Ponta Delgada ,  August 18, 2010

Social integration income with new calculation rules

With the entry into force of the Decree-Law no.70/2010 of July 16 on August 1, some amendments were introduced in the access conditions to social benefits awarded by the Social Security which are subject to income eligibility as well as in other types of support granted by public entities.
In view of the new Decree-Law approved by the Government of the Republic, the Social Security is reviewing the benefits of the Social Insertion Income (RSI) as a result of the implementation of new percentages in the amount of the social pension that is used to calculate this social benefit, taking into account the income and the household compositions (100% of the social pension, the applicant + 70% per adult + 50% per minor). In some cases, the awarded amount may be discontinued or adjusted.
The benefit to be allocated corresponds to the difference between the amount calculated according to the household composition and the sum of the global household income.
Following these amendments, the support awarded will be reduced in 62.62% of the cases and discontinued in 6.27%.
In this context, the beneficiaries of the Social Insertion Income are being notified by the Social Security Services to express their opinion on the aforementioned amendments within 10 working days from receipt of notification.
Moreover, the complementary support concerning the compensation for housing, dependant and disability expenses as well as other support were repealed under the provisions of the same diploma. The additional support awarded on a regular basis and maternity support, in force by August 1, 2010, will be assured until the end of the respective grant period, which cannot exceed July 31, 2011.
