commanders are required for their formation.

How can our services be useful?

The team of the "Prikhodko&Partners" law office is often contacted by military personnel who complain that they are not being paid an adequate amount of financial support. In such a case, it is difficult to defend one's truth. Especially - when a serviceman's time is occupied with performing his immediate tasks by type of service.


Here, an effective tool for influencing the situation will be a lawyer's request to the military unit in order to obtain a certificate of financial support of a serviceman. It is she who will make it possible to understand whether you are receiving the appropriate funds in full. Then there are 2 possible options - a report for recalculation, or, if it did not give a result, you need to go to court.

We support such cases in a "turnkey" format and we know very well that they are profitable. So we are ready to offer our services if your rights are violated. Fill out the form on our website and our lawyer will contact you shortly.
