Escrivá assures that 285,000 families receive child support from the IMV


The Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations, José Luis Escrivá, assured this Wednesday in Congress that there are more than 285,000 families who benefit from cSupplement to help children of the Minimum Vital Income (IMV)approved now a year ago in Congress.

During his intervention in the Plenary of the Lower House, to defend the budgets proposed by the Government for his ministry for 2023, Escrivá explained that the arrival of the IMV to national regulations “was never” intended as a benefit, but as “a set of policies” and an “ultimate safety net” for greater equity.

In this context, he highlighted the data achieved by this measure so far. According to Escrivá, the IMV has reached about 530,000 households. Of the beneficiary families, as indicated, 1 out of 5 are single parents, 2 out of 3 people benefited are women. Also, the 40% are childrenas indicated.

Maximize protection thresholds

To this, the minister has added the efforts that, as he has pointed out, are being done to “maximize protection thresholds” or the deployment of measures that are being carried out with the town halls to “certify” the social violation of families. This work, as indicated, has allowed the Ministry to have direct contact with 90,000 potential beneficiaries of the IMV.

At the same time, he has explained his intention to initiate contacts with other possible beneficiaries of this benefit through SMS messaging and setting up a mobile office for information and processing of the IMV, which he has called “the IMV bus“. In his speech, the head of Inclusion has insisted that this Minimum Income “is not an end in itself” but is “a tool to facilitate the transition of individuals from social exclusion, towards full development” .

In this inclusion, Escrivá also includes migrants, whose reception is also within its competence. As stated, currently there are 35,000 people in the Spanish reception system. A system that, according to the minister, the Government plans to change “substantially” in the coming years.

As Escrivá had already announced, the objective is to replace the subsidies with a concert model and to invest part of the European funds in this issue to go from the 400 reception places that the system had in 2019 to around 6,100 in 2024. On the other hand, the person in charge of Inclusion recalled that the budget for next year proposed by the Government includes the need to continue helping the 150,000 Ukrainians displaced by the Russian invasion and who have requested international protection in Spain.
