Оплата

Social benefit is paid during the period, which is specified in the sheet of temporary disability. It is calculated through a complex formula: multiplying the average monthly income by the appropriate coefficient of disability days. The employer will pay for maternity leave with the average wage (minus the amount of monthly insurance allowance), if it is established by contract, collective agreement, the employer's act/internal regulations.

Also there is one-time state allowance, fixed and paid by the birth of a child. The rates of the allowance for the birth:

  • for the first, second, third child - 31.41 monthly calculation indices  (31.41*2,269= 71269,29 tenge);
  • for the fourth and more child - 52.35 monthly calculation indices.

Since January 2017, the monthly calculation index is 2,269 tenge.
