“Some time ago, the issue of payments from one and a half to three years for a child, if the mother is on maternity leave to care for the child, was very acute on our agenda. Then the allowance was 50 rubles. per month, this amount was approved by Boris Yeltsin. This fact caused a storm of questions, and there were several proposals to increase it from one and a half to three years, so that these funds would also be paid from the social insurance fund, ”the source explained.
Nilov stressed that the issue of the need for a nursery has not yet been fully resolved in the country, this is still relevant to this day.

The LDPR faction has repeatedly raised this issue at a meeting with the Prime Minister. As a result, a formula was found, according to which the criteria of need were determined, and if the per capita income was less than two subsistence minimum per person, that is, the family is recognized as needy, then in this case one subsistence level is also paid at the age of one and a half to three years. minimum for a child, ”the deputy said.

“Now the budgetary process is underway and all funds for the social sphere, which are provided for by law, are laid for next year. As the chairman of the social committee and as a representative of the LDPR faction, I support any additional support measures, especially if they concern families with children, and even more so – needy families. This is support for the institution of the family, the institution of motherhood, childhood, increasing family income, ”the parliamentarian said.
According to Nilov, the money is small, but it’s better than nothing. The deputy clarified that the final amount of the benefit will depend on the specific region, because each has its own subsistence minimum, but we are talking about an amount of up to 5.5 thousand rubles.
