Denys Uliutin: Verification Provides Social Benefit Payments to those Citizens who Truly Need it

Verification of social benefit payments is a comparison of information submitted by citizens which affects the determination of their right to receive social benefit payments, with the relevant information stored in state registers. It is aimed at ensuring that the final recipients of social benefit payments are those citizens who truly need it.

This was announced by Deputy Minister of Finance Denys Uliutin in the op-ed for the portal "Today".

"According to the Law  "On verification and monitoring of social benefit payments" there are three types of verification:

  • current verification;
  • retrospective verification;
  • preventive verification.

At the moment the main type is the current verification. It is used to verify the data of citizens when providing them with public payments: subsidies, benefits, pensions, insurance payments, unemployment benefits, etc. Preventive verification is starting to take effect this year. It will be used for online check of the data of citizens when they apply for a state social payment", Denys Uliutin noted.

The First Deputy also spoke about the mechanism of verification, which is based on a specially developed and implemented by the Ministry of Finance informational-analytical platform:

"The architecture of such a platform is based on modern technologies and can provide simultaneous processing of 3.5 thousand requests for verification of information. Such capabilities allow using this software by public authorities in the appointment of payments, while significantly saving time for the adoption of the relevant decision".

In addition, Denys Uliutin denied that the recipient would have to open access to his bank accounts during data verification:

"Additional information about deposits and other savings in banks will be required only for verification of benefits whose assignment is directly affected by the financial situation of the household (e.g., subsidies and allowances for low-income families)".
