The ministry clarified that from January 2023, pregnant women and families with children under 17 who need support can receive a single allowance every month. It replaced five previous support measures for low-income families: monthly payments for the first and third child under 3 years old, for children from 3 to 8 years old and children from 8 to 17 years old, as well as a monthly payment for pregnancy.

– Previously, each of these benefits was assigned according to its own rules and paid by different departments. The new allowance is established according to uniform rules, and one application can be submitted for all children. The Social Fund assigns a single benefit in the format of the social treasury – in order to receive payments to parents or expectant mothers, as a rule, it is enough to submit an application through the State Services portal. Agree, it’s convenient, – said Nikolay Dedyurin, head of the Social Fund department.

One of the conditions for the appointment of a single allowance is the level of security: the income for each family member should not exceed the subsistence level per capita in the region. Children and parents must be citizens of the Russian Federation and permanently reside in Russia. When assigning a payment, a comprehensive assessment of the income and property of the family is applied, and the employment of parents is also taken into account.

– The calculation period for which family income is assessed is 12 months, but the countdown begins one month before the date of application. That is: if a family submits an application in May, then incomes are estimated from April 2022 to March 2023,” explained Irina Prudnikova, deputy head of the Social Fund department.

The first transfer of funds occurs within five working days after the decision on the appointment of a single allowance. In the future, funds are paid in the current month for the previous one, for example: in May – for April, in June – for May, etc. Through credit organizations, a single allowance is transferred on the 3rd day of each month. If the payment date falls on a weekend or holiday, the transfer is made on the previous business day. Families can also receive a single allowance through post offices. In this case, the allowance is paid from the 3rd to the 25th day of the month according to the schedule, which can be found in your post office.
