PROCEDURE FOR THE PAYMENT OF 15 MILLION UAH TO THE RELATIVES OF THE DEAD MILITARY

Unfortunately, in connection with the full-scale invasion of the Russian army into the territory of Ukraine, every day during the hostilities, servicemen who sincerely and devotedly defend our Motherland heroically give their lives.

And although the person cannot be returned, the state is trying with all its might to honor the memory of the dead and support their families. One such significant action is compensation for death in war. However, it is important to note that the procedure for obtaining such funds is not as easy, understandable and definitive as it might seem at once. In this case, a military lawyer who understands the legislation and algorithms for obtaining such compensation can come in handy and will be able to provide professional qualified assistance.

As for the general provisions of Ukrainian legislation, according to the Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers № 168, a payment in the amount of 15 million hryvnias is guaranteed to the families of the dead military.

Important! A rather positive point is that not only family members of the deceased serviceman, but also other persons who were dependent on the deceased, can claim the specified payment. It follows from this that the amount of compensation is paid to all persons entitled to it, but in equal shares.

So, the main question is: “How can one get a one-time financial assistance in the amount of 15 million hryvnias?”

Let’s focus on the procedure in more detail.

First of all, it is necessary to obtain a death certificate and documents on the results of the investigation and the circumstances of death, which must be provided by the Territorial recruitment center (military registration and enlistment office) or a military unit. However, there are certain conditions that must be met in order to be able to receive funds. So, in these documents it should be indicated that death occurred precisely “in the line of duty” and “associated with the defense of the Motherland.”

Therefore, after receiving these documents, the interested person should contact the commander of the military unit to obtain:

 

extracts from the order to exclude the deceased from the list of personnel of the military unit;

 

 

a document that testifies to the causes and circumstances of the death of a military man;

 

 

extracts from the personal file on the composition of the family of a serviceman.

The next step in the above procedure is to write an application for the payment of a one-time allowance at the territorial recruitment and social support center. The above documents, as well as documents confirming the identity and relevant family ties, must be added to the application.

In turn, the territorial recruitment and social support center sends certified copies to the Department of Social Security of the Ministry of Defense, where the Special Commission decides on the appointment of compensation or on the refusal of payments.

If the decision is positive, it must be approved by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine. After that, funds for payment of compensation in the amount of 15 million hryvnias will be transferred to the account of the Command of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and from there to the accounts of the family members of the deceased through the regional TCCs of the Joint Venture.

Why is it necessary to seek legal help?

As you can see, the procedure for receiving payments is multi-stage and requires certain qualifications and knowledge. That is why it is recommended to contact a military lawyer who has experience in resolving such issues. Applying for legal assistance and legal support when making payments will help you feel confident and calm, free you from paper delays and constant worries and worries about deadlines, lack of certain documents, the possibility of quick legislative changes, etc. In addition, a military lawyer is legally entitled to submit lawyer requests, which can greatly facilitate and speed up the procedure for applying to the authorities and receiving payments.

The process of receiving payments is not quick and easy, it can take several months, but can be made easier with the help of qualified lawyers from Prikhodko&Partners who will help you resolve this issue.
