Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said that the country will introduce a universal allowance for low-income families from January 1, 2023. It will combine several existing payments, writes TASS.
“The new allowance will combine a number of existing social protection measures, including payments that are provided in connection with the birth or adoption of a baby and until they reach three years old,” Mishustin specified.
He also pointed out that the universal allowance will include payments for children from 3 to 7 years old and from 8 to 17. At the same time, the allowance will also be assigned to needy Russian women who are registered in the early stages of pregnancy.
To apply for a universal benefit, citizens need to submit one application without additional information, this can be done through the State Services portal, and personally through the MFC, as well as through the pension and social insurance fund, Mishustin concluded.
