Russian families with children will receive a new one-time payment before the New Year holidays. A form for receiving benefits has already appeared on the State Services portal. We explain who is entitled to the New Year’s child benefit and what needs to be done to receive it.
Who is entitled to a new payment
Families with children born from December 18, 2012 to March 30, 2021. That is, pregnant women who are due to give birth by the end of March next year will also receive New Year’s money.
If a child turns eight years old from December 18, 2020 to March 30, 2021, he is also entitled to a payment, ” the officials explained.
Five thousand rubles for each child of the specified age in the family.
A new lump sum payment is assigned based on previously submitted applications. If the family this year received any money for children – monthly allowances for babies up to three years old or one-time “coronavirus” payments for children from 3 to 16 years old – the new package of documents does not need to be carried anywhere. In this case, the New Year’s payment will be sent to the same bank account automatically.
In what cases do you need to write an application for payment
You will need a new statement in two situations. First, the previously specified bank account is closed. You will have to look at the branch of the Pension Fund at your place of residence and apply for a change in the details. New Year’s money for children will go to the new account.
If parents have never received payments for children before or their account details have changed, the application can be submitted until April 1, 2021.
If the family is already receiving other benefits, can it count on “New Year’s” 5,000 rubles?
Yes maybe. The payment does not depend on other social support measures and the family’s income level. You can spend money on anything, the new payment has no purpose.
