“Over a lifetime can easily gain three or four years when never officially arranged. This may be a break in connection with childbirth, may be necessary for some time to their health. It can be quite different reasons”, — explained the expert.

The Ministry of social policy has estimated that by 2029, only half (about 55%) of Ukrainians at the age of 60 years can retire. The rest will have to work until they are 63 years old.

An expert in the field of pensions, senior researcher of the Institute of demography and social studies Lydia Tkachenko drew vnimanie as the situation is getting worse by the year. The more Ukrainians accumulate seniority after 2004 – the less their contribution is valued by the state. According to her, 15 years ago was considered a time when people pay pension contributions. That is, a person may not receive a salary — the main thing is to give employment to the personnel Department. But after 2004, the government will begin to count employees only, when they and pay dues, and receive a salary.

In addition, citizens began later to go to work. Previously, young people graduating from universities at the age of 21 and had already had 4-5 years working experience. Now qualified professionals be in the 23-24 years. According to experts, it makes young people too early to think about retirement.

To avoid problems with the pension, the Ukrainians should abandon informal work. This applies to jobs abroad. The employer must pay contributions and taxes, and workers to monitor the implementation of these requirements. Better not to make long breaks. Then there is the chance to retire already at age 60.
