Public allowances to be automatically granted in Azerbaijan

Baku, Azerbaijan, May 2

By Huseyn Valiyev - Trend:

Azerbaijani State Social Protection Fund (SSPF) has automated the procedure of granting public allowances from the compulsory state social insurance funds.

Commenting on this innovation on Friday, May 2 the SSFP Financial-Budget Department Head, Mammad Nuriyev said this service envisages submitting applications to the SSPF for obtaining five types of allowances.

"These include allowances for persons who are temporarily unable to work, maternity and childbirth allowances, newborn and child care allowances, and death allowances," Nuriyev said.

This service is integrated into the electronic government portal (e-gov.az).

Nuriyev also said that last year about 210,000 people were given social allowances.

"Automating this process will contribute to the transparency of the services rendered by the SSPF," he stressed.
