The parent capital it will be possible to spend for disabled children

The government suggests to introduce in the law «About additional measures of the state support of the families having children» the amendments, allowing to spend the matkapital on providing the disabled child, his rehabilitation or the necessary goods and services for sick children.

«Parents of disabled children not always presume to get to themselves means of rehabilitation of the disabled child, after all it is big expenses — purchase of scarce medicines, means, payment of advisers, medical care  etc. — have reported to the Izvestiya newspaper in the Ministry of Labour. — It will give the chance to the families which are bringing up disabled children, to use means of the parent capital irrespective of age of the child and  without waiting executions to the child of three years as it is regulated by existing rules».

The similar offer was already brought in the State Duma, but  has not passed the first reading, and also has not been approved by Ministry of Health.

Let’s remind that now the matkapital can be spent only for improvement of living conditions of a family, education of the child and labour pension of mother. It is paid to families at the birth or adoption of the second or subsequent child. Recently the program has been prolonged prolonged to the 2025th. Today payment makes 429 408 rubles.
