7 time viewed

During the quarantine period in Almaty alone, the number of employees in enterprises decreased by 266 thousand people in total. A similar situation is observed for individual entrepreneurs, 80% of which have suspended their activities. Thus, according to preliminary calculations, the current situation negatively affected the financial condition of about 500 thousand citizens, reports.

Therefore, for the period of the state of emergency, the President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev instructed to start making monthly payments to persons who lost income due to the state of emergency, in the amount of 1 minimum wage (42,500 tenge). In total, at least 1.5 million of our fellow citizens can count on this assistance.

The State Commission has expanded the circle of recipients of social benefits, including self-employed, who have lost their jobs, as well as some groups of socially vulnerable segments of the population. About 3 million Kazakhstanis will receive support in the amount of 42,500 tenge.

Initially, the social payment, the amount of which per person is 42.5 thousand tenge per month (minimum wage), was supposed for certain categories of citizens. The list was later expanded. Today, social benefits in case of loss of income due to the state of emergency are considered for the following categories:

  1. employees of small and medium-sized enterprises on vacation without pay;
  2. employees of large enterprises operating in settlements where quarantine is imposed, who are on vacation without pay;
  3. individual entrepreneurs who do not use wage labor (editor's note: in the old edition was: individual entrepreneurs);
  4. persons engaged in private practice (notary public, private enforcement agent, lawyer, professional mediator, etc.);
  5. to individuals who are payers of single aggregate payment in accordance with Article 774 of the Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan "On taxes and other obligatory payments to the budget";
  6. individuals who receive income under civil law contracts, the subject of which is the performance of work (provision of services), for which mandatory pension contributions have been paid by tax agents;
  7. employees of non-commercial legal entities on vacation without pay, except for state ones.

In other words, payments can be received by employees of small and medium-sized businesses who were sent on leave without pay in quarantine cities, this also includes large businesses, as well as individuals, self-employed. These are private practitioners: private lawyers, notaries, bailiffs, mediators – there are more than 2 thousand of them in the country. These are people who worked under civil law contracts, there are also about 180 thousand of them.

Earlier, an application for social payments could be submitted by employers for their employees, individual entrepreneurs, state of emergency and payers of the aggregate payment – for themselves. At the same time, employers had to provide documents confirming the loss of income by their employees in connection with the restriction of activities during the state of emergency, a list of employees and an extract from the order on the provision of leave without saving wages to employees.

Now the requirements for the provision of documents confirming the fact of loss of income due to an emergency have been canceled.

To assign social benefits:

  • Employers apply only with a list of employees;
  • Individual entrepreneurs and payers of the single aggregate payment submit only an application, indicating personal data.

Also, the employee can submit an application himself, without waiting for his employer to do so.

Today, no documents are required. Only the appeal is considered. This appeal indicates the whole reason, personal data – name, IIN and card account. The employer encloses a list of his employees.

In terms of employees, now such workers also include employees of non-profit organizations, public associations, if they were sent on vacation without pay. This does not apply to employees of state bodies and the quasi-public sector.

Self-employed individuals. There are officially working before the state of emergency and unofficially working. Those who worked officially are individual entrepreneurs, citizens who were engaged in work under civil law contracts. They have the right, if over the past 12 months they have made social or pension contributions at least 1 time before the state of emergency. This category also includes citizens who paid a single aggregate payment.

As for informally working, these are those people who were engaged in some small work, microbusiness, and were not registered at the same time. They do not have individual labor contracts, they did not pay taxes, social and pension contributions. To receive a payment, it is enough to formalize your status in order to receive 42.5 thousand each month. To formalize is to pay the CAP at least once.

Persons who receive benefits, pensions from the state, social benefits cannot apply. However, in addition, such citizens could earn extra money and pay. If pensioners, persons with disabilities, before March 16, were engaged in any kind of paid work, made the aggregate payment at least once, then they can expect to receive 42,500.

Women on maternity leave. Up to one year, the state pays childcare benefits, working women receive from the social insurance fund. However, for mothers who are on maternity leave, but the child is one year old and there are no payments from the state, no allowance is provided. Today it is more difficult to find a job for them. Therefore, a mother who is on maternity leave and has a child older than 1 year old can apply for 42,500, having previously paid a single aggregate payment.

At the same time, it is not necessary to prove to someone that your income is lost due to the state of emergency; no one will double-check it.

Applications or appeals are submitted electronically through the Egov portal and the special website.


Through the service you will need to fill in your data. Now you do not need to attach any files to this appeal. This appeal will be the whole point. And it will be necessary to sign an electronic digital signature. Or, via SMS receiving a password.

Special website 42500.ENBEK.KZ

Today Egov is very busy, so the Ministry of Labor and BTS have developed a special website. All citizens will also be able to apply on it, indicate their details – name, IIN and bank account. Through SMS, having received the password, secure it with your signature.

Telegram bot

There are people who do not have a computer to access the site or on Egov. It will be offered to use the Telegram bot via a mobile phone. This will be the application that should be downloaded to collect your data. In addition, in order to distribute the load and for the convenience of citizens, the Ministry of Digital Development, Innovation and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan has developed a separate bot for each region.

Single aggregate payment

Many people do not have such social deductions and never have done. These are those people who work informally, who did not have employment contracts, did not pay taxes and no deductions – they will also be able to get 42,500 tenge. To do this, it will be enough to formalize your status.

To do this, it is enough to make an aggregate payment – this is 2,651 tenge for urban residents and 1,325 tenge for rural residents. Once you pay, you will receive the right to receive monthly 42,500 on the next day. This applies to everyone who worked informally.

There are two ways to pay single aggregate payment for urban and rural residents.

The first one – in the mobile offers of banks – Halyk, Fortebank, Sberbank, Jysan bank, Bank Center Credit, Caspi bank and in Kazpost branches there are mobile applications where you can pay.

The second is via SMS. To do this, just send an SMS to 5505 from your phone and indicate GORODESP IIN for urban residents and SELOESP IIN for rural residents.

There are citizens who have never had a bank account, so the application does not go further. A platform is being developed without filling out a bank account, but fixing a statement. A bank account can be sent later within a month from the date of application.

It is not necessary to open a special account to receive 42,500. Any card bank account is suitable. No debts will be withdrawn from social payments in the amount of 42,500 tenge: neither for utility services, nor for loans, nor for taxes. This money is inviolable. No bank has the right to hold any debts, even if they are.

It is worth noting that all portals are working today. On the morning of April 6, 2020, 1 million 284 thousand applications have already been received.
