The average size of pensions in Ukraine varies by region. In particular, the Opendatabot study found where pensioners receive the highest and lowest amounts of payments.


Here's a look at where the highest and lowest pensions are paid in Ukraine.


In which regions do pensioners receive the lowest payments?


In 2024, 10,516,537 Ukrainians receive pension payments. According to the study, 29.1% of pensioners receive pensions in the amount of UAH 2,000 to 3,000, 23.1% receive from UAH 5,000 to 10,000, and 21% receive up to UAH 4,000 per month. 


At the same time, almost 15% of Ukrainians of retirement age receive pensions in the range of UAH 4,000-5,000, and 11% have pensions of more than UAH 10,000. It is also noted that less than 1% of pensioners (64,601 people) receive less than UAH 2,000.


Summarizing these data, it can be determined that most pensioners receive payments of less than UAH 4,000, and only one third have pensions that are higher than or equal to the average pension.
