The article examines the features of the functioning of the system of social protection of persons with disabilities in Ukraine. The basic normative-legal bases of realization of the corresponding direction of social policy and a modern condition of its financing are considered. The possibility of changing the practice of compensatory costs for the policy of promoting the employment of persons with disabilities has been identified. The analysis of actual problems of social protection of invalids in Ukraine is carried out and their reasons are revealed. It is emphasized that now it is expedient to improve the legal regulation of this type of social protection, and one of the important factors in achieving this goal is the normative consolidation of state social assistance to these categories of persons, its financing and timely payment. The subjects of policy implementation in this area have been identified. Ways to overcome problems at the level of different actors are suggested.
