Types of benefits for pregnancy

The above amount of the pregnant woman receives at the place of work, study or service.
  2. Allowance for pregnancy and childbirth. It is provided with a single amount for maternity leave, lasting 140 calendar days. That is, 70 days before and 70 after delivery. When there were twins and more children, the second half of maternity leave rises to 86 days (a total of 156 days). If the birth of a woman was complicated, then the duration of the decree also increases. Accordingly, 84 before and 110 after delivery (a total duration of 194 days).

Also in 2013, the legislator changed the procedure for calculating this benefit. Earlier, in 2011-2012, the average wage was calculated by dividing the sum of all the accruals of a woman for the two preceding decrees of the year. In this year, 2013, women receive the above benefit on the basis of the total income for two calendar (!) years divided by the total number of days of these two years. When the insurance period of a working woman is less than six months, the amount of this payment is 1 minimum wage. This amount as of January 1, 2013 in Russia is 5205 rubles.

To assign the two above-mentioned benefits, a woman should be provided with a sick leave sheet. Non-working women legislator does not provide for the calculation of benefits for pregnancy and childbirth.
