01 September 2006 [13:47] - TODAY.AZ
Today seminar was held with participation of regional social assistance benefits and subsistence allowances officers.

Minister of Labour and Social Protection of Population of Azerbaijan (MLSPP), Fuzuli Alakbarov, said that the seminar is on the latest situation of state social assistance benefits and subsistence allowances, APA reports.

"Provision of social assistance benefits and subsistence allowances has started for 2 months. We should analyze and improve this newfound mechanism. The principal aim is to find who is eligible to receive assistance benefits and this process should be transparent."

He said that many applied for state social assistance benefits and subsistence allowances but their application was rejected.

But some try to receive benefits and allowances through illegal methods, but if any body was found to receive social benefits or subsistence allowances illegally, they will be deprived of these benefits and allowances for 2 years and will be forced to pay back the money they received.

"Measures are taken to improve the subsistence level. 435 000 new jobs have been opened. We also think that new criteria should be applied for the disable."

Other officials also addressed the seminar and exchanged views on problems.
