UP gives itself three months to convince the PSOE of the €1,200 “baby check”.

“I am pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement and we have a commitment from our government partner to submit a joint text to the Council of Ministers in September.” With these words, the Minister for Social Rights and the 2030 Agenda, Ione Belarra, announced this week an agreement with the PSOE to approve Family law after summer. But the truth is that, for now, United Us has only been able to push the majority partner of the coalition to agree on a calendar for the implementation of one of the stellar laws being promoted by the Purples, as the Socialists continue to stick to support most of the measures that will be included in this family package. Three months of tense negotiations remain.

As it became known to La Información, Belarra managed to obtain this commitment from the minister of presidential administration. Felix Bolanos, after months of trying to push through the most important law in his portfolio. Now PSOE has promised to approve it only in September. do not include all the measures proposed by United We Can. However, this transfer suits the purples, because the very fact of setting a deadline and setting a deadline forces the state partner to start negotiations. “We were not given the go-ahead for the proposals, we only managed to convince them to set a deadline, but an agreement should come out by that deadline,” sources from the team of the Minister of Social Rights say.

One of the main measures of the Family Law is a universal parenting allowance of 100 euros per month for all Spanish mothers, which will rise to 125 euros in the case of single-parent families. This income will be in addition to the maternity allowance that the Personal Income Tax Act (IRPF) already provides for working mothers, which is an amount of €1,200 per year for each child under the age of 3, which can be introduced in action in advance or with the application of a deduction. in the annual income tax return. United We Can is trying to persuade PSOE to approve this kind of “baby check” of 1200 euros per year from September 2021, but the Treasury is knocking it down for budgetary reasons, and at the moment the minister Maria Jesus Montero remains at “no”.

The Ministry of Finance rejects this measure, despite the fact that the Government reflected this approach in the document “Spain 2050”, where it is proposed to reform family benefits, arguing that the economic support policy for households with dependent children is focused on the treatment that CRER provides from the institution of the family , and “it does not affect households with minors and lower incomes, who are clearly not well protected.” “In particular, those individuals and families who do not file a personal income tax return because they do not receive income cannot benefit from tax savings corresponding to the fees for descendants,” the document says, which proposes changing the tax regime to such in such a way that, as it happens, maternity deductions can be returned to households not liable to pay taxes, but whose income exceeds Minimum Living Income (IMV).

In parallel, the executive branch proposed in this roadmap for the next 30 years to create new child care allowance, in this case under 18 years of age. “Initially, this benefit should be addressed to all those families who are at risk of poverty but do not qualify to access the IMV. Subsequently, it should be extended to the rest of the families in the country, as is already being done. in most European states”, defends a document that Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez himself presented at a major event a year ago and which was compiled by a hundred experts called by the head of the Moncloa Prospective office, Ivan Krugly.

Permission extension

“Baby check” is part of a broader “family package” that UP is fighting for, which includes extension of maternity leave to 6 months. The Treasury also declined to include the measure in 2022 budgets, arguing that the government had already taken the very important work of gradually increasing maternity leave to 16 weeks. But the violets do not give up and from the department led by Ione Belarra insist that in the next three months, they intend to focus all their efforts on convincing PSOE members on the need to extend maternity leave, as well as to make it easier for single-parent families to use both leaves or use one of them by a partner responsible for raising or a relative of the second degree of kinship or kinship.

All these measures will continue to be discussed in the government throughout the summer to reach September with a certain approach. Meanwhile, next Tuesday the Council of Ministers is set to give the green light to reform of the abortion law, where the Ministry of Equality is trying to introduce measures such as approving specific sick leave due to incapacitated menstruation or paid leave. in the last month of pregnancy. For its part, the Department of Labor is developing new rules to delve into work-family reconciliation measures for workers with children and carers, preparing a flexible work law for parents that provides for greater financial assistance and will be released soon. the last one in August, as specified in the 2022 Annual Regulatory Plan.
