From the 1st January of 2020, the state targeted social assistance (hereinafter - TSA) will be issued in a new format. TSA payments scheduled for 2019 are suspended.
The changed TSA mechanism is aimed at ensuring transparency, justice, as well as increasing motivation to work.
TSA payment approaches have changed. As before, TSA will be paid to low-income families, whose income per family member will be below the poverty line, i.e. 70% of the living wage of the region (in the Karaganda region for the 1st quarter of 2020 - 20199 tenge).
The size of TSA will be determined for all family members, including children, as the difference between the poverty line and per capita income. Appointed quarterly for three months. Fixed payments of TSA for children in the amount of 20789 tenge were canceled.
The requirements for the able-bodied are being strengthened. One of the main conditions for the appointment of TSA remains the need to work and be responsible for the family. If an able-bodied family member refuses the proposed measures to promote employment, then all members of his family lose their right to TSA. Also, mothers engaged in caring for a child, upon reaching a child of three years of age, should participate in active measures of employment.
At the expense of the republican budget, additional measures are introduced to support large families in the form of state benefits. The payment of benefits will not depend on family income, and will be paid to all large families with 4 or more minor children and full-time students under the age of 23 years, in the amount of:
• for four children - 42496 tenge;
• for five children - 53127 tenge;
• for six children - 63757 tenge;
• for seven or more children - 74388 tenge.
Besides, in addition, children aged 1 to 6 years from low-income families will receive a guaranteed social package, including a grocery set and hygiene products.
