More than two million people applied for a payment of 10 thousand rubles per child
During the day, more than two million Russians left an application for the payment of 10 thousand rubles intended for a child, said Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. Funds can be received by families with children from three to 16 years old.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced such a measure of support. About 27 million Russian families will be able to count on support. Payments will begin on June 1.
To submit an application, a special service has been created on the State Service portal. A few hours after the Ministry of Communications announced its launch, the service was unavailable - the State Service website collapsed from a huge number of simultaneous requests.
We recall that the head of state has doubled the minimum childcare allowance for non-working citizens. Now it is 6.75 thousand rubles. Also, those families with children in which the income per person is below the subsistence minimum is paid payments of 5.5 thousand rubles a month not from July 1, but from June 1.
