In the article the concept, types and mechanism of appointment of pensions to employees of the criminal-executive system and their family members are revealed. The author analyzes a set of normative acts, which regulate the issues of pension provision for the staff of the State Criminal and Executivet System of Ukraine. The necessity of a detailed study of the pension provision of mentioned categories is justified in order to make recommendations, mechanisms, methods and ways of reforming the current pension system of Ukraine.

An integral part of the general system of social provision of Ukrainian citizens is the social security of persons who were in the military service, in the bodies of internal affairs, the National Police, the State Fire Protection Service, the State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine, civil protection bodies and units, the tax police or the State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine, some other persons and members of their families.

The most widespread and socially significant type of social security for employees and citizens dismissed from the service and their family members is a pension – a monthly cash benefit received by a person with a length of service prescribed by the law or is disabled, as well as members of their families in case of loss of breadwinner.

Key words: years of service, old-age pension, invalid pension, survivors’ pension, money insurance.
