It is expected that the aid corresponding to the Minimum Vital Income will rise from January 2023 by around 8.5%, as will contributory pensions. This is because the amount of the subsidy is linked to the CPI, so its variation directly affects the amount of money that the beneficiaries receive. Let us remember that the IMV is managed by the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations, currently led by Minister José Luis Escrivá, so its revaluation for next year is linked to the rise in contributory pensions, after the approval of the first reform approved by the Government of Spain in December of last year, which once again linked the rise to average year-on-year inflation.
This will be the first time in the history of this Minimum Vital Income aid that the minimum amount to be received will exceed 500 euros. While the maximum amount will add up to 1,181 euros per month, although in a single specific case, that is, almost 100 euros more per month. This amount may increase in case of receiving the childhood supplement for each dependent minor child, 100 euros for children under three years of age, 70 euros for those over three years of age and under six, and 50 euros for over six years of age and under 18. Another novelty that will begin to be applied from January 1 is the employment incentive, since it will be possible to work while collecting the IMV.
All these novelties have been implemented to try to get help to more people, despite the successive denials of the requests, in many cases due to duplication, not complying with the strict requirements or making mistakes when completing the forms. This benefit is granted both for individuals and for cohabitation units that do not reach the minimum income threshold of 5,899.60 euros per year, individually. Let’s see the key dates to collect it at the bank.
