Who has the right to claim the governor's hundred thousand for 3 children

The requirements for obtaining in different regions are different. There is invariably one requirement for the applicant, this can be one of the parents:

  • mother who gave birth to (adopted) the third and subsequent children;
  • father, if he is the only parent (the child’s mother has died or been deprived of parental rights, which is documented).

To obtain a regional MK, you will need to prove that the total family income does not exceed two subsistence minimums for each member, that is, the payment is issued only to low-income families. Guardians, even legally recognized ones, are not eligible.

Conditions for receiving regional maternity capital

To receive maternity capital for a third child, there are two conditions that are relevant for each subject:

  • Registration and residence of the applicant in the region where the application is submitted.
  • Availability of Russian citizenship.

In different regions there may be differences in terms of permanent residence - from 1 to 10 years. If the child is stillborn, the parents lose the right to receive MK. When the previous one dies, the third one is taken into account for the total number of children. In the Sakhalin region, MK is paid if the mother’s age is from 19 to 25 years; in the Republic of Udmurtia, one of the parents must be no more than 35 years old.

The amount of maternity capital for the third child in 2021

Families with children can only receive the certificate once. In case of full use of MK funds after the birth of the second child, the birth of the third baby is not the basis for issuing benefits. But the amount of financial support provided under the program is determined by the number of minor family members.

On a note! Maternity capital for 1 child in 2021

Thus, this year parliamentarians set the following values:

  • for the firstborn - 466,617 rubles;
  • for the second child - 616,617 rubles, provided that the first child is under 18 years of age;
  • for the third child - 616,617 rubles under the same conditions.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation, in 2021 maternity capital will be indexed by 3.7%, which in monetary terms will be 22,815 rubles. Thus, the amount of MK will increase to 483,882 rubles for the first-born and to 639,432 rubles for the second child. The parents of the third child will also receive government assistance, but its amount has not yet been announced.


! In total, the government plans to allocate more than 400 billion rubles to pay maternity capital, and about 1.2 million families with children will be able to take advantage of state assistance.

How to apply for the governor's 100,000 rubles for the 3rd child

For registration you will need to collect the following package of documents:

  • statement of a unified format;
  • passport;
  • birth certificates of all children;
  • details of the bank account to which funds need to be transferred;
  • a certificate of wages and other income for the last three months of all family members;
  • marriage certificate (provided in cases where the applicant’s surname is different from the child’s surname).

If one or more children are adopted, you will need to provide the appropriate documentation. The application is reviewed from 10 to 30 days, then the Pension Fund decides to approve or refuse the allocation of funds.

Refusal occurs in the following cases:

  • The applicant does not meet the requirements. You should clarify what evidence of eligibility is required and provide it.
  • Insufficient package of documents.

The second package of documents is collected for use by MK. These may be receipts for previously purchased goods and services included in the list of permitted uses of MK, or contracts concluded with suppliers.

The decision to issue or refuse maternity capital is made by the Social Protection Fund after reviewing the submitted documents. You can submit them in one of four ways:

  1. Directly to the FSS.
  2. Through MFC.
  3. By mail.
  4. Through State Services.

The time frame for obtaining a document varies - it can be issued either from the moment of birth until the child is 6 months old, or until the child reaches 18 years of age. To clarify the deadlines that apply in the region of residence, you should use the official information portals of the subject.

The terms of permitted use of funds differ and can be established within six months from the date of receipt of the certificate and after the child reaches the age of 3 years.

Upon approval, a certificate may be issued, printed on special paper with the appropriate seals and signatures. Sometimes no documents are issued, they only verbally inform that a positive decision has been made.

If you want to spend funds from a regional MK, you need to submit documents reflecting the intended use in the FSS; the money will either be transferred to the account of the MK recipient or the organization from which the purchase is made.

Who can receive a certificate

Only families that meet the following requirements can apply for a certificate in the event of the birth of a third child:

  • after the birth of the second baby, the right to MK was not realized;
  • all family members, including minors, have Russian citizenship;
  • the child was born no earlier than the start of the program (2007).

As a rule, the certificate is issued in the name of the mother, but in some cases the father can also dispose of the family capital:

  • the woman is deprived of parental rights;
  • due to the death of the child's mother.

What can you spend it on?

Despite the differences in the requirements for the targeted use of regional MK funds, the main points remain the same:

  • Improving housing conditions (purchasing larger housing, building new housing, making maternity capital as a down payment when purchasing housing with a mortgage).
  • Payment for educational institutions.
  • Treatment of a child.
  • Purchase of a car (exclusively passenger car).
  • Improving living conditions (gas supply to existing housing, arrangement of water supply and sewerage systems).
  • Compensation for expenses aimed at improving the lives of disabled children.

Some entities provide maternity capital funds directly to the recipient’s bank account and do not impose requirements for the intended use.

These include:

  • Vologda Region;
  • Mari El Republic;
  • Chuvashia;
  • Volgograd region;
  • Adygea.

In the Magadan Region, it is possible to spend part of the funds received (40,000 rubles) for any purpose; in the Primorsky Territory, this amount is 10% of the MK. In Tatarstan, the amount can only be used to repay a social mortgage.

Benefits for low-income Russians with a third and subsequent children

As part of regional support, recipients can count on benefits when paying for utilities. The exact list of preferential conditions in each region is different, so it is better to check separately, as well as the amount of benefits for a young child.

Low-income citizens can also count on receiving free legal assistance through the courts or other government agencies. There are lending programs based on a preferential algorithm. If they want to get a plot of land, such families are put out of line.


Can it be used in another region?

Since the payment of the regional MK is made from the corresponding budget, the funds can only be spent within the region of residence. This rule applies not only to the purchase of housing, but also to vehicles and training.

Regional maternity capital for a third child is an additional payment to federal funds from the budget of the region of residence. Since information about it is rarely disclosed in the media, you should independently study the regulations in this area on the regional portal, or by contacting the Social Protection Fund.

Registration of low-income family status for payments in 2020

Families with low incomes do not remain without the attention of the state when their third child reaches the age of 3. To maintain family well-being, such parents can count on a new format of benefits that affects children aged 3 to 7 years. Moreover, if there are several such children in a family, then money is paid for each of them.

Due to the economic consequences of the prolonged quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic, experts do not rule out an increase in the number of applications submitted to determine the status of a low-income family.

To obtain this status, you need to pass inspection by regulatory authorities, since not only official salary indicators will be taken into account, but also other sources of income such as interest on deposits.

Schematically, benefits for the poor can be divided into 2 categories:

  • federal;
  • regional.

In the case of federal offers, you can expect to receive an exemption from having to pay income taxes. Citizens can also apply for scholarships when it comes to entering higher education institutions. The factor of parental disability is taken into account separately, which allows children to enroll in studies under a preferential system.
