Mishustin approved a new procedure for the payment of sick leave

Mishustin approved an unapproved procedure for the payment of benefits for temporary disability This is reported on the government website.

According to the decree, from 2022, all sick leave certificates will be issued only in electronic form, and benefits for them will be calculated automatically. In addition, the unclaimed procedure applies to benefits for pregnancy and childbirth and at the birth of a child.

Material assistance, as before, will be the Social Insurance Fund (FSS), but now all the necessary information will be sent to the fund by the employer. The FSS may request additional information from the Pension Fund of Russia (PFR), the Federal Tax Service (FTS) and other government agencies. Citizens will be notified of the appointment and payment of benefits on the portal of state services.

As Mishustin previously emphasized, it will be more convenient for citizens to pay benefits to Russians without a claim, since they do not need to collect documents. “Parents will be able to devote more time to their baby, and not waste their time collecting certificates, documents and waiting in queues,” the prime minister said.
