Who is the parent capital?

When a young family begins to think about the birth of a second child, the question arises of who is given maternity capital. We will try in this article to clearly define who is entitled to the parent capital, who is entitled to this money from the federal budget.

How many children should there be?

Under the terms of the issue, the maternity capital is put to the family (more precisely, to the mother) at the birth of the second child. The third child is not included in the plans of the state. Even if you have twins in the second birth, the maternity capital will give you one. If triplet is born in the first birth, then the mother also has one maternity capital. Experts say that “maternity capital” is a government program that offers help to a family with two or more children once. So the state doesn’t care how many children you have, as long as there are at least two of them.

Terms of receiving money

To begin with, this program is Russian, which means that the child’s mother must be a citizen of Russia.If a mother lives in Russia, but she has another citizenship, then she is not entitled to money for a child. And if, on the contrary, mother lives abroad, but has not lost her citizenship, then she will definitely receive maternity capital. By the way, the same applies to the child. He must also have Russian citizenship.

Answering the question about who is entitled to maternity capital, it is necessary to fall within the time frame of the law. It is valid from 00.00 on January 1, 2007. If your child was born before this moment, then the parent capital of the family is not allowed.

Capital is paid as a mother who gave birth to a second child, and adopted one. All benefits and payments that are placed on the child’s birth are extended to the adopted child. The state makes no distinction between such children.

If the family has not received its capital for the second child (for example, he was born before January 1, 2007), then she will be able to do this at the birth of the third or fourth child.

Who gets the maternity capital?

Most often, the payment receives mom. Sometimes in life there are difficult and even tragic situations in which family members ask themselves who can get the parent capital.The money was given to the father of the child in the event of the death of the mother of the second child, if she was deprived of parental rights. If both parents died, then the child inherits the capital. He will be able to handle them upon reaching the age of majority and only for those purposes for which the use of this amount is permitted by law: repayment of the loan, mortgages, education of the child, etc.
