The aid of 200 euros, approved by the Government two weeks ago in the extraordinary Council of Ministers, can be requested from this Friday, July 8. This measure, managed by the Tax Agency, has been announced to mitigate the impact of the rising inflation caused by the pandemic and the recent war between Ukraine and Russia. In fact, the annual variation rate of the CPI in Spain in June 2022 is already around 10.2%, the most intense rise in 37 years.
Contrary to others implanted aids also in the package approved to mitigate the economic effect of the war in Ukraine, this measure will not benefit all Spanish citizens. In fact, the Government estimates that some 2.7 million beneficiaries will have access and only those who meet a series of requirements will be able to request it.
This is all you need to know about the requirements to request the aid of 200 euros, how to apply to access this check and the deadline to submit it.
Who can request the aid of 200 euros
Although this check promoted by the Government can be requested by both unemployed and salaried and self-employed, it will be necessary to meet a series of requirements to receive it. It will be the income that marks the people who can have access to this help: they must have low income and assets.
To access it, it will be necessary that the annual income has been less than 14,000 euros in 2021 and that your assets are less than 43,196.40 euros, discounting the habitual residence.
However, those who already receive the Minimum Vital Income or receive pensions from the General Regime and the special Social Security Regimes will not be able to apply for this aid. The Government's reason for explaining this exclusion is that the IMV has already been revalued by 15% in the extension of the anti-crisis decree, and pensions will do so based on inflation.
Requirements to apply for the aid of 200 euros
- Have legal residence in Spain
- Not be collecting the Minimum Vital Income or Social Security pensions
- Reside in households in which the sum of the income received, by all components of the family, has been less than 14,000 euros in 2021
- Do not exceed 43,196.40 euros of family assets, once the habitual residence has been deducted
In the event that the applicant does not live alone, the calculation of the level of income and assets will be carried out taking into account the income of the people who reside at the same address and make up their family nucleus. However, in this case, the income of other people with whom the house is eventually shared, but who do not have family ties with the applicant, is not computed.
Where and how is the 'anti-inflation' check processed?
This check can only be requested online through an electronic form in the Tax Agency website. To do this, it will be necessary to have the digital key to carry out the procedures with the Public Administrations ([email protected]) or an electronic certificate (including DNI-e). The applicant must also communicate their NIF and that of the people with whom they live ―it is not necessary if they are under 14 years old―, in addition to a bank account number.
It will not be necessary to present any documentation, since it will be the Tax Agency itself that will be in charge of managing these requests and verifying that the requirements stipulated to request the 'anti-inflation' check are met. It will be other Administrations that "will send the necessary information to the Tax Agency to verify compliance with the necessary requirements to request the aid"
Those taxpayers domiciled in the Basque Country or Navarra must submit the application to the local institutions.
Deadline to apply for help
The measure can be requested from this Friday, July 8, through the website of the Tax Agency. This has been announced by the Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, in whose portfolio these requests will be managed. However, it can only be requested until September 30, 2022.
