Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin approved the requirements for the procedure for assigning and implementing monthly payments to low-income families for children aged three to seven years inclusive. The corresponding document is published on Saturday, April 4, on the website of the Cabinet of Ministers.
“Approve the attached basic requirements for the procedure for assigning and implementing a monthly cash payment for a child aged three to seven years inclusive; an approximate list of documents required for assigning a monthly cash payment for a child aged three to seven years inclusive; a standard application form for assigning a monthly cash payment for a child aged three to seven years inclusive,” the document says.
It also contains a recommendation to the highest officials of the subjects of the Russian Federation to approve the payment procedure and establish, if necessary, requirements for the property security of families to determine their need.
On April 2, Mishustin said that applications for maternity capital will be reviewed electronically.
On January 15, Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered an annual address to the Federal Assembly, during which he announced, in particular, the payment of maternity capital for the first child from January this year and an increase in payments for the birth of a second child by 150 thousand rubles, which will be indexed annually. The President proposed to extend the matkapital program itself at least until the end of 2026.
In addition, the head of state took the initiative to make monthly payments for children aged three to seven years to families whose income does not exceed one living wage per person. At the initial stage, the amount of payments will be 5.5 thousand rubles.
