• The puncture of the summer is already reflected in the ERTE: fewer departures and more affected in tourism

The Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration has clarified this Thursday how the process of granting the Minimum Vital Income approved by the Government to face the coronavirus crisis is progressing.

And the bottom line is that the process is moving slowly. The department headed by José Luis Escrivá has received a total of 750,000 rental applications, of which it has analyzed a total of 143,000. That is, one in five.

The result of this first screening shows enormous confusion and urgency among applicants for aid , as well as the ministry's few resources to deal with the flood of applications in the middle of the summer season. Two examples that illustrate the rush of the applicants is that more than 56,000 requests have been made in duplicate or in more than 57,000 documentation has been provided incompletely by not incorporating the certificate of registration.

Of the total number of requests analyzed, Social Security has given the ok to a total of 80,000 households, which is just over half. The rest have either been denied "due to excess income or assets" or other reasons (36,800 cases), or they have been paralyzed while waiting for the applicant to provide the additional documentation required (25,800 requests).

The ministry explains in a statement that more than half of the submitted petitions have been rejected because the applicant exceeds the income or equity criteria established in the aid. There is a total of 20,000 denials for this reason. The regulations limit the maximum monthly income to 462 euros in the case of an adult who lives alone and an additional 139 euros a month is increased for each additional person, adult or minor, who lives in the cohabitation unit up to a maximum of 1,015 euros per month.

In the case of assets, the maximum level for a single person will be approximately 16,000 euros , and it goes up until it is situated for households with 4 or more people at a maximum of approximately 43,000 euros, excluding the habitual residence.

"The National Institute of Social Security will carry out an exhaustive balance of the evolution of these months of start-up at the end of September, which is the date that the Ministry initially gave to prepare an evaluation of the initial processing process," explains the institution it's a statement.

Social Security insists that those who make the request before September 15 will have the right to collect retroactively from June 1, the date on which the measure came into force. In addition, the ministry argues that it has signed protocols with CCAA and the Tax Agency to accelerate the exchange of information and speed up the process.

The government statement comes after the Association of Victims of the Unemployment and unions such as UGT denounced the slowness in the concession. The secretary general of the UGT, Pepe Álvarez , assured yesterday that the Government proposed a management of the vital minimum income with "too many requirements" and requested a "more automatic system" to simplify the procedures and that the benefit arrives "immediately" at the vulnerable families.
