The Chairman of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation Alexey Kudrin (pictured) proposed introducing a property qualification for Russians when distributing social support measures.

It is planned to exclude applicants who have a lot of property and real estate from the list of beneficiaries of benefits.

“We need to introduce more targeting, including taking into account the property qualification. If a person has two houses, two cars, then it is clear that he can no longer claim payments", - Izvestia reports.

Kudrin said that if such applicants are excluded from the list of recipients, then there will be people who can be quickly helped by the state to raise their standard of living.

Earlier it was reported that from April 1, when paying child benefits for babies from three to seven years old, a new way of distributing funds was introduced.

According to Kommersant, by decision of the government, instead of a fixed rate of 50% of the subsistence level, three types of benefits were introduced - at the rate of 50%, 75% and 100% of the regional subsistence level.

An additional filter has been introduced for recipients of child benefits, which concerns the property of the applicants. When assigning payments, the amount of property owned by the family is now taken into account, as well as whether citizens have real estate and income from interest on bank deposits. Earlier, benefits "for poverty" from the state could be received, having a whole vehicle fleet and several houses. Employees of social services often complained that citizens in expensive branded clothes, hung with gold, and in luxury cars, came to seek benefits "for poverty". This situation irritated those who really need help.

Now they decided to reduce the opportunity to receive benefits from the state for wealthy owners of real estate and cars.
