Can a family become a beneficiary of the Government’s 9th action, if the mother of minor children is also pregnant and does not work, while the father of the family works? 




No. The 9th action envisages assistance for children under 18, whose parents do not work and whose family does not receive family benefits. 


According to the Government’s decision, the requirement on not working applies to the two parents simultaneously. In this case, the child’s father works, therefore, the family cannot become a beneficiary of the action.


The action  is presented below in detail 👇 


Below you can find beneficiaries of the 9th action aimed at neutralizing the economic consequences of coronavirus, approved by Government’s decision 427-L, dated April 2, 2020:


families who have a child below 18 years of age, and none of the child’s parents or the only parent did not have a registered job as of March 12, 2020 and was not employed for a temporary or permanent registered job during March 12, 2020 - March 31, 2020.


‼️Thus, according to the Government’s decision, assistance is provided to children under 18 years of age, whose parents (only parent) do not work (are not registered employees) and the family does not receive family benefits.


‼️The assistance is nonrecurrent and is provided for each child of the family in the amount of 26,500 AMD


‼️To receive the assistance, one of the parents or the only parent should submit an electronic application on online.ssa.am site after April 9, 2020


‼️It is important to remember that in all cases where the beneficiary is eligible for more than 1 action of assistance approved by the RA Government, he/she can choose the one, in the frame of which, the provided assistance is greater.


❌It is not possible to become a beneficiary of the action, if


  1. During January 1, 2020 - March 1, 2020, parents or one of the parents of the child had a registered permanent or temporary job, and during that period the total monthly average salary of parents or the average monthly salary of one of the parents exceeded 500,000 AMD.
  2. As of March 12, 2020, the family was registered in the family insecurity assessment system or the family’s insecurity score is higher than 28.01 (they receive a family benefit).
  3. The child’s parents or one of the parents was an individual entrepreneur as of March 31, 2020, and as of March 31, his/her activity was not halted in a manner prescribed by the RA legislation.
