In Russia, they want to limit the payment of maternity capital for the first-born child to the age of the mother, up to 25-30 years, or transfer the emphasis of providing payments to the second child. This was reported by the First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Family, Women and Children Tatyana Butskaya.
“The maternity capital program may be significantly adjusted when it is extended after 2026. A number of State Duma deputies propose to limit the payment of payments for the first-born child to the age of the mother, up to 25-30 years, or to shift the emphasis of providing payments to the second child,” they write about this with reference to Butskaya’s words “News” Deputies addressed the government of the Russian Federation with a corresponding request.
Limiting the age for receiving maternity capital would be a mistake. In Russia, the average age of women giving birth to their first child is growing. This is a normal demographic trend, says Vladimir Shchekin, developer of the RDD residential cluster. Expectant mothers want to first strengthen their professional status, and only then take responsibility for their children. The circumstances that force you to postpone the birth of a child are obviously stronger than the desire to receive maternity capital.
Previously, in Russia they wanted to tighten the conditions for purchasing housing with capital capital. The innovation is aimed at combating fraudulent schemes. The guardianship and trusteeship authorities will be required to give consent to any purchase, according to deputies of the State Duma Committee on Construction and Housing and Communal Services.
