Happy mothers of two children have the full right to state aid, to the so-called maternal capital. This is a one-time grant equivalent to a cash amount of 453,000 rubles, which is not cashed, but can be spent on the needs of the whole family. In Russia, this kind of help has already been used by many mothers, but for those who are just planning the birth of a second child, we will tell in more detail what kind of subsidy and how to get it.
What does the certificate for maternity capital look like and where is it issued?
Family capital is a special type of aid that does not involve obtaining cash. Instead of money, parents receive a special certificate - a two-sided document that grants the right to dispose of the amount allocated by the state. You can get the subsidy once, and the mother has the right to decide when she should use the allocated means: after the birth of the 2nd baby or the subsequent one, if such is planned. But, as a rule, with the receipt of the certificate for the parent capital, the parents do not delay, but on the contrary, they try to arrange the grant almost immediately after the birth of the crumbs. To do this, they apply to the nearest branch of the Pension Fund, fill out a special application and provide such documents:
- Passport of the parent submitting the application.
- Certificates of the birth of children.
- Insurance pension certificates of children and the applicant.
The list of documents can be supplemented: it all depends on who exactly states the right to receive a certificate for maternity capital and for what reasons. So, the law stipulates that adoptive parents and fathers can apply for a pleasant bonus from the state in cases where the mother has died or was deprived of the right to a child. Accordingly, when submitting an application, additional supporting documents (death certificate, de-registration and adoption document) are required.
When can I get a certificate for maternity capital?
In this matter, the state is more than loyal - at any time since the birth of the baby, the parents have the right to declare the right to subsidize. However, the use of funds is allowed only after the crumb celebrates its third birthday. The only exception is when the family needs to repay a mortgage loan for housing. After the submission of documents and the application, the Pension Fund is given a one-month period for the adoption of the relevant decision, of which the applicant is notified within 5 days.
