Deputies proposed to increase the period of payment of child benefits24.05.2022
At the end of May, Minister of Labor and Social Protection Maxim Topilin confirmed that by the end of the year the government would increase the size of the child care allowance . And now representatives of one of the factions have submitted a bill to the State Duma for consideration, proposing to increase the period of payment of benefits from one and a half years to three.
Recall that now the allowance for caring for a child up to 1.5 years is 40% of the average monthly earnings. For its calculation, incomes for the previous two full years are taken, but not less than the minimum established by law: 3,065.69 for the first child and 6,131.37 for the second, third and subsequent.
The document notes that such a measure of social support is designed to support young parents, improve demographic indicators in the country and increase the real incomes of the population.
The bill is publicly available in the federal legislative enforcement system. This allows you to monitor the progress of the review of the document. At the time of writing the news, it was registered and sent to the Chairman of the State Duma, as well as to the State Duma Committee on Family, Women and Children.
