Social payments in Kazakhstan plan to increase by 30%. Majilis approved the bill.

“To enhance the social protection for families left without a breadwinner, it is proposed to increase the amount of welfare benefits by boosting the number of dependents,” said Minister of labor and social protection of Kazakhstan Berdybek Saparbayev.

“In addition, the draft law provides increase of the rate of income replacement, on average, 30% of recipients of social payments on loss of employment and increase the duration of social benefits with 4 to 6 months depending on the length of the system,” he added.
The developers promise that the situation of each recipient of payments will be considered individually.
