He sent an appeal on this issue to the head of the Ministry of Labor Anton Kotyakov. In a document cited by RT, the deputy explained that he was referring to the purchase of said goods for children. They are often expensive.
Vlasov noted that, according to the Constitution, the authorities must create conditions for the all-round, including physical, development of children.
Deputies had many ideas on how to use these funds. Thus, the head of the State Duma Committee on the Family, Women and Children, Nina Ostanina (KPRF), earlier proposed to allow families to use maternity capital to buy a Russian car.
There was also a proposal to pay for housing and communal services at the expense of the capital mother; such an initiative was made by the first deputy chairman of the State Duma Education Committee Yana Lantratova (SRZP).
In 2023, the amount of the maternity capital at the birth of the first child amounted to 589.5 thousand rubles, the second child – 779 thousand rubles. If the parents have already received maternal capital for their first child, then – 189.5 thousand rubles.
One of the most popular ways to use the certificate is to improve housing conditions: build and buy a house, an apartment, and pay a mortgage. The funds can also pay for the education of any child in the family. The money can also be used to form the funded part of the mother’s pension. You can also spend principal in one monthly payment if your average per capita income is no more than two living wages.
