Accessing the labor market once a certain age group has been exceeded is not always easy, which is why there are many housewives actively seeking employment who, given the lack of economic resources, choose to apply for the subsidy for those over 52 years of age. But, what requirements must be met to be able to request the help of 480 euros per month? Well, the first thing to know is that it has a great advantage, and that is that it is a contributory benefit for the future retirement pension.
At this point, what are the general requirements to access? First, having exhausted the contributory benefit, that is, unemployment, or the unemployment benefit. In addition, it will be necessary to have contributed for unemployment, at least, between 90 and 359 days. On the other hand, the State Public Employment Service recalls that you must not have your own income of any nature that in monthly calculation is greater than 75% of the Minimum Interprofessional Salary. Remember that, since the approval of the new SMI, it is 1,080 euros gross per month, divided into 14 annual payments. To be more exact, it cannot exceed 810 euros per month.
On the other hand, how long does the subsidy last for people over 52 years of age? The aid of 480 euros lasts until the beneficiary reaches retirement age, which in 2023 is 66 years and four months. Once the ordinary retirement age is reached, the contributory retirement pension will be collected in the Social Security system.
When, where and how do I process the subsidy for people over 52
In the event that the housewife is 52 years of age or older at the time of meeting the requirements to access a subsidy, she must request it within 15 business days following the day in which she meets the waiting period for one month or prove the legal situation of unemployment for having voluntarily terminated from a job, yes, having proven an occupation period of more than 90 days and less than 360.
Another point that arises is where I process it. Well, the SEPE offers several options to submit the application through:
The SEPE electronic headquarters. At the benefits office (after obtaining a prior appointment at the SEPE electronic headquarters or by phone). At any public registry office. By administrative mail.
