The revaluation of pensions for this new year has put these economic benefits in the crosshairs of each other. And it is that the historic rise, of 8.5% for Social Security contributory pensions, and up to 15% for non-contributory pensions, that is, those managed by the IMSERSO public body together with the different communities autonomous in Spain, casts lights and shadows. This is because its increase also implies an increase in the contribution tranche, that is, personal income tax, whose minimum rates start at 9.5% for amounts less than 12,450 euros.

Having said this, what pension corresponds to a person who has been a housewife all her life? Well, first of all, it is important to know that in order to be entitled to request a contributory pension, you must have contributed 15 years to Social Security, as long as two of them have been just before accessing retirement. Now, what happens when, historically, the woman or mother of the family has dedicated herself to carrying out household chores at home or taking care of the children.

Here is the crux of the matter. Well, here is where non-contributory pensions come into play. According to the very definition given by Social Security, they are economic benefits that are adopted for those citizens who, being in a situation of protectable need, lack sufficient resources, even when they have never contributed or for a sufficient time from the previous to the previous. Within this modality, are the Disability and Retirement pensions.

Full: 484.61 euros per month. Minimum of 25%: 131.44 per month. Full plus the 50% increase: 788.70 per month.

Likewise, the Public Administration recalls that if two or more recipients of this non-contributory modality live within the same family unit, the individual amount for each of them is as follows:
