The allowance is assigned to one of the parents (the adopter, guardian, trustee) for each born, adopted, adopted for guardianship (trusteeship) and a child living with him until he reaches the age of 18 years, provided that the average per capita income of the family does not exceed the value of the subsistence minimum set on the day of circulation.

In accordance with the resolution of the Government of Moscow of June 19, 2013 No. 392-PP, the subsistence level in the first quarter of 2013 was set at 9850 rubles, for the able-bodied population - 11 249 rubles, for pensioners - 6918 rubles ., for children - 8559 rubles.

The law does not apply to:

- citizens of the United States, foreign citizens and stateless persons whose children are on full state support;

- citizens of the United States, foreign citizens and stateless persons deprived of parental rights or limited in parental rights;

- women undergoing military service under contract in military units outside the United States.

The average per capita income of a family is determined on the basis of the Regulation approved by the resolution of the Government of Moscow dated December 28, 2004 No. 911-PP.

The composition of the family, taken into account when calculating the average per capita income, includes:

a) married parents (adoptive parents), including those who live separately, and their minor children living with them or with one of them;

b) a single parent (adopter) and minor children living with him.

The family does not include:

is the spouse (parent, adopter), who is wanted by law enforcement agencies, bailiffs, sentenced to imprisonment or arrested, undergoing compulsory treatment by court order or forensic medical examination on the basis of a decision of the investigating authorities or the court.

When calculating the average per capita income in a family, the following are taken into account:

a) all types of wages (remuneration, content) and additional remuneration for all places of work and other payments received in connection with work activities;

b) cash allowance and other payments to servicemen and persons equated to them;

d) other payments (remuneration under civil law contracts for the performance of work or provision of services, royalties, income from engaging in entrepreneurial activities, income from participation in the management of the organization's property, interest on bank deposits, alimony, etc.) .

Per capita income is defined as the total amount of accrued family income (before tax) for the last six calendar months before the request. Income in foreign currency is translated into rubles at the rate of the Central Bank of the United States on the day of receipt.

Revenues from the peasant (farm) economy are accounted for by agreement between its members on the use of fruits, produce and other income. We do not take into account the accrued but not actually paid wages (monetary remuneration, maintenance).

The amount of per capita income is determined by dividing the total family income for the billing period by six and by the number of family members.

The allowance is assigned in an increased amount:

a) on children of single mothers;

b) for children whose parents shy away from paying alimony; on the children of servicemen who are conscripted as sergeants, foremen, soldiers and sailors, as well as cadets of military educational establishments of vocational education before concluding a contract for military service.

Women are recognized as single mothers if:

- the adopter of the child is a woman who is unmarried;

- the children of a single mother are transferred to the care of a guardian or guardian (due to the death of the mother, her illness and for other reasons).

The payment of the allowance in an increased amount is terminated from the month following the month in which the debtor began paying alimony, and in the case of the search of the debtor - from the month following the month in which the debtor's location was established.

The application is considered no later than 10 days from the date it was received with all necessary documents.

The bodies of social protection of the population have the right to verify the authenticity of the information submitted by requesting tax, housing and other bodies (organizations) that have information about the family's income, and also carry out a commission audit of income at the place of residence. In the latter case, the application review period is extended to 30 days.

The allowance is appointed from the month of birth of the child, if the application for it was followed not later than six months from the month of his birth. If you miss this period, the allowance is appointed no more than six months from the date of submission of the application with all necessary documents.

But in all cases, the allowance is granted no earlier than the month of registration of the parent (adoptive parent, guardian, guardian) at the place of residence in Moscow.

If a citizen has arrived in Moscow from another US subject, the benefit is paid from the next month after the termination of the payment of a similar benefit from the budget of the subject of the United States at the former place of residence.

The suspension, termination or renewal of payment of benefits is made from the month following the one in which the relevant circumstances occurred.
