The media found out the average amount of the allowance.
The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin signed the federal law “On universal benefits for pregnant women and citizens with children ”. The goal is to create a unified social support system for Russian families with children and reduce the risk of poverty in this category of society.
According to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” with reference to the document, the new unified benefit, which can be obtained by writing a statement about the need for support, will cover about 10 million recipients.
Now one payment will include benefits that are given to women who are registered as pregnant up to 12 weeks and monthly child benefits. Instead, the state will pay a monthly allowance in connection with the birth and upbringing of a child.
If there are several children under 17 in the family, the allowance will be assigned to each of them separately. The allowance will be paid to the family from the moment the child is born. Recipients must be Russians who have citizenship and permanent residence in the Russian Federation.
It is reported that the law will come into force on January 1 next year. The amount of the benefit depends on the regional subsistence minimum and also amounts to 50, 75 or 100% of it.
In addition, payments will be received by families whose income per person is below the regional subsistence minimum at the place of residence or stay. The need assessment will be carried out on a comprehensive basis, taking into account family income, property security and labor potential.
Also, families with an income below PM per person will be able to make a monthly payment at the expense of the mother capital, without taking into account the number of children, even if there is no second child in the family.
The Ministry of Labor clarifies that the rules for the appointment of payments will be the same as for child benefits for toddlers 3 – 8 years and 8 – 17 years.
As for the amount of the allowance, it will be 50, 75 or 100% of the regional PM for children. However, the authors took into account the level of per capita family income and other indicators. The average size, the media notes, will be 7,000, 10,500 and 14,000 rubles.
