The second month of the year begins and there are many unemployed people who wonder when unemployment is collected in February. Specifically, according to the latest data provided, the unemployment rate in January stagnated at 12.9% at the height of the economic slowdown, which represents just under three million unemployed in Spain. On the other hand, let us remember that the unemployment benefit entails an important novelty in 2023, and it has to do with its new amounts after the revaluation of the social benefit. This implies that, at least, 560 euros per month of unemployment will be charged if you do not have children or 749 if you have one or more children.
The Government, at the request of the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy, led by Yolanda Díaz, recognized a rise in unemployment for the next twelve months, which was reflected in the General State Budget. The objective of this substantial increase is closely related to the fact of facing the high rate of inflation, which closed the first month of the year at 5.8%. However, during the last months of 2022, the CPI reached the double-digit barrier, as happened in August, when it peaked at 10.4%.
There is no doubt that this international economic situation, partly as a consequence of the Russian invasion in Ukraine, is reflected in the basic day-to-day expenses of any citizen, such as the electricity bill, the cost of fuel or what is paid in the supermarket to fill the shopping basket with basic foods. Just in this, to say that next February 15 begins the application period to request the 200 euro sense check, which can be accessed by people in a situation who receive unemployment or the subsidy for insufficient contribution.
