The amount and allowance of some social welfare increased


The government has brought into the discussion the issue about amendment of social welfareto its November 24th meeting and has decided to increase the amount of several social welfare measures as well as to add the allowance of selected aid. The amount of social welfare and aid hasn’t been amended since 2008, thus, it was decided to increase the social welfare amount by 0.5 to 2 percent adjusting to the inflation rate and cost of living. Accordingly, the 11.4 billion MNT that was used to spend for social welfare has been increased by 13 billion MNT, totaling 24 billion MNT.

There are 23300 citizens in Mongolia who are in permanent need of care. Those people used to receive 30 thousand MNT once a semester, but starting from 2013 they will receive 60 thousand MNT. There are 8400 children under age 16, who are receiving permanent care who live in Mongolia. Those children used to receive 30 thousand MNT monthly from the government and the government has decided to double their welfare also reaching 60 thousand MNT. Also, the welfare amount for single parents who have 3 or more children under age 14has been doubled to 60 thousand MNT. Also the government has reached the decision to give a yearly grant to families who had twins and triplets 1 million MNT and 3 million MNT.
Mongolian government used to give 90 thousand MNT once a year to children with disability for the transportation expense, and it was decided to increase that amount to 200 thousand MNT.
