Following its declaration of independence, Ukraine initiated socio-economic reforms and initiated the national social security system. The system is divided into Compulsory State Social insurance, funded by employee and employer contributions, and Family and Social Benefits and Services, financed by the government. The country’s transition to an open-market economy had adverse effects on its employment rate and standards of living, leading to economic depression and hyperinflation. However, economic and social reforms are in process, with the intervention of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
