Do you have the subsidy for people over 45 years of age for the extra Christmas pay?


The subsidy for people over 45, managed by the State Public Employment Service, is a non-contributory benefit aimed at working people, who are 45 years old or older, have exhausted the unemployment benefit. Of course, to receive this financial aid it is essential not to have family responsibilities in your care and to be registered as a job seeker for a period of one month from the exhaustion of unemployment. Likewise, as occurs with the subsidy for those over 52 years of age, recipients must lack of income above 75% of the Minimum Interprofessional Salary. Currently, the SMI is 1,000 euros gross per month divided into 14 payments.

With less than two months to go before Christmas, there are many recipients who wonder daily if they can receive the second extra pay of the year, as is the case with extra Christmas bonus for pensions spread over 14 annual payments. Precisely in this sense, the SEPE, a public body dependent on the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy, led by Yolanda Díaz, recalls that this economic amount, directed so as not to fall into risk of exclusion, will not be entitled to receive the extra pay. of Christmas. The reason is very simple. Subsidy for people over 45 years of age is divided into 12 annual paymentsinstead of 14, as in the case of most retirement pensions.

How long does the subsidy last for people over 45?

Contrary to the subsidy for older people, this economic amount has a certain duration. Specifically, six months. However, in the case of discontinuous permanent workers, the duration will be equivalent to the number of months of unemployment contributions in the year prior to the request, when the date of the causal event is prior to March 2, 2022. Regarding the amount, is equal to 80% of the Public Income Indicator for Multiple Effects (IPREM). That is, 463.21 euros per month. However, according to the estimates of the Executive of Pedro Sánchez, an increase of around 8.5% is expected for next year, so could reach 480 euros in 2023. Regarding the payment, the SEPE clarifies that it will be made between the 10th and 15th of the month immediately following the one in which the accrual corresponds.
