In the working family the receiving services of social support starts with the expectation of the birth of the child. Mothers, who are participants of system of obligatory social insurance, are entitled to receive social benefits in case of loss of income in connection with pregnancy and childbirth. The birth of a child is paid by social benefits from the State Fund of social insurance in case of loss of income in connection with child care up to one year.
The size of these two types of social benefits depends on the size of social contributions made for the period of participation in the system of State Fund of social insurance.
