Regional maternity capital in Chukotka extended to 2020
The District Duma of Chukotka amended the law on regional maternity capital for families with three or more children. Its duration has been extended to the end of 2020.
Also, the adopted amendments to the law optimize the mechanism of interaction of the territorial bodies of the Pension Fund with the authorities that have the information necessary to make a decision on issuing a certificate or to refuse.
According to the press service of the regional government, in the opinion of the Chukotka authorities, the extension of the term of the maternity capital should have a positive effect on the increase in the birth rate in the district, and will also allow settling social relations in the provision of social support to large families.
In total, since 2013, the regional maternity capital in Chukotka for the total amount of 82,5 million rubles has been received by 658 women. During the implementation of this measure, the total number of large families in the district has increased by 20,4%. At the end of 2017, the total fertility rate was 2,08. The district takes the fifth place in Russia in terms of the birth rate and the first place in the Far East.
