Social Security has appealed a ruling that recognizes the minimum vital income with its full amount to a homeless person, Daniel, 63 years old. The INSS had given Daniel an aid of 253 euros per month and a social court in Barcelona recognized his right to the total benefit, of 461.5 euros per month after the complaint of the affected, defended by the Colectivo Ronda cooperative. The Social Security confirms the appeal before the Catalan Supreme Court and explains to elDiario.es the reason for the challenge. Daniel requested the IMV taking advantage of the clause that allows access to the aid taking into account the income of the present year and not the previous one for “cases of economic vulnerability that have occurred during the current year. In 2019 Daniel received about 2,700 euros in the year, but in 2020 he had no income and had stayed on the street. Social Security explains that Daniel cannot take advantage of this exceptional clause because it only applies to people who were not entitled to the IMV with the income of the previous year and yes with those of the current year, something that does not happen in this case.
