In 2017, the territorial administrations of the Pension fund of the Russian Federation in the cities and districts of the Krasnodar Region (FIU) issued about 27 thousand state certificates for maternal capital. In general, the number of applications for obtaining a mother's certificate exceeded 310 thousand during the whole period of the program.
The most popular area of expenditure of maternal capital remains the improvement of housing conditions. Since the beginning of the program of the maternal capital due to its funds, housing conditions have improved 178 thousand Kuban families. Of these, 85 thousand families have partially or fully paided the housing loans. More than 93 thousand families have improved their housing conditions without attracting credit funds.
In addition to this, the FIU has received more than 15,000 applications for the education of children, 84 applications for the transfer of maternal capital to the mother's cumulative pension and one application for social adaptation and integration into the Society of disabled children.
It is important to note that a number of significant additions have been made to the maternal capital programme since 2018.
First, from 1 January the pension fund accepts applications from needy families to receive monthly payments from the mother capital. Only those families in need, in which the second child is born or will be adopted after 1 January 2018, are paid.
To understand whether a family has the right to pay, it is necessary to take the total income of the family in the last 12 calendar months, divide it by 12, and then divide by the number of family members, including the born second child. If the received value is less than 1.5-the subsistence minimum of the able-bodied citizen in the region of residence of the family (in Krasnodar territory less than 16711.5 rubles), it is possible to go to pension fund and to apply for monthly payment.
The amount of payment also depends on the region-it is equal to the subsistence minimum for children, which is established in the subject of RF for the second quarter of the previous year (in Krasnodar Krai 9845 rubles). More details on the terms of receiving this payment can be found in the relevant section of the Pension Fund website.
Secondly, a three-year moratorium on the disposal of maternal capital for the preschool education of children has been lifted.
Finally, the possibility of entering the maternal capital programme has been extended until 31 December 2021. That is, to obtain the right to a mother's capital it is necessary that the child who gives the right to the certificate was born or was adopted before December 31, 2021. At the same time, the receipt of the certificate and the disposal of its funds are not limited.
The size of the maternal capital in 2018 is 453, 000. Rubles.
