Procedure for payment of other benefits in connection with maternity
Child benefits are divided into one-time and periodic.
1. One-time benefit for women registered in medical institutions in the early stages of pregnancy → One-time benefit for the birth of a child.
The amount of the benefit is set annually, taking into account indexation and does not depend on the earnings of the insured person
2. Maternity benefit → Monthly allowance for child care until the child reaches the age of one and a half years.
The benefit is calculated based on the average earnings of the insured person, calculated for two calendar years preceding the year of the insured event.
Important! To calculate benefits, only earnings on which contributions to the Social Insurance Fund were calculated! If an employee receives part of their salary “in an envelope,” benefits will be minimal. Find out also what documents are needed to apply for child benefits.
