Tetyana Kozyan told in the telethon “Yedini Novyni” who has the right to compensation for a dead serviceman

Reading time: 3 min.

The television marathon "Edyny Novyny" regularly raises topics relevant to society, and our specialists do not remain aloof. Therefore, Tetyana Kozyan, a lawyer practicing military law at the Prikhodko&Partners law firm, who specializes in military law, told on a recent broadcast of the 1+1 TV channel who can claim compensation in connection with the death of a serviceman while performing combat duties?

Who is eligible for payment?

Therefore, the parents of the deceased, one of the spouses (if such a person has not remarried), minor children and persons who were dependent on him have this right. Native children have the right to a share in such compensation, if the deceased is indicated by their father (or mother). It does not matter whether they were born in wedlock or out of wedlock. The main thing is documentary confirmation of the fact of paternity.

The host of the marathon asked this clarifying question on the air. Indeed, the topic of compensation is a certain trigger for society. Many different myths and speculations can be heard around her. Therefore, legal comments from experts who work in the field of military law are very appropriate.

If the fact of child maintenance is proven in court or by a notarized certificate, they can also claim a share in the compensation. Here we are not talking about native, adopted or adopted children, but about a stepson or a stepdaughter. The only difference will be that in the case of native children, there will be enough documents to prove paternity, and in the case of stepdaughters and stepsons, the rights of such a child will need to be protected in court.

And what about adult children?

Currently, there is a legal norm according to which the adult children of the deceased do not have the right to the mentioned payment, except for the situation when such a child is studying full-time at a university. Then she will have the right to receive her share of compensation for the deceased up to the age of 23.

 

At the same time, the legislation in this topic is quite dynamic, so it constantly adapts to the requirements of the time. As of today, the Verkhovna Rada has registered a draft law, which proposes to expand the circle of persons who will be able to receive the mentioned payment. It is proposed to include adult children in this list.
