The CSocial Rights Ministry will pay in the coming days the payment of economic benefits for care in the family environment of dependent people in the current alarm situation due to the crisis of the coronavirus.
In order to guarantee the reception of the economic benefit for care in the family environment of people in situations of dependency, the Ministry of Social Rights, Equality, Diversity and Youth of the Canary Government, through the General Directorate for Dependency and Disability, has advanced the closing of the payment corresponding to these benefits, with which their beneficiaries will receive the payment of the same in the next days.
“Throughout the week we have worked to expand PCI to more people who may need it, advance dependency benefits, care for people who may suffer abuse and ensure that no older person feels alone. We continue to work in coordination with the rest of administrations so that more aid arrives, that they arrive earlier and arrive better. We are not going to leave anyone behind “, clarifies Santana.
As explained by director General of Dependency and Disability, Miguel Montero, with the advance of the payroll closing, “we guarantee the tranquility of 13,954 beneficiaries of these benefits and their family environment, something especially important in the face of the alarm situation in which we find ourselves. “
“Serving people in vulnerable situations is the priority of our department,” says the Minister for Social Rights, Equality, Diversity and Youth, Naomi Santana.
Payment in April of pending renewals of the PCI
In this sense, it must be remembered that the Ministry of Social Rights has already given an order to incorporate, after complying with the requirements, all the pending renewals of the Canary Insertion Benefit (PCI) for next April, a measure that affects more than 1,200 applications for renewal of this financial aid, which will begin to be paid to families during the month of April.
Likewise, the Executive is studying formulas to be able to incorporate all the pending requests as soon as possible.
