Maternity capital increases annually at the rate of inflation. So, in 2024 it will be increased to about 631 thousand rubles for the first child. By 2026, according to preliminary calculations, it may exceed one million rubles. The deputy told Lenta.ru about this State Duma Svetlana Bessarab.
“Maternity capital, in accordance with Russian legislation, increases annually by a percentage of the real inflation rate. That is, this is not just a percentage increase in prices for apartments, but an increase in prices for goods and services according to data Rosstat. So, from February 1, 2024, it will be increased to almost 631 million rubles for the first child and a little more than 834 thousand for the second child,” the politician said.
In addition, in 2026, based on the forecast, the maternity capital for the first child, according to Bessarab, may exceed 1 million rubles.
“I would also like to remind you that families with many children have the opportunity to repay a mortgage loan in the amount of 450 thousand rubles. Maybe it would make sense to increase this payment, but so far there is no talk of this,” the deputy added.
Previously, head of the State Duma Committee on Family, Women and Children Nina Ostanina suggested provide parents of the fifth child in the family with free housing. It is also necessary to introduce discounts on housing and communal services for large families, introduce social housing for them and introduce preferential visits to cultural institutions for children from large families, the deputy added.https://musicnewsfirst.com/
