The Vologda branch of the Pension Fund reminds Vologda residents that the maternity capital program has been expanded since the beginning of 2018. This decision was made at the state level to support Russian families with children. In particular, the possibilities of using state support funds immediately after the birth or adoption of a second child have been expanded. More detailed information "Vologda.RF" has prepared with the help of specialists of the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation in the Vologda region.
Monthly payment from maternity capital
Families with an income of less than 17,861 rubles (1.5 times the subsistence minimum of the working-age population for the 2nd quarter of 2017) per person per month, in which the second child was born in the period from January 1, 2018, were entitled to a monthly payment from maternity capital. In the Vologda Oblast, it is 10,732 rubles (the cost of living for a child for the 2nd quarter of 2017).
You can apply for a monthly payment at any time within one and a half years from the date of the birth of your second child. If you apply in the first six months, the payment will be established from the date of birth of the child, if later - from the date of submission of the application.
The monthly payment is set for 12 months. The family can then reapply and receive money until the child turns 1.5 years old.
Preschool education, childcare and supervision
Since 2018, families can send maternity capital to preschool education of children almost immediately after the birth of a child, without waiting for his third year, as it was before. MSC funds can be used to pay for kindergarten (including private), as well as childcare and childcare services. At the same time, the selected organizations must be licensed to provide the relevant services.
The direction of the MSC on the social adaptation of disabled children
Since 2018, families who wish to send maternity capital to purchase goods or services for a disabled child do not need to take a referral for a medical and social examination at a polyclinic and undergo a re-examination at the ITU bureau, as it was before. Thus, the procedure for the use of MSC funds for social adaptation and integration of disabled children into society has been significantly simplified.
Extension of the maternity capital program
The possibility of joining the maternity capital program has been extended until December 31, 2021. To be eligible for MSC funds, the second or subsequent child must be born or adopted by December 31, 2021. At the same time, the very receipt of the certificate and the disposal of its funds are not limited by time. The size of maternity capital in 2018 is 453 thousand 26 rubles.
Russian families, in which a second or third child will appear in the period from 2018 to 2022, will be able to conclude a loan agreement at a preferential rate of 6% per annum in order to improve their living conditions. Preferential mortgages can also be repaid by means of maternity capital. It is not necessary to wait until the child is three years old.
