From 1 January 2019, the government plans to begin monetization of subsidies for payment of housing services.
The Ministry of social policy of Ukraine developed a draft resolution on the monetization of subsidies.
This was stated by the head of the Directorate of family and social support Ministry of social policy Vitaly muzichenko.
“We are not changing the procedure of granting subsidies. The recipient must submit a statement to the authority of social protection of the population and give permission to the processing of personal data by the Bank. Then there is the electronic exchange of information between the social security authority, the Ministry of social policy, the Bank and the company that provides the service,” – said muzichenko.
The Ministry of social policy noted that each recipient of subsidies will open a Bank account, presumably in the “Oshchadbank”, which will be credited money. According to Muzychenko, with the account the money will be debited for subsidies.
If the consumer has spent less than foreseen in the existing rules, then the balance upon completion of the heating season translates to the personal account of the consumer. For this purpose it is necessary to visit a Bank and write a statement, explain in the Ministry.
“Consumers will be able to use this money at their discretion. But this is only possible in the absence of debt for the payment of utilities,” – said muzichenko.
