Following the IAS update, revised upwards in relation to the value announced by the Government in the State Budget for 2023 (OE2023), the unemployment benefit threshold will rise (even more) in 2023.
It should be recalled that, since January of this year, this limit has permanently corresponded to 1.15 x IAS, a calculation method that was already in force in situations where the reference remuneration corresponded to the minimum wage.
As, in 2023, the Social Support Index (IAS) will be updated by 8.4% (to 480.43 euros), the minimum amount of unemployment benefit will rise from the current 509.68 euros to 552.49 euros (1.15 IAS). The maximum amount will rise to 1,201.08 euros (2.5 IAS).
The IAS, it should be noted, is the reference value for calculating various social supports, such as social benefit for inclusion, family allowance, Social Insertion Income (RSI), among others.
The Government also maintains a 10% increase in the amount of the unemployment subsidy and the subsidy for cessation of activity in situations where both spouses are unemployed and have children or equivalent to dependents and for single-parent families in which the only relative is unemployed. .
