According to the data of Gestha, they would beabout 1.1 million potential beneficiaries, which will mean, in UGT estimates, an amount of more than 50 million euros in returns.
In the questionnaire it will be necessary to confirm the years that the aid was received and the bank account number in which you want to deposit the money. Once the petition has been verified and ratified, a few months later the corresponding amount will be returned in addition to the interest for the delay.
