The transfer of funds within the framework of one-time payments to families with school-age children will begin on August 16. This was announced on Wednesday, July 14, by the head of the Russian Ministry of Labor Anton Kotyakov.
“On the instructions of the President, payments will begin in mid-August so that families have time to prepare their children for school. The start of payments is scheduled for August 16. Most families will receive funds on this very day, ”the head of the department said in an interview with reporters.
He clarified that parents can send their applications from July 15 through the State Services portal or any client service of the Pension Fund. You can apply for a one-time payment to prepare children for school before the end of October, writes Gazeta.ru.
“The payment of 10 thousand rubles for schoolchildren is a one-time benefit, so it can be transferred to an account linked to a card of any payment system, which is indicated in the citizen’s application,” Kotyakov explained.
In addition, according to the minister, many families have already received pre-filled applications in their personal account on State Services, in which it is only necessary to check and confirm the correctness of the data.
On May 3, it was reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to pay 10 thousand rubles for each student in August.

According to the head of the Ministry of Labor, 17 million people can apply for the payment. For these purposes, 204 billion rubles were allocated from the budget.
