Payouts for long marriage fixed in Kazan: less only in three Russian regions

Group congratulation is free, individual — for a fee

Payouts of up to 25,000 rubles have been fixed in Kazan for spouses celebrating the 50th, 60th or 70th wedding anniversary. However, compared to other regions, they are much higher in most of them than in the capital of Tatarstan. Read more in Realnoe Vremya’s report.

Those who have the Russian citizenship, lives and registered their marriage in Kazan are entitled to the payouts. This year, these are their amounts:

  • 6,000 rubles — for the 50th anniversary;
  • 10,000 rubles — for the 60th anniversary
  • 25,000 rubles — for the 70th anniversary

The spouses who celebrated the anniversary in 2022 are entitled to money too, but it is much less: 3,000 rubles for the 50th and 60th anniversary, 5,000 — for the 70th wedding anniversary. In general the payout as well as solemn events to congratulate the couples will be annual. The married life is considered to begin on the day the marriage was registered and doesn’t sum if the spouses have several periods.

The events are worthy of mentioning separately. So its date is determined depending on the financing and it is free for all the couples that submitted an application this month. While honouring the spouses individually with an individual scenario is based on a fee.

Five Kazan couples celebrated the 70th wedding anniversary last year

As head of the Register Office Rimma Minnulina recently explained, 1,140 spouses received congratulations and money last year. 987 couples celebrated the 50th anniversary, 148 did the 60th jubilee.
