As the head of the Ministry of Labor Anton Kotyakov explained, in order to speed up the appointment of a single allowance, it was decided to start accepting applications for it in advance, from December 28. “In two days, more than 230,000 applications for a single allowance were received through the State Services portal,” the TASS minister quotes.

The law on the unified benefit will come into force on January 1, 2023, so already on New Year’s holidays, employees of the Social Fund of Russia will begin considering applications. And the first payments to families will begin to arrive in mid-January 2023, Kotyakov noted.

The press service of the Ministry of Labor specified that from January 9, that is, after the New Year holidays, an application for a single allowance can be submitted personally at the client services of the Social Fund of Russia. At the same time, one electronic application will be enough to process payments for all children in the family.

Previously, the network edition “Teacher’s Newspaper” in detail toldhow to apply for a single allowance for public services. To do this, you need to follow five simple steps: register or authorize on the portal and select the service “Unified allowance for children and pregnant women”.

After that, you need to check your personal data, select the requested payment from the list and indicate additional information that may affect the consideration of the application. For example, information about caring for disabled people. You also need to enter data on marital status, children and family composition. And then choose the method of receiving benefits – to a bank account or at the post office.

Recall that the single allowance will combine payments already existing in the country: for pregnant women when registering up to 12 weeks; for the first child up to 3 years; for the third or subsequent children up to 3 years; for children from 3 to 7 years old and from 8 to 17 years old.
