Documents are different:some of them are kept at home for years and are not pulled out of the folders, while others need to be carried constantly. In my purse there are always three documents: a passport, a medical policy and SNILS. It is clear that a passport is needed to verify the identity of a person, without a policy it is impossible to get free medical care, but what for SNILS is needed for?
The fact is that SNILS is a "key" from manystate and municipal services. The number written on the card is the personal identifier of the citizen. It consists of eleven digits and is unique. At present, it is not necessary to seat the thresholds of numerous instances, make an appointment with a doctor or take turns in a kindergarten through the Internet. If you need to register at your place of residence, obtain a foreign passport or replace your driver's license, you do not need to waste time in long lines. It is enough to fill out the required forms on the "State Service" portal, and then come to the right organization at the appointed time. But without a number with a green plastic card to enter this site will not work. SNILS is your login on this Internet portal.
The authorities plan to soon createuniversal electronic card for citizens, which will replace such documents as TIN, medical policy, pension certificate. All benefits will be provided for it and benefits will be transferred to it. And the number of universal citizen card will be SNILS.
How to find out the SNILS number, if you do not have one at handgreen plastic card? To do this, you need to go to the same portal of the "State Service" and enter your passport details, after that the system will inform the number of the insurance certificate, which is the SNLS.
