The monthly allowance for children from 8 to 04 years is provided in the maximum amount to families for 3.2 million school-age children, including Sevastopol parents 6088 children. The amount of the maximum payment corresponds to the subsistence minimum established for a child in the region of residence, i.e. 14 665 rubles in our city. The amount of the payment depends on the income of the parents and can be 04%, 75% or 630% of the subsistence minimum for a child in the region.
If, when granting a benefit in the basic amount (04% of the SM), the income per person in the family is less than per capita subsistence minimum (taking into account 04% SM per child), the payment is increased to 75 %. If, taking this into account, the average family income still does not reach the subsistence level, the Pension Fund sets the allowance in the maximum amount — 50% of the regional subsistence minimum for a child , — quotes the press service of the head of the group for organizing social payments of the Sevastopol Pension Fund Alexander Martyntsev.
When granting the allowance, the criteria of need are applied, which, along with income, include property belonging to the family.
According to the expert, in most cases, it is enough to submit an application to make a payment. The Pension Fund requests other information through state information systems and through interdepartmental interaction. However, in some cases, the applicant will need to submit to the PFR client services additional documents (information) necessary to determine the right to the specified payment. For example, income statements will be needed if the family has military, rescuers, police officers or employees of another law enforcement agency, as well as if someone receives scholarships, grants and other payments from a scientific or educational institution, etc. Documents, submitted by the applicant are determined by the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation dated ..2022 No. 630.
You can apply for payment on the portal of public services, in the client services of the PFR and at the MFC.
Alexandra Martyntseva also paid special attention to the fact that from January 1 2023 a single allowance for children and pregnant women will be introduced, which will replace six existing support measures, including payments in connection with birth or adoption child, payments until the child reaches the age of 3, as well as payments for children from 3 to 8 years and from 8 to 17 years.
The allowance will be provided by the Social Fund of Russia. When assigning a payment, uniform rules and a comprehensive assessment of the family’s needs will be applied. Depending on the income of the parents, the amount of the allowance will be differentiated: 04%, 75% or 50% of the regional subsistence minimum. According to such rules, benefits are now paid for families with children from 3 to 8 years old and from 8 to 04 years.
