Child benefits: what payments should you expect in 2021

The birth of a child is associated with inevitable expenses, so the legislator has provided, albeit small, monetary assistance for parents. They are paid a lump sum benefit upon the birth of a child in 2021. But not everyone knows where to go for an appointment, what size is relevant today, and when the funds should be provided.

Benefits for registering in early pregnancy

This payment is due to those who contacted an antenatal clinic with a pregnancy period of up to 12 weeks. Federal Law of May 19, 1995 N 81-FZ.
This is how the state encourages expectant mothers to begin medical monitoring of their child as early as possible. The following may qualify for this benefit:

  • women working under an employment contract;
  • full-time students;
  • contract military personnel;
  • entrepreneurs, lawyers, notaries who pay contributions to the Social Insurance Fund;
  • unemployed people dismissed during the liquidation of the company during the last 12 months (if they are registered at the labor exchange).

The money will be transferred along with maternity benefits. To receive payments, you need to confirm your registration with the antenatal clinic. You provide such a certificate along with a package of documents for maternity benefits at the place of work, service, or study. Entrepreneurs apply directly to the Social Insurance Fund, and those dismissed due to the liquidation of an organization - to the social security authorities.

From February 2021, the benefit is 708.23 rubles. For the territories of the Far North and equivalent areas, increasing coefficients apply Information letter of the Department for Pensions of the Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation dated 06/09/2003 N 1199‑16. For example, in Murmansk a woman will receive 1,274.81 rubles, and in the Kuril Islands - 1,416.46 rubles.

In addition, regions can introduce their own support measures. So, if a pregnant woman registers in St. Petersburg with a pregnancy period of up to 20 weeks, she will receive 32,339 rubles for the first child, 43,122 rubles for the second, 53,900 rubles for the third and subsequent ones.

How to arrange payments for the birth of a 3rd child 100,000 rubles

Stages of the application process:

  • obtaining a certificate;
  • purposes for spending funds.

Each stage requires different packages of documents.

To submit an application, you need to prepare documents and their photocopies. Then, transfer it to the social protection unit, where an application is drawn up with the help of an employee. The application is processed within 10 days, after which the family receives either a positive response or a negative response with an explanation.

Maternity benefit

These payments accompany maternity leave. They are only available to mothers and are designed to compensate for the loss of income during a forced break from work. Accordingly, the same categories of women can receive benefits as when registering in early pregnancy. The unemployed, if they were fired not due to the liquidation of the organization, are not entitled to payments.

Female students and military personnel will receive payments in the amount of a scholarship or allowance. For those working under an employment contract, the amount of benefits is calculated using the formula:

PPBiR = income 2 years before maternity leave ÷ 730 or 731 days × number of days of maternity leave.

In this case, payments cannot exceed 340,795 rubles and be lower than 58,878 rubles if maternity leave lasts 140 days. This is the usual duration, but it can increase - for example, with multiple pregnancies. The benefit is also available to mothers who have adopted a baby under three months old. They receive payments in 70 days.

Entrepreneurs pay contributions based on the minimum wage. This means that child benefits will be calculated according to the same indicator. Mothers who were fired during the liquidation of the organization will receive 708.23 Federal Law of May 19, 1995 N 81-FZ ruble. Some regions, for example Moscow On social support for families with children in the city of Moscow, are ready to support them additionally.

To receive payments, you need to apply with a sick leave certificate at your place of work or with a certificate from the antenatal clinic at your place of service or study. Entrepreneurs apply directly to the Social Insurance Fund.

Monthly allowance for a child aged three to seven years

This is a relatively new type of support that appeared in 2020. Low-income parents who have children from three to seven years old inclusive can apply for it according to Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of March 31, 2021 N 384. The amount of payments depends on the financial situation of the family and is:

  • 50% of the subsistence level for children in the region, if the average income per person in a family is below the subsistence level in the region;
  • 75% - if, even taking into account the 50% payment, the average per capita income does not reach the subsistence level;
  • 100% - if this does not happen even with a payment of 75%.

When assessing the family’s financial situation, cash receipts for the 12 months preceding the four months before the application are taken into account. That is, if you submit an application in July 2021, then income from February 2021 to February 2021 will be included in the calculation. At the same time, the family must have at least some income. If she lives only on state subsidies without a good reason, child benefits may not be awarded.

You can also lose your right to payments if the family has too much property. For example, owners of several apartments or cars may not be considered needy.

To receive benefits, you need to contact the social security authorities in person, through the multifunctional one.
