22 July, 2021
By the decree of the Government of the Republic of Armenia N 2001-L of December 10, 2020, it was approved “The measure of social assistance to the families of the missing servicemen as a result of the hostilities unleashed by Azerbaijan on September 27, 2020 ”, and by the decree N 2180-L of December 24, 2020 was approved “The procedure for providing monthly payments to the families of servicemen missing due to hostilities".

According to the mentioned decisions, until the status of the missing servicemen is clarified, the family members of each missing serviceman receive assistance in the amount of 300,000 AMD per month, but not for more than 9 months from the date of approval of this measure.

By Decree of the Government of the Republic of Armenia N 2001-L of December 10, 2020, it is determined that the monthly payment is provided through the "Fund for Compensation of Damages Caused to the Life and Health of Servicemen". In case of identification and burial of the body of a missing soldier, after the recognition of his family members as beneficiaries of the fund, the monthly payment in the amount of  300,000 AMD is stopped, and the paid amounts are deducted from the sum total to be paid to the beneficiary from the fund.
