Benefits for a funeral in 2017 Automatic translate
To alleviate the fate of relatives who have assumed the obligation to bury a loved one, the state guarantees them a certain part of the costs.
In some cases, state assistance is the only option to pay for mandatory events in the process of organizing a funeral.
In any case, the importance and targeting of such benefits can hardly be overestimated. But most citizens know almost nothing about them - what sizes, where to get, what to spend on, and so on. We will try to answer the indicated questions.
To how much
For the Moscow region, the minimum amount for such benefits is 16,562 rubles. It is laid to those categories of citizens who at the time of death were not engaged in any labor activity.
This amount is set for a reason. Her state specifically expects to be enough to cover the basic / minimum package of funeral services. For those who belong to the group of poor citizens, such assistance is the most targeted and necessary.
26,280 rubles - money paid to the relatives of a person who holds a special status: veterans of the Great Patriotic War or law enforcement agencies; honorary donors; other categories.
But to cover all the costs of the indicated amount may not be enough. For such a case, it is possible to increase the limit to 38 thousand rubles, but only in terms of actually incurred expenses. It is enough to provide supporting documents, after which the funds are transferred upon request.
Where to get compensation
The addressee of the appeal depends on the status of the person in respect of whom compensation is issued. If this is not a working person anywhere, with respect to which a minimum amount is provided, then you need to contact the FSS territorial bodies.
If the deceased is related to law enforcement agencies, and in relation to him an increased amount of compensation is paid, then the appeal should already follow the district military registration and enlistment office. In both cases, an application from relatives (other authorized persons) should be considered during the current day. The maximum period is 1 day.
Obtaining such preferences can be entrusted to state ritual services that can count the exemption in absentia. That is, first they will provide all the necessary funeral services, taking into account the benefits, and after that receive compensation already in their address.
In fact, relatives will not need to collect certificates and think about how to properly spend the funds received. Most do just that.
