The real salary may increase by 8.5% next year. Olena Korobkova, the head of the board of the “League of Banks of Ukraine”, told about this at the press conference.
” If we look at the budget for next year, which has been approved, it provides that the minimum wage will increase to 8 thousand hryvnias after two increases, which is also a positive trend. But, according to the government's estimates, the average salary will amount to almost 22 thousand hryvnias, that is, the real salary will increase by 8.5%, taking into account our inflation,” Korobkova is quoted by the publication “Public. News”.
According to the specialist, a similar situation will occur with pensions in 2024.
According to the Opendatabot platform, in the third quarter of this year, the average pension in Ukraine amounted to 5,350 hryvnias. However, in eight regions it was significantly higher than the national average, in particular in Kyiv – 7,219 hryvnias. Pensioners in Ternopil Oblast receive the lowest pension – 4,041 hryvnias.
The government plans to introduce a point-based pension calculation system starting next year.
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine previously approved the state budget for 2024. According to the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmyhal, almost 50% of the expenditures will go to defense and security.
The law also provides for the indexation of pensions, an increase in the minimum wage, and an increase in spending on education and medicine by more than UAH 20 billion.
More than UAH 40 billion will be allocated to support business.
