Can I collect the 52-year subsidy if I am working? This is the answer


charge the subsidy for people over 52 and work is supported, although many of the possible beneficiaries of this contributory benefit do not yet know it. Yes indeed, under certain circumstances that are detailed below and that can be consulted at the State Public Employment Service (SEPE). To better understand this novelty, we must go back to March of this year.

The Government of Spain, at the request of the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy, led by Yolanda Díaz, approved an amendment to the consolidated text of the General Social Security Law, with the aim of equalizing access to the subsidy for those over 52 years of permanent discontinuous workers. And this is where the discordant note comes. Just until March 2, 2022, discontinuous workers could not apply for this benefit. However, as a result of said change, as of March 3, they can request it, which will mean that more than 18,000 people can benefit every month only so far this year.

Having said this, it should be underlined that since March 3, still being a permanent permanent worker and the vacancy to be filled, whether full-time, indefinite or temporary, the subsidy can be requested for those over 52 years of age, as long as the duration of the contract is less than three months. This change means speedily complying with the sixth final provision of the Royal Decree-Law 32/2021, of December 28, of urgent measures for labor reformthe guarantee of stability in employment and the transformation of the labor market.

Get a job and collect the subsidy for 52 years

What is sought by the Executive of Pedro Sánchez is the promotion of indefinite hiring and, in particular, of the discontinuous fixed contract, it will be compatible with welfare protection for unemployment of the current beneficiaries of the subsidy for unemployed people over 52 years of age, who , otherwise, their subsidies would be extinguished as soon as they agreed to a discontinuous permanent employment relationship. Something similar will happen with the Minimum Vital Income (IMV) that can be made compatible with a job as of January 1, 2023. On the other hand, it is vitally important to know that in order to receive this financial aid, you must comply with a series of general requirementsas detailed on the SEPE platform:

  • be in a situation of unemployment.
  • To have 52 years or older.
  • Having exhausted the contributory benefit or the unemployment subsidy after having contributed at least 15 years for retirement and 6 years for Social Security unemployment.
  • Do not receive income of more than 75% of the Interprofessional Minimum Wage.

New amounts for 2023

Another important point has to do with the new amount of the subsidy for people over 52 years of age scheduled for 2023 announced by the Minister of Finance and Public Administration, María Jesús Montero, during the presentation of the new General State Budgets. The IPREM will reach 600 euros per month, that is, 3.6% more than now. It should be remembered that today it is used as the monetary indicator for the granting of aid and social benefits, which currently stands at 579.02 euros per month.
