" All the self-employed people forced to close due to the state of alarm or with a fall in income of 75%, are already entitled to the benefit that we approved at the last Council of Ministers regardless of their condition. The self-employed in this situation will be exempt from paying Social Security contributions and, in addition, they will receive a benefit equivalent to 70% of the regulatory base, which means a minimum of 661 for those who have had to close their business or have lost 75% of their turnover. "

In this way, and through a thread of publications on his Twitter social network profile, the Minister of Social Security, José Luis Escrivá, has guaranteed all the self-employed the right to collect unemployment and not have to pay the quota of Social Security in case of being affected by the coronavirus crisis. And, at the same time, it has denied that the Government is preparing any modification .

This last statement is a direct reference to the statement published in the early afternoon of the ATA and publications on Twitter by its president, Lorenzo Amor, in which he stated that the Government was preparing a modification to extend coverage to all the self-employed. "I invite all the self-employed to request the benefit for cessation of activity. The Government has made the conditions of access more flexible," said Amor, a word that has been collected by the president of the PP, Pablo Casado.

"You will read these days many fake news and many hoaxes that seek to generate uncertainty among the self-employed . For any doubt, consult the official websites of the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration," Escrivá countered, which has ended its chain of publications stating that "The government continues to work on draft measures, such as this extraordinary benefit, to help those who are experiencing difficulties."

In any case, from ATA they remember that the Executive continues without meeting another of its great demands: that it suspend the quotas of the self-employed. " The Government maintains the quota at a time when we have no income, " Amor has denounced on more than one occasion.
