“The amount of said payment will be one regional living wage per child per month. As before, the payment will go to families with an average per capita income of less than 2 living wages per person with no additional parental ownership or employment requirements. Previously, only parents of second children could use this opportunity,” now any family with maternity capital can issue payments for any child under the age of 3, regardless of the order of birth. Maternity capital payment can be received in addition to a one-time allowance,” said Anton Kotyakov, head of the Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation.
The family can use the maternity capital payment both during the year and, if necessary, within several months. To receive or stop receiving payments from matcapa, it is enough to send an appropriate application to the Social Fund of Russia.
In addition, as of the new year, families will be able to use material funds for their children’s education without the need for an agreement for the provision of paid services. Previously, a copy of the contract had to be personally delivered to the branch of the Pension Fund. Now the Social Fund of Russia itself will receive the necessary information directly from the educational organization. To this end, more than 27,000 information exchange agreements have been signed with educational organizations throughout the country. These are about 1 thousand universities, about 3 thousand colleges and about 24 thousand preschool institutions, circles and sections.
To allocate maternity capital funds for the upbringing of a child, it is enough for parents to submit an application through the portal of public services, indicate in it the educational organization and the details of the contract.
Remember that from August 4, 2022, parents can use certificate funds to pay for kindergartens, circles, sections, study at a university opened by individual entrepreneurs, if they have a license for educational activities, regardless of the form to do business. .
Since 2023, the authority to issue mother capital has been exercised by the Russian Social Fund. The new fund will be responsible for the payment of pensions, benefits and other social support measures, which were previously the responsibility of the Russian Pension Fund and Social Security Fund.
