State limited social benefits for members of families of lost ATO combatants

“My father died because of an illness caused by military service. It is specified in the medical certificate. Having collected a lot of documents, my mother and I managed to receive the certificates of members of the family of the fallen soldier and to receive a 50% discount on the utility bills. The mother's certificate is valid for life time or until she gets married for the second time. The mine is valid until my majority. But since July of this year it’s not valid. I re-read the Law “About the Status of Veterans of War, a Guarantee of Their Social Protection” that affirms the right, but didn't find any changes. Please, explain why the benefits have been abolished. On the basis of what normative legal act?” This is the question Olena asked in a chat room of “Legal Space”.

Two certificates for one lost

To use the right to preferential journey in long-distance transport parents of lost ATO participant have to receive two certificates. For under one law members of families of lost soldiers have the right to preferential journey and under another one - no.

Procedure of granting ATO combatant status is simplified

Until recently the procedure of issuing certificates of combatants participating in ATO was too prolonged. ATO participants collected necessary papers and expected obtaining the document for months. Though receiving the status of ATO combatant remains rather difficult, defenders have the legitimate right to avoid red tape. In particular, since May 2015 the centralized submission of documents to military registration and enlistment offices is provided - for consideration by the relevant commissions created at them.
