In January 2022, pensions in Spain
will go up based on the average inflation registered from December 2020 to November 2021. Specifically, the percentage by which benefits will increase will be 2.5%, due to the result of the average inflation of the last twelve months
between November 2020 and 2021.
However, this increase does not affect a good number of benefits, such as minimum, non-contributory pensions and the Minimum Vital Income, whose percentage will rise by 3%.
The non-contributory ones are intended for people with fewer resources or who do not meet the necessary contribution requirements. There are two classes, retirement and disability. This category of benefits will rise from January 2022 to 414.90 euros per month, which annually translates into 14 payments of 5,808.60 euros.
As for those of disability that exceed or equal 75% and that prove that they depend on another person, they will receive a supplement of 50% on the total money, so it can go to 8,713 euros per year.
For the rest of the minimum pensions, the increase amounts will be the following:
–Retirement aged 65 or over: if you have a dependent spouse, the money received will be 876.53 euros per month; Without a spouse 710.34, while with a non-dependent spouse it will be 674.24.

–Orphan’s pension: the general will be 217.12 euros. For those under 18 with a disability equal to or greater than 65%, it will be 427.14 euros. For those who are in absolute orphan cases, the amount will be 755.3 euros.
