In the capital, the procedure for processing payments for children has been simplified: now parents do not need to provide information about earnings and documents issued by the guardianship and guardianship authorities. All necessary information will be transmitted electronically. As noted by the deputy of the Moscow State Duma, the head of the SPC of children's psychoneurology Tatyana Batysheva, the reduction of bureaucratic formalities will save parents time and effort.
“We know how difficult it is for parents, especially if the family has many children. To make payments, you had to allocate a separate time to receive documents, stand in lines, run around the authorities - and only after that get the required support. This red tape is extremely tiring. The new rules will make life much easier,”Tatyana Batysheva is sure.
The corresponding decree was signed by Sergei Sobyanin at a meeting of the Presidium of the Moscow Government. Now parents do not have to go to the authorities and draw up documents: all the certificates that are needed to receive cash payments for children will be provided without the participation of the applicant in electronic form.
“This is especially important during a pandemic, when any visits to public places need to be reduced to a minimum. Muscovites who draw up paperwork do not have to visit crowded institutions, wait in lines where the risk of infection is high. I believe that such an innovation is very timely,”added Tatyana Batysheva.
As of October 2020, about 1.5 million families live in Moscow, raising more than 2.1 million children. More than 160 thousand of them are large families. Today, there are about 30 types of cash payments that can be received by parents with children. The very first is the pregnancy and childbirth allowance, as well as the childbirth allowance, which women receive. An important support measure is electronic certificates for the purchase of baby food, clothing and equipment, which are received by those in need.
At the end of April, payments of monthly allowances for children from 3 to 7 years old in low-income families were raised to 7613 rubles. Funds for an additional measure of support for families with children were allocated within the framework of the state program "Social support for residents of the city of Moscow" from the city budget.
