The retirement age increases for women of the 1961 year of birth from April 1, 2021. It is the last increase of age within the changes adopted in 2011. From now on, all Ukrainians will retire at the age of 60.
In other words, women born in the period of time from October 1, 1960, until March 31, 1961, might retire when they reach the age of 59 years and six months. Women who were born after April 1, 1961, might retire only when they reach the age of 60 in 2021.
Moreover, the 2017 pension reform provided a gradual increase in pension insurance records needed for receiving pensions according to age. Starting from 2018, the demand for pension insurance records increased for 12 months until it reaches 35 years in 2028. Currently, Ukrainians with 28 years of the qualifying period might retire at the age of 60. People who do not have a sufficient qualifying period retire at the age of 63.
Meanwhile, people with a qualifying period from 15 up to 18 years might retire at the age of 65 in 2021.
In 2022, Ukrainians will need 29 years track record to retire at the age of 60; 19-20 years – at the age of 63; at least 19 years – at the age of 65.
Thus, in 2028, people will need 35 years track record to retire at the age of 60.
If a pension insurance record makes less than 25 years at the age of 65, a citizen will not get the pension, instead, social aid is provided.
