 Massive divorce in Russia to receive benefits

< p>

In Russia, families began to divorce for the sake of receiving social benefits, writes «Parliamentskaya Gazeta». Olga Samarina, director of the Accounts Chamber department, drew attention to this practice.

The official explained that when a family divorces, each spouse's average per capita income changes. After that, they apply for a single allowance.
“We traveled to the regions and saw how a family submits an application to the relevant authorities and they are denied benefits. They get divorced, apply for the second time, and they approve this application and the allowance is assigned,” the official said.

Previously, a law on a single allowance in connection with the birth and upbringing of a child was signed. The payment will be assigned to each child in the family until they reach the age of 17, pregnant. The law will come into force on January 1, 2023. To assign a payment, the average per capita income in a family per person should not exceed the subsistence minimum established in the region.
