Paediatrician Doctor Doing Brain Treatment To Autistic Child In Clinic

The Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation is working on simplifying the procedure for recognition as a disabled person, RIA Novosti reports

The main goal is to maximize the possibility of examining without the personal presence of citizens.

Currently, the Ministry of Labor is engaged in the transfer of procedures related to the provision of social support measures for people with disabilities into a proactive format. This will allow them to provide social support measures unconditionally assigned to persons with disabilities.

Specialists of the Ministry of Labor have already prepared a draft law on a proactive (non-declaring) procedure for assigning disability pensions, as it was within the framework of the temporary examination procedure introduced during the period of the coronavirus epidemic.

The Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation Alexei Vovchenko said that the possibility of examination without citizens’ participation would remain after October 1. According to him, in 2021, up to 20% of citizens will apply for or extend disability without personal presence. In the future, the proportion of such people who will have the opportunity to continue their disability remotely will increase.
