Pensions: how much does the supplement rise to reduce the gender gap in 2023

Date: June 8, 2023 Time: 10:57:21

Today, many pensioners still do not know that they can see their economic benefits increased thanks to the pension supplement to reduce the gender gap, which replaces the previous maternity supplement. The objective it pursues is to harm the damage that women have suffered throughout their professional careers for assuming a leading role in the task of caring for children, which has a direct impact on the field of pensions.

However, although women are cited as the main victims in this field of work, men who have had one or more sons or daughters and who are beneficiaries of a contributory retirement, permanent disability or widow’s pension can also access it. However, the only retirement that is not contemplated is partial, except that full retirement is accessed from partial retirement, which is when your payment will be recognized, as long as the requirements demanded by Social Security are met.

This is how the gender supplement increases in the 2023 pension

The amount of the supplement is set each year in the General State Budget. In the year 2023, the import fixed by the Government of Spain is 29.30 euros per month for each son or daughter, with a limit of four times said import. That is, a total of 117.20 euros per month in the event that they have had four or more children.

It should be noted that these amounts are not taken into account when applying the maximum limit for contributory pensions or when determining the supplement for pensions below the minimum. In other words, it will be added even when the maximum pension is collected, which this year will exceed 3,000 euros per month for the first time.

To put it in context, it should be noted that until 2022 it had an amount of 27 euros per month plus the pension, in the event that a woman had one child, 54 euros if she had two, 81 euros if she had three children or 108 euros if you had four children or more, as a maximum limit.

In which cases can parents request it?

For parents to request the supplement to reduce the gender gap, one of the following circumstances must occur:

Causing a widow’s pension due to the death of the other parent by the sons or daughters in common, provided that some right has a perception of an orphan’s pension Causing a contributory retirement pension or permanent disability and having interrupted or having seen his professional career affected due to the birth or adoption, with certain conditions related to the contribution.
