Large family: rights and benefits
Advised lawyer Mikhail Khromov.
According to Art. 1 of the Law of Ukraine of April 26, 2001 No. 2402-III “On the Protection of Childhood”, a large family is a family that consists of parents (or one of them) and three or more children.
Of course, I admire such families, and therefore I will try to describe in more detail the legal side of this issue.
Parents and children from large families are issued appropriate certificates. The sample certificate, the procedure for the production and issuance of certificates are established by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine(Article 13 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Protection of Childhood").
“Mother Heroine” is an honorary title conferred by a decree of the President of Ukraine to women who gave birth and raised five or more children, including children adopted in accordance with the procedure established by law, taking into account the significant personal contribution to raising children in the family, creating favorable conditions for the education of children, the development of their creative abilities, the formation of high spiritual and moral qualities(Decree of the President of Ukraine No. 476 of June 29, 2001 "On Honorary Titles of Ukraine").
(Approx.- The necessary materials for the assignment of an honorary title are prepared by the department for family and youth (at the organization’s request — the place of work of the mother or a large organization) at the place of residence and sent to the local state administration for further referral to the Presidential Administration of Ukraine.
Persons registered in the Unified State Automated Register of persons entitled to benefits are entitled to benefits. In order to be included in the register, families with many children must provide the Department of Labor and Social Protection with such documents: parents' passports, birth certificates of children, copies of identification number assignment certificates, certificate of family composition and payment books (payment receipts) for services.
It is provided that parents and children from large families are issued the appropriate certificates. The sample certificate, the procedure for the production and issuance of certificates are established by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
