As of today Belarus increases benefits for families with children under 3. Payments were increased by an average of 10.5%. Thus, almost 473 rubles are provided for the first child per month, and 540 for the second and subsequent children. The lump-sum allowance at the birth of a child is also larger now. When the first baby is born, the payment is 2629 rubles. The recalculation of benefits is planned due to the increase in the average monthly salary. Also, Belarus is stepping up the monthly supplement to the pensions of non-working pensioners.
