Putin’s allowance is no longer automatically renewed

From now on, the temporary procedure for extending the so-called Putin benefit is no longer in effect. It was introduced almost a year ago due to the spread of the coronavirus: payments that expired from April 1 of last year to March 1 of this year were automatically extended without a statement and confirmation of family income.

From now on, the benefit will need to be manually renewed.

The payment, popularly called Putin’s allowance, is awarded to families in which the monthly income is below two living wages. The amount of the allowance is the child’s subsistence minimum – the national average in 2021 is 11,423 rubles, but the amount differs depending on the region where the family lives.

The payment is based on the first and second child up to three years of age. The allowance for the first child is paid from the federal budget, for the second – from the funds of the maternity capital.

To receive a payment, once a year you need to write an application and confirm that the family’s income does not exceed two living wages. If this is not done, then the payment is stopped. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the application could not have been written – the benefit was automatically extended for a year. Now everything will work again according to the old scheme, that is, according to the application.

You can submit it through the MFC or directly to the department that will assign the benefit. If you apply for the first child, you need to contact social protection, for the second – to the Pension Fund at your place of residence.
