No subsidies: how many households did not pass automatic verification

The Minister of Social Policy Maryna Lazebna said that 200 thousand subsidies did not pass automatic verification due to non-compliance with the criteria that give the right to receive subsidies, Ekonomichna Pravda reports.

“200 thousand households did not pass verification. After the heating season, there were 3 million households, 2.5 were transferred for automatic verification to the Ministry of Finance, and another 400-500 thousand still had to come and confirm their place of residence upon registration,” Lazebna explained.

According to her, these 200 thousand households did not pass verification precisely because they did not meet the criteria that give the right to receive a subsidy.

“It was automatic verification. In other words, the social security authorities transferred (data - ed.) to the Ministry of Finance. ... We, by the way, constantly conducted selectors with the social protection authorities.”

To recap, the draft state budget for 2022 provides UAH 34 billion in subsidies for housing and utility services.

As reported, the Prime Minister explained where the additional 12 billion for subsidies will be found.
