FIU and Ombudsmen for Children agree on cooperation to protect children's rights
Pension Fund offices throughout the country have entered into agreements with children’s rights ombudsmen to develop cooperation and more effectively provide support measures to families with children.
Within the framework of cooperation, it is planned to improve interaction to protect the interests of children in matters of social security. The departments of the fund, together with the commissioners, will consider the appeals of parents and discuss problems related to the implementation of payments.
According to Sergei Chirkov, Deputy Chairman of the PFR Board, joint projects will also be aimed at legal education and raising awareness of families with children about social support measures.
Cooperation will not only help improve the work of the Pension Fund in matters of social security for children, but will also increase the awareness of families about the support measures they are entitled to, — Sergey Chirkov notes.
